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

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.

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.

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.

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.

He needs some more birdies. It's possible, he's creating chances.

    • Another example is giving unsolicited advice. Could be as simple as, "it plays long." Supposed to be a two stroke penalty.  
    • Does anyone remember that photo from about 10 years ago that showed a guy walking across Washington Road with his beginner set of golf clubs on a  buggy because he had secured a ticket for one of the practice rounds? It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I've tried to find it but can't.
    • This was the fourth time I played round of golf and very first time I kept a score. I got 115, double par limit,  good bad or ugly?  This was also first time I played with this neighbor and his friend, thanks to them who don’t mind a newbie like myself. The course, canyon lake CA, is pretty short course 6000 yds but with some narrow fairway and quite a bit of elevation. My observation The first few rounds was when my friend, who got me into golf game, showed me around of what I would see in golf course and also showed me different stroke/shot and different clubs. First off, good stuffs, I got a few chances of birdie, two of them were short par 3 (150-160 yds) 5-iron hit on the green, a few straight driver 200+yds landed on fairway. Only got 1 par out of 18 holes, mostly double bogies and a few double par. Lost only 2 balls, got into bunker only 3 times (2 were successfully rescued in first strokes) and only 2 second hit from the tee.    The bad, ugly and need a lot of improvement. Got 4-5 drop penalties 2 lost ball, the rest were in the rough and behind brushes. Never got 1 putt into the holes mostly 2 putts and a few 3 putts. And quite a bit (4-5) of hit the ground shots. My observation. I need a lot of consistency, I got a few good shots while my neighbor’s friend (score 85) got only a few bad shots. Better judgment, instead of easily chipping (less than 30yds with clearly view to the flag, I pitched and end up either short or way over. Aiming, I only got the ball landed where I want it a few times, a few 15-25 feet off and a lot of not even close 😢😢😢. And clubs selection, I got a few shorts shot to the green (80-100yds). I hope this will improve the more I play. I enjoyed the game and company, I say it way better than when I had no idea what to do and what clubs to use.😁😁😁. A few shots I got on video  (short and missed aim, too bad I didn’t get any of lucky shots)  
    • Day 62, July 26, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going.
    • Iacas doesn't need to. The polling has been done by others and the general feeling is overwhelmingly clear. These titles have to go. This is an issue that has been addressed for at least a couple of decades and it is only now that things are actually being changed, rather than merely talked about. You don't get to say that something isn't objectively offensive because it's an issue you don't care about. People are going to decent lengths to prove to you that it isn't a matter of opinion. The fact that YOU don't care is irrelevant. There are a few in this thread who say stuff like "people are too easily offended" or "people are too thin-skinned". No, people care about  demonstrably negative and demeaning names and stereotypes and are supporting efforts to wipe them out. Why does that bother you?
