Well, like I said, probably making a dog's lunch out of the pronunciation but...Joost Luiten...Juice Newton...no? Tap, tap. Is this thing on?

As a regular viewer of the European Tour over the past 10 years I have seen Joost Luiten become a skilled, consistent player. Indeed, he is often touted as a contender for most tournaments he enters o

Joost, rhymes with toast. Along with plenty of great golf and socializing, I'm proud to say that @MacDutch and the rest of his merry band taught me how to properly pronounce Joost's name, first a

Luiten improves 12 places after shooting -1. Compared to his +5 yesterday pretty good, but it's not on the level we're used to see from him the last two years. Hopefully he can have such an impressive moving day as he had last week.

Again big improvement for Luiten, this time 26 places after shooting -3 and inside top 30 now. Could have been a lot better if it wasn't for this triple bogey, bit that's golf... Hopefully a strong finish tomorrow.

Luiten finished 28th at WGC HSBC Championship. Not bad, not good either. Yesterday he had chances for a really, really low score and his first day was simply very bad. Next week the Turkish Airlines Open.

Luiten remains 30th in the OWGR.

Starting this week the Turkish Airlines Open, the third tournament in The Final Series. Joost his game seems pretty good last week, yet his scores are not that impressive (also not very bad). Hopefully he can go low in Turkey.

Small world btw, the company I work for got the job to build and host the new website of Joost Luiten. Am sure we'll do a good job :)

Sat next to @ joostluiten . That bloke can officially sleep! Not a word out of the Flying Dutchman for 10 hrs!

For the third time in the final series, Luiten and Poulter have been matched to play together in one flight. The last tournament starts on Thursday. Luiten has good memories about this tournament, taking a 4th place last year.

Luiten ends the season as 28th at the Official World Golf Ranking.

Looking back it was a good year for Joost. Starting as 49th on the OWGR, and now inside the top 30 and still room for improvement. Winning at Celtic Manor, 3rd at the World Match Play Championship, and a bunch of other top 5's. Downside was missing the Ryder Cup team (by now I think he proved he belonged there, but on the other hand: they played good and won without him) and not having one big result in one of the majors. In the Final Series was hoping for at least one top 5 as well, but you could see he was both physically and mentally tired from the long season with a lot of new experiences. In two weeks time he will already play for the 2015 season the Nedbank Golf Challenge (big purse, small (but strong) field) but after that he won't play untill end of January, training but also charging the battery I guess.

In 2015 also  Joost will play tournaments on the PGA Tour, so hopefully by now he's not a stranger to you anymore when you see his name on the leaderboards. I have big hopes for 2015, and think his experience now will help him perform better on the highest level. Playing in USA might be a risk also (further from home, new courses, different enviroment) but also brings a lot of chances. Go Joost!

McGinley has been fullsome in his praise and bold in his predictions for Super Joost. You can only conclude he would pick him today. In fact he seemed to be intimating within a week or so that he'd made a mistake and should have picked Joost. Europe made errors too, it's just that McGinley's players got him out of trouble. Incidentally, did you see McIlroy interviewed after Dubai about his seasons highlights? Two big ones are obvious he explained. The Open was a tournament he'd grown up watching so to win the claret jug at Hoylake for the first time was a dream come true ,and that topped his list. The other big one he explained was the Ryder Cup, and that there was something very special about team matchplay that he enjoys above all else and lavished it with praise as a spectacle, and that he's "hopefully looking forward to many more in the future". He didn't mention anything else. He did say a few months ago that he no longer plays for money and those choices (or the reasons he gave for them) would seem to back that up. By contrast, Phil Mickelson couldn't even identify the Ryder Cup as a future target when he'd just qualified for it, and when it was about 6 weeks away, and went blathering on about the Olympics instead.

Clearly it's going to be a big year for Super Joost, but there have also been plenty of promising Europeans who've made this journey and disappeared off the radar.

Starting next Thursday, the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa. Only 30 players, no cut but a purse of $ 6,500,000 (!).

Very strong field, including Kaymer, Schwartzel, Todd, Donald, Jimenez, Donaldson, Gallacher, Westwood, Jaidee, Na, Luiten, Koepka, Lowry and Oosthuizen. First torunament on the European Tour rankings 2015.

Not a good start from Luiten in South Africa: yesterday level par, today +2. Kaymer (+5), Na (+6) and title defender Bjorn (+8) also not reaching their potentional. Donald is leading after he shot -9 today.

    • Ah, yes, great.  Haven't got to #19 and interpretations in my studies!  Thank you!! Hypothetically, if a player had this situation, and took an unplayable, and then dropped it in the wrong place (i.e. the fairway).  That's DQ yes? I guess it'd have to be, a serious breach, nothing else makes sense. I see it in 14.7b(1).  
    • Day 115 (7/30/21) - 9-hole league tonight. I hit really good drives, but didn't follow-up very well. Generally speaking, my short game was mediocre. Between my tennis elbow acting up and a bad scrape and bruise on my left wrist which I managed to do cleaning the garage today, I've decided to take the week off to heal, so my next entry will be starting over at 1 after league next Friday night.
    • Day 66, July 30, 2021: Played 27 holes today. Still haven’t made many longer putts, maybe I’m saving them for member-guest next week.
    • They are a fun group of guys.  The stories they tell are epic.  
    • 19.2a/2 – Stroke-and-Distance Relief Is Allowed Only at Spot of the Last Stroke The option to take stroke-and-distance relief for an unplayable ball applies only to where the last stroke was made; a player is not allowed to go back to the spot of any earlier strokes made before that. If the stroke-and-distance relief option or the back-on-the-line option are not favourable, the only option is to take lateral relief multiple times, taking a penalty each time, until the player can get a ball into a playable location.
