As we move closer and closer to the 2013 Spirit International, there is more excitement about the teams committed and the players that we will be seeing on the fairways of Whispering Pines Golf Club.
Our August Team of the Month is Belgium. Belgium has fielded a team in the 2007, 2009 and 2011 Spirit International. Their best finish came in 2007 with a 12th place finish. In 2011, Thomas Pieters lead the Belgium team to a 16th place finish. Since then Pieters (who plays for University of Illinois), has had some great finishes in various championships, including being part of the Fightin’ Illini team that had a runner-up finish in the NCAA Championships and a 2013 Big 10 Conference victory.
Here is a video of the Belgium team introducing themselves at the 2011 Spirit International.
