Nicolas Colsaerts claimed his first European Tour victory in seven years after claiming the Amundi Open de France title by a single shot.

The big hitting Belgian was brilliant from tee to green across the four rounds.

 • REVIEW - TaylorMade M5 driver is a "true all-rounder"

Despite his Callaway allegiances, the 36-year-old has three TaylorMade clubs in the bag, the M5 driver, M6 fairway wood and an M3 3-iron. He used all of them to great effect around Le Golf National, ranking sixth in Stroked Gained: Off the Tee and fourth in driving distance, averaging 317.25 yards.

His ball striking with his irons was also back to its best. He ranked seventh in Strokes Gained: Approach and fifth in Greens in Regulation using his Callaway Apex MB blades.
