Joost Luiten - Page 5

Don't know if Joost can keep up the steady play, but I'm hoping so.

Great round, fantastic. Today he will be in the flight with Henrik Stenson, nice!

On his website no reaction yet, guess the webmaster was also already asleep last night.

Me thinkz he needs a new webmaster

Luiten at his website:

'Played a solid round today. Especially the first 14 holes I played very well. Hit a lot of fairways and greens in regulation. To be honest I should have holed more putts and made more birdies. The kast few holes I lost focus a little bit and on 6 unfort. I missed a short putt for par. I believe my ball hit a spikemark, but hey, that happens also. Just like a very long putt from outside the green I holed. That was a nice bonus. All together a very solid round in wet circumstances and a nice position for the weekend.'

He needs to get a bit more of a personality into his feed rather than a narrative. It's actually very matter of fact northern European isn't it, the sort of thing you associate with a Scandanavian or Jarman. If he does play his way onto the team though (or get a wildcard which is the more likely avenue) then someone like Stenson or Kaymer would be prospective foursomes partners for him, so there could be a little sub plot to his play today

 

He's got a reasonable matchplay record hasn't he? he actually looks tailor made for Foursomes

His record in teamplay is very good yes. Seve Trophy last year he won all his fourball and foursomes matches, in th Eurasia Cup won with Dubuisson fourballs and lost foursomes.

Haha I agree. Sounds like he is giving it in monotone using every cliche in the book.

Joost his teetime is 2:10 local time, paired with Stenson.

What are your predictions for Luiten today? His tee-to-green play is phenomonal so far. I hope for a really good round this time, 65.

I'm not that optimistic. It strikes me as being more of a steady than a streaky sort, and I suspect there could b a few who've been there, seen it, done it, who run away today

You might be right. The pressure of playing high in such a tournament, as well as a possible Ryder Cup qualification on the line is completely new for Joost. We'll see, if he can play like last two days and his putting will go just a little bit better he can go low.

Drivable par 4 for Joost now. Gotta take advantage.

He needs some more birdies. It's possible, he's creating chances.
post #87 of 261
Consistent and steady, but not enough pop.

Good chance now on 9, a two metre putt for birdie.
post #89 of 261
Welp.

And another par. He needs to get his putter warm.
