Tomas Levet to concentrate on PGA Tour
Tomas Levet has decided to move to America in a bid to make his mark on the PGA Tour.
The Frenchman enjoyed a successful year on the European Tour in 2004, but has now opted to have a second crack at playing in the United States.
The Frenchman played on the USPGA circuit two years ago but only had limited success as he attempted to travel between America and Europe.
Levet feels he needs to play Stateside in-order-to give himself a better chance of success in the major tournaments, and intends to buy a house across the Atlantic so his family can be with him.
"If I really want to make my mark in this sport, the only thing to do is to give it my best in the United States in the next two years," stated the Parisian.
"The more time I put in playing on their courses the better will be my chances of achieving something in the American Majors.
"I will go over there in two weeks time to play and in February I will spend three weeks in America to buy a house."
Levet's decision comes after a fruitful year on the European circuit.
He won the Scottish Open last season and was ranked fifth in the final Order of Merit standings and also became the first French golfer to be part of a successful Ryder Cup side.
