But the shot he hit on on Wednesday at Trump International Golf Club Dubai was the one he had been waiting 30 years to hit - a hole-in-one.
The two-time European Tour winner took to Instagram to announce his first-ever ace, which just so happened to come on a par-4 ... because golf.
Colsaerts is seen picking his lucky ball up out of the hole and admitting to the camera that a friend of his always said his first one would come on a par 4.
So with one swing of the driver Colsaerts picked up a hole-in-one and a friend who can tell the future.
That's a good day at the office.
