The Olympic Games too (in August 2024)… This is an important deadline, especially for French players. You have to place yourself. Without forgetting the top 10 for the PGA Tour (Editor’s note, at the end of 2023) We will take stock with my staff and see in which compartment we can still improve.

I will not resume competition before Abu Dhabi (January 19-22). I’m leaving for New York tonight. I stay a week to see my physical trainer. We’re going to do a year-end review. All my staff are there. We are going to perform physical, golf and bio-mechanical tests… Once all this is over, I will return home (to Scotland), and I will rest a bit… Mid-January, it will happen very quickly .
