The European Tour challenged Thomas Pieters and Andy Sullivan to a new challenge.

The European tour are back with some more quality content. Thomas Pieters and Andy Sullivan joined the local lad, Ricardo Gouveia, for some alcohol-infused fun.
Thomas Pieters received a lot of attention following his performance at this year’s Ryder Cup. With a final tally of four points, The Belgian Bomber managed to win more matches than any other player. His prodigious length – the man recently hit a 400-yard drive – combined with his competitiveness, mean he’s one of Europe’s most promising stars.
He is an example of the sort of talent the European Tour can produce. Golf writers have a tendency to focus on the PGA Tour and ignore the guys that can come from the continent. Every time a European Tour player wins a major on American soil people are like “who the hell is this nobody.” Danny Willett should not have been described as a one-hit wonder after his Masters victory. He had already won four of the biggest tournaments the continent has to offer.
The European Tour isn’t quite at the same level as it’s American equivalent. However, it would be worth keeping an eye on the Euros if you care about a sweepstake going into the majors.
