Because of his win at Celtic Manor today, Luiten will probably be around place 35 on the OWGR starting tonorrow, and in the top 10 in The Race to Dubai. In his last three tournaments Luiten finished T4, T5 and 1. Very impressive. This also is his biggest prize money in a single tournament.

Good on Joost but was very disappointed to see Jaidee do so poorly on last day.  Shoot 75 and you are dead meat.

Was watching on TV and impressed by par 5 final hole where Joost drives WAY right, nearly OB but into the deep cabbage.  Cannot see the fairway for the hill  and hacks out across the fairway into the rough on other side.  Better lie but now 200+ yrds from green, over water and steep front apron.  Fires the iron onto the green and putts up close to seal the deal.  JaJaJoost!!

Pff, tell me about it. He made his fans sweat like crazy on that last hole with a bad drive and a very long putt to get it close. Overall his final round was not that good to be honest, especially his putting (two lip outs on the first three holes is also not helping..). Gladly nobody who was very close shot a realy low score so it was enough. Molinari his putter was also too cold. In the end this is his third victory in the last 1,5 year, his third top 5 in a month (sixth in 2014) and he rises to the 36th place on the world ranking. The final series are coming up with big purses; if he manges to score good there the top 25 might be in reach. But let's not get carried away, to stay in the top 50 the first year you entered there is good. Hopefully next year with his new experience he can manage to perform better in the majors with some nice finishes.

Joost is now firmly entrenched in the world's top 50 and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he isn't in the top 20 by the end of the season - he's that good

Joost Luiten fans from USA, you will see him more next year:

Quote Joost Luiten:
'Ik ga binnenkort met mijn team zitten om alles eens goed op een rijtje te zetten. Volgend jaar zal ik een stuk meer in Amerika spelen, zoveel is zeker. Mijn exemption hier is tot 2016 zeker en ik mag op basis van mijn ranking twaalf toernooien spelen in Amerika. Samen met onder andere Chubby en Dan (zijn manager en caddie, red) ga ik kijken wat we gaan doen. Dan heeft veel ervaring in Amerika en hij weet inmiddels ook wat voor soort banen mij wel en niet liggen. Met mijn hele team gaan we goed kijken welke toernooien het meest geschikt zijn om optimaal gebruik te maken van de kansen die ik nu ga krijgen. Mijn resultaten hier geven me voldoende vertrouwen om het ook eens in Amerika te gaan proberen.'

Short translation: 'I will play a lot more in the States next year, that's for sure. My exemption on the European Tour till 2016 is settled, and based on my ranking I'm allowed to play 12 tournaments in USA. My caddie has a lot of experience in USA and he knows which course will suit me and which will not. With my whole team we will take a look which tournaments I will play. My results here gave me enough confidence to give it a try in USA as well.'

The prospect of Joost mania sweeping the States next year increased with him being entered at 6/1 to make the 2016 Ryder Cup by UK bookmakers

Given that Westwood, Bjorn, Gallacher, Donaldson and possibly Poulter are unlikely to play again, and who knows, even McDowell. There could easily be 5 or 6 spaces going. The 2016 team could be a bit of transitional affair. Darren Clarke is earmarked to captain

We'll see, a lot can happen in two years. However I would be quite disappointed if he won't make it. I really believe that from tee to green he's one of the best out there. He's already 36 now on OWGR, if he manages to improves his putting a little bit he can be top 10.... Last year was his best year ever, and even after that he managed to go from ranking 50 to where he is now. Playing in all the majors and winning another tournament last week hopefully gives him the experience to take it to the next level.

Starting Thursday, Super Joost will play at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Other big names: McIlroy, Kaymer, Dubuisson, Gallacher, Molinari, Oosthuizen, Harrington and more. The last three tournaments Luiten got 1 title en two more top-5's so the expectations are high.

Wow, surprised to see Rory getting back out there right away, good for him.

Good luck to Mr. Super Joost this weekend!

    • Most of my rounds are at 4,200 ft, at sea level that 3W is probably 15ish yards shorter.  I’m not as long as it sounds, unfortunately.  I would utilize the 3W on more than just 14 tee shots (2nd shot on par 5s, choke down for some 190-230 shots, hit some low punch shots). I’m certainly not saying you’re thinking about anything wrong (as far as your game and selection), I was hung up on the “terrible option” comment.  I really like my driver and hybrid as well, if this were a 6 club challenge I’d swap out the 3W for the driver and hybrid all day.  But alas, we only get 5 clubs.
    • The handicap season is over. You should have told him you can warm your balls with whatever you want 😜
    • On my home course I’d take driver, 3-hybrid, 7-iron, SW, and putter. Driver is debatable, because I only hit it 3-4 times per round, so I could probably bring a 3W and drop 3-hybrid and rearrange the irons/wedges (3W, 5-iron, 8-iron, SW, putter). But driver gives me the best chance to score well on the par-5 holes (longest is 505 yards), and I wouldn’t want to give that up, since these holes are where I make birdie most often. 
    • Say a prayer for our state: From M-Live: Michigan reported 15,385 new COVID-19 cases, about 7,693 a day, and 351 deaths on Tuesday, Dec. 7 and Wednesday, Dec. 8. Over the last seven days, Michigan reported an average of 7,203 new, reported cases and 108 new deaths. These are up from 5,980 new cases per day and 71 deaths a week ago. State data, last updated Friday, Dec. 3, shows 65.8% of residents 12 and older have received at least a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The state is now seeing the greatest number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since the start of the pandemic. Previous highs were set in the spring of 2020.
    • Day 130: Cold and drizzly outside so continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel to keep club from going too much inside, and also working on transition move. Transition feels good in slow rehearsal, and okay striking balls at slow speed, but hasn’t translated to 100% speed well yet.
