'Friday: From the tee it all was okay, but the irons were not sharp enough. Much to often I left myself with putts for birdie which were way to long, and the bogeys I made came out of nowhere. But luckily I'm not to far behind from the leaders, so tomorrow we will see if I can get any closer.' From his website. Obviously he's not in a good mood nd not happy at all. Could also see it on he course, seemed quite irritating. Not smart, hope he will have his a-game in the weekend. He needs it!

Just a suggestion, Silent. You could put this in quote form. Such as: [Quote]'Friday: From the tee it all was okay, but the irons were not sharp enough.

[QUOTE]Saturday: yes, the applauce from all those people was great ofcourse, after yet another birdie at 18. The day began disastrous with that 9 on a par 5, second hole. Nothing, absolutely nothing went well there. Terrible drive into the trash and doing that on a course like De Kennemer your score goes down the drain then. Ofcourse I wanted to make it right and I managed to do that pretty well. At hole 3 an excellent par and after that 4 birdies in a row. Before the turn unfort. a bogey, but with mire birdies at 10, 15, 17 and 18 I can look back at a good round. Okay, the gap to the leaders seems a but big, but you never know. We'll see tomorrow, please all come watch: the course and the weather are excellent and I might be a very exciting last day[/QUOTE]

Sunday: The expectations were still high, and I started excellent with par, birdie, birdie. Unfort. on 6 and 7 no birdie or better, but 'just' pars. Then I lost it a bit with bogeys on 10 and 11, but I managed to overcome that slightly with birdies on 12 and 15.

At the last hole the putt for birdie júst missed. Would have been nice, not only for me, but also for everybody there on the stands and walking with me. Thank you so much for that. Fantastic to see you are there for me. Thanks again for all the support.

Taking everything into considiration I can look back at a succesfull tournament, even though I would rather compete all the way for victory. But well, a T5 and at 3 out of the 4 days under par it's not bad at all.

Well, 4 strikes away from the winner.... can't help thinking about the 9 on that par 5 Joost shot. Golf doesn't work like that, but still...Anyway, Joost is back in the top 50 of the world (which is really important to be there end of December, that gives you a spot for Augusta) and again a top 5 finish. Starting Thursday the ISPS Wales Open, and Luiten seems to be in good form.

Joost on his way to Wales. Last year he managed to get a 4th place here; if he matches that result (or tops) it will mean the third top 5 in a row for Joost after T4 at the Italian Open and T5 at the KLM Open.

Luiten is paired with Marc Warren and Simon Dyson in the Wales Open at Celtic Manor. Super Joost has some good memories here, finishing 2nd in 2012 and 4th in 2013.

Luiten alone at 1 (-6), two holes left to play.That's at the moment 8 shots better then 'I only get picked for the Ryder Cup because I have experience' Westwood, 7 shots better then Bjorn and 13 (!) shots better then Gallacher. Donaldson is at -1.

Luiten leads at Celtic Manor after the third round, and will be battling for victory tomorrow. At -14 he defends a 2 shot lead on Lowry and 3 shots on Jaidee and Havret. Molinari is at -10.

Superb. Go Super Joost or Thongchai Jaidee.

Not a good start from Luiten with 2 bogeys, both because of bad putting. Lowry also starts with a bogey, so Joost still leads (share with Havret).

Luiten still leading with Warren. Again he missed a putt for birdie by a few inches, his fairway game seems quite good last couple of holes. 10 holes left for him.

    • Simpson probably the only player who’s willing to play with him. 
    • Yeah you're missing the fact that most people don't know how to practice properly, don't practice the right things for their swing, practice putting and short game more than full swing, and jump around from tip to tip or training aid to training aid trying to find the next best thing. Hitting 25 balls at half speed with 10 rehearsal swings prior to every ball focusing on one specific swing thought that a coach has identified for you to work on is going to be much more effective than just wacking 75 balls down the range switching clubs every so often.  
    • Felt like I was hacking the ball around on Monday, but in the end, shot a 78. Yesterday's round was a ho-um 75. 2 birdies, 12 pars, 3 bogeys, and 1 double. On the tee in an hour.
    • The calendar says that today’s the 13th.  So, the specific Rules for Putting Greens are our focus for today. What’s new for 2019? The two biggest changes are: DAMAGE ON THE PUTTING GREEN A player may repair almost any damage on the putting green or to the hole. (Note: Natural surface blemishes or imperfections resulting from normal greenskeeping practices may not be repaired.) (R13.1c) FLAGSTICK MAY BE LEFT IN If, as a result of a stroke made from anywhere on or off the putting green, a player's ball strikes an unattended flagstick, they must play the ball as it lies. No penalty. (R13.2a & b) First, the Definition: Putting Green - The area on the hole the player is playing that: Is specially prepared for putting, or the Committee has defined as the putting green (such as when a temporary green is used). The putting green for a hole contains the hole into which the player tries to play a ball. The putting green is one of the five defined areas of the course. The putting greens for all other holes (which the player is not playing at the time) are wrong greens and part of the general area. The edge of a putting green is defined by where it can be seen that the specially prepared area starts (such as where the grass has been distinctly cut to show the edge), unless the Committee defines the edge in a different way (such as by using a line or dots). If a double green is used for two different holes: The entire prepared area containing both holes is treated as the putting green when playing each hole. But the Committee may define an edge that divides the double green into two different putting greens, so that when a player is playing one of the holes, the part of the double green on the side of the edge that is used for the other hole is a wrong green. ***************************** Rule 13 - Putting Greens Purpose of Rule: Rule 13 is a specific Rule for putting greens. Putting greens are specially prepared for playing the ball along the ground and there is a flagstick for the hole on each putting green, so certain different Rules apply than for other areas of the course. 13.1 Actions Allowed or Required on Putting Greens Purpose of Rule: This Rule allows the player to do things on the putting green that are normally not allowed off the putting green, such as being allowed to mark, lift, clean and replace a ball and to repair damage and remove sand and loose soil on the putting green. There is no penalty for accidentally causing a ball or ball-marker to move on the putting green. 13.2 The Flagstick Purpose of Rule: This Rule covers the player’s choices for dealing with the flagstick. The player may leave the flagstick in the hole or have it removed (which includes having someone attend the flagstick and remove it after the ball is played), but must decide before making a stroke. There is normally no penalty if a ball in motion hits the flagstick. What are the parts of Rule 13? 13.1 Actions Allowed or Required on Putting Greens 13.2 The Flagstick 13.3 Ball Overhanging Hole https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=13 Interpretations for Rule 13: https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=interp&section=rule&rulenum=13
    • Here is something that comes to mind with many swings methods I see when it comes to the coaches, teachers, and most simply those trying to help other golfers, etc. BTW, I appreciate teachers, coaches, etc., so don't take offense. There is something to be said about those that have hit thousands of golf balls with any swing method as well as what they learn through teaching and playing. At some point our bodies and minds will "get it." I don't teach golf, but when I teach and practice other things I learn more because I teach myself as well. I believe that is why different swing methods work because of what each person has learned to do. Ever notice how one says do this, do that, and yet that all disagree with each other? I know when I go to my personal practice area and hit balls with understanding in mind, I simply play better because I hit better, no matter what swing I use whether it is a planned stage swing, single plane, easy swing, whatever you want to call it. From what I can tell there is no special secret(s) about the golf swing, but learning and doing in a certain manner or method if you prefer will produce outcome. My point is, after watching tons of golf videos, the true constant that I have observed proven out over and over again is because it is still hitting tons of balls and constant practice that inevitably produces the results. Am I wrong or missing something here? To me, a swing that is easy on my body and minimal tension will make for an overall better golf game and would be the best one to pursue, no matter all the secrets, tips, etc. You golfers have any thoughts?
