Belgian golfer Thomas Pieters will compete at this week's WGC-Dell Match Play event despite the shocking attacks in his homeland on Tuesday.
Pieters, ranked 56th in the world, is the lone Belgian in the 64-strong field this week.
He has been grouped with Adam Scott, Bill Haas and Chris Wood.
While Pieters has every intention of finding a way to progress into the last 16 and then of going on to win the tournament, he insists that the devastation in Brussels has certainly put things into perspective.
"I'm not going to moan this week, that's for sure. It's just tough to understand – I just don't get it. So many innocent people," he said.
"It was just one of the worst days to wake up.
"Even when it happened in Paris, it's close, but it's not right near your people. And then now it happens to somewhere I go almost every time I fly out.
"It's shocking to see the images and videos. It's a sad day."
Scotland’s Connor Syme and Englishman Matthew Jordan were also part of the successful quintet.
