Well, hard to say but he's having a pretty good season so far, gaining about 25 places on owgr in the last few months. His current ranking is still the result of a bad 2015. Hope he can recover from that and take the final step into tp 50 again.

Luiten will play in the Austrian Open now, last chance to qualify for US Open. Last two times he played there, he was tournament winner once and a year later T2. Game on :-)

Starting Thursday Luiten will play the Austrian Open. If he wants to play in the US Open, he should either win the tournament, or finish (solely) 2nd. Well, at least he knows what to do.

He's done it before, right? Let's go Joost.

Luiten eager to return to winning ways

Quote

Joost Luiten is hoping to convert his excellent form this year into an overdue victory at this week's Lyoness Open powered by Sporthilfe Cashback Card. 

The Dutchman has already registered eight top-15 finishes this season, including back-to-back runner-up performances in Spain and China.
Four-time European Tour winner Luiten also boasts a sensational record at Diamond Country Club, having won this event over the Atzenbrugg layout in 2013 as well as third-place finishes in 2011 and 2014.

"It's good to be back," said the 30 year old, who currently lies ninth in the Race to Dubai.

I think he needs to shoot 67 or even 66 to win.

You're probably right. Ofcourse a win would be awesome after two second places this season already, but top 2 (maybe, just maybe top 3 is also good enough) in order to qualify for US Open after all would be amazing.

Luiten shot 4 birdies in the last 6 holes, but lost too many shots before that. T6 finishing position and no US Open.

Officially Luiten didn't qualify yet for The Open, but it's almost certain he'll play there because of his Race to Dubai position (inside the top 10 now):

Top 5 and ties, not otherwise exempt, inside Top 20 in Race to Dubai tru BMW PGA Championship

Almost all players in front of him are already otherwise exempt.

That means that after this week he'll play 4 tournaments in a row, something he doesn't normally do. All in Europe though:

- BMW PGA Championship

- France Open

- Scottisch Open

- The Open

At the BMW International Open Luiten finished T16. A little bit disappointing since being inside the top 10 at Sunday morning. 36 holes in one day was too much for him. 

At the Race to Dubai now 11th, and if I'm not mistaken he's now officialy on the entry list for The Open.

 

This week the Open de France. Same course as the 2018 Ryder Cup, and for the upcoming Ryder Cup double points this tournament, meaning a lot of big names present.

The National course in France,one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in Europe. This will be the 100th Open de France.

    • Huh? The best players in the world might not know much about their equipment (then again, there are some who do), but they're not playing any old shaft. They're playing a shaft that is fit very carefully for them.
    • Day 448: Busy day. Only some time for set up work.
    • Because at your level of golf it's like thinking that a shaft change is going to help you move the ball from left to right or right to left like Bubba Watson. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that golf is about golf equipment. Look at the WITB videos of the top players on Youtube. The majority of them have little or no interest in the shafts they use. They pretty much know they work, don't change them much and in many cases have to look at the shafts to be able to tell with certainty what they are.
    • Day 40 (17 Jan 22) - Yard too soggy for anything outside, opted for putting drills today.  Practiced from 3ft up to 10ft.  Also went all putt putt with setups that forced 2 strokes to get to the hole.  Made for good work on lagging to where I was in position to sink the putt for the second shot.  I like this drill as there are more times than not I have to think "lag" putt to set up for the second.  
    • So I’ve been using $400 Nike IGNITE clubs for about 14 years now and it’s time to upgrade.  They seem very stiff especially when I use someone else's clubs at the range just to get a different feel for it.  My irons on impact feel stiff/rock solid.  I used my friends recently, which were some regular ol' "Top Flite" golf clubs and I noticed the shaft is much more softer, I felt it bend on impact.   I'm not sure which way to go so need some tips.  Should I go for a full set (minus driver and putter) or should I mix and match by getting the irons individually in the irons I use the most, such as 9 iron, 8 iron, 5 iron etc?    What are some good clubs to look at currently? I am ready to get myself clubs that may be more fitted for me in terms of swing speed, power, distance etc.   In terms of budget, I'd say maybe in the $400-1400 range without the driver and putter.
