Belgian golfer Thomas Pieters has accused the PGA Tour of altering his head shot for their official website.

The 23-year-old moved into the World's Top 60 earlier this week after finishing second at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship on Sunday. He finished one stroke behind the winner Rickie Fowler.

If Pieters continues his rise up the rankings he may feature at the Masters in April and could play regular events on the PGA Tour. A two-time winner on the European Tour last year, Pieters looks like he is certainly a player that could feature in major events in the coming years on both sides of the Atlantic.

If he continues his trajectory (Pieters was ranked 155th in the World this time last year), the PGA Tour may afford him a proper picture on their website.
