Double Dutch for Luiten on home soil


Powered by National Club Golfer


Ten birdies, two bogeys and six pars added up to a 63 and a three-shot victory for Luiten over Bernd Wiesberger. It is Luiten’s fifth win on Tour and his second in his national Open and continues a brilliantly consistent year, the Dutchman also has eight top 10s including two second places.

Wiesberger led after a birdie at the 15th but a bogey at 17 and three late Luiten birdies turned things around..

South Korea’s Ben An was third after matching Wiesberger’s 65, a shot ahead of Alejandro Cañizares, English duo Ben Evans and David Horsey and Australia’s Scott Hend who slipped to a 73.

Andrew Johnston also posted a 65 to secure his second best result of the season while there was not so good news for some of the Ryder Cup side; Lee Westwood (4th) shot a best-of-the-day 63, Matt Fitzpatrick (T7) had a 64 (he opened with a 75 and still finished -10) while defending champion Danny Willett (T12) also fired a 64.

What Luiten said: “The first one was special but this one is very special. It was one of those days where everything I looked at went in the hole. People talk about the zone, and I think I was in it today. I missed one shot when I went in the water on 13 but besides that I didn’t do much wrong. These are the kind of days that make it all worth getting out of bed for.”
