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

Good luck to Mr. Super Joost this weekend!

Super Joost is only getting his eye in for 2015 on the claret jug

Last year this was where Peter Ulhein shot a 60 having just missed by a whisker to get Europe's first 59. They must have been terrified at Kingsbarns! They have aspirations to host the Open and the indignity of surrednering a 59 wouldn't go down well

One of my favorite tournaments of the year, mostly because I played 2 of the 3 venues and the other I spent the afternoon drinking at the bar with the torn ligaments in my ankle iced and elevated while my buds played the course (Kingsbarns). The staff there treated me like a king (and got me pretty hammered). Damn, do I love me some Scotland.

Opmerkelijk dat Joost, nadat hij definitief geen Rydercup speler zou worden, beter is gaan spelenen zelfs een toernooi won..

Kan hij de druk op het hoogste niveau aan ""is the question"".

By Far the best Dutch golfer we had.

All the best,

Piet

Not a great start from Joost Luiten at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. Wit level par we can find him mid table. Three birdies on the last five holes were fine though.

Where abouts did he play?

A quick flick at the scoring seemed to indicate that St Andrews was playing more difficult than Carnoustie, with Kingsbarns probably the easiest of the three. When they first ran this, Kingsbarns had only just opened and was widely regarded to be at a very similar level difficulty to Carnoustie. Mind you, they've got 40 mph winds forecast today which means they might see the other side of Carnoustie. St Andrews does at least have big greens to aim in these conditions, and Kingsbarns can become diffcult. Could be really entertaining links golf

The one thing to say about the Dunhill is that it's actually free to attend (Sunday apart). It's golf's way of saying thankyou to the east coast and they do a fireworks display and St Andrews in particularly turns into a bit of a golf festival (so far as St Andrews can ever become a festival). If you ever wanted to watch an exhibition of links golf plus doing a bit of celebrity spotting this ain't a bad one as the courses are only an hour between them Carnoustie to Kingsbarns,w ith St Andrews in the middle

That's cool, I would love to play St Andrews once for real. Now I only play it at WGT ;)

Yesterday Luiten played Carnoustie, today he will show up at Kingsbarns.

For the first time in 2014, Luiten missed a cut on the European Tour. Cut went to -4 how it looks now. He's in good company of Dubuisson and Kaymer. Derksen is keeping the Dutch hopes alive after a -9 today and T6.

Great event today. Silent, why is Derkson retiring? He's pretty good and too old yet, pretty odd.

He stated he doesn't want to live 'out of his suitcase' anymore. It's a shame, playing pretty good this year.
