Luiten I really can not explain, since how we pronounce 'ui' is not a sound in English.

Looking forward to hearing it get mangled on US broadcasts. CBS should hire Don Cherry for the week.

:-$

Sounds something like Lah-ee-ten, with the stress on the first syllable? Yes, I can see the US and UK commentary teams having endless trouble with that...

Luiten is confident (well, as a golf player you always have to be confident ofcourse..)

Good practice day today! Game is feeling good and looking forward to tee it up at 7.40am at tee 1! #USPGAChampionship

Hmmm, my timing to get you guys more familiar with Luiten might not be perfect. Looking at his schedule it seems that the PGA Championship is his last tournament at the USA in the next couple of months. Hopefully he will shine on the European Tour then (and big hopes on the Ryder Cup).

Golf fans if they're happy to adopt him, will follow him on which ever tour he's playing. What would go down really well, as I'm sure golf fans appreciate this kind of engagement, is if you could set up a little bit of interaction between the forum and Joost. I've got a feeling that as an emerging European he'll be a lot more accessible than some of the remote glitteratzi, and once he's satisfied of the sincereity of your approach and the authenticity of the board, he'll do a little bit now and then. I think you'll be surprised, and since you've already had a chat with his dad you'll be in a better position than anyone to judge that. The bottom line is Joost has something of a wider responsibility to golf and golf in the Netherlands (like or not) and whereas no one is suggesting that PR becomes his focus for one second, provided that he can accommodate the odd little bit here and there without disrupting his preparations he ought to be prepared to consider it

That's true. Next month there will be the Dutch Open, better known as the KLM Open (European Tour) where he will be the title defender. October / November will be the final series of the European Tour, with the biggest tournaments and the biggest purse on tour ending in Dubai. A lot to look forward to.

After two bogey's in a row a disappointing +1 now. His driving accuracy so far is 75%, that seems pretty good. Probably can't follow the rest of his round due to obligations, hope to see some birdies when I come back!

Coming back online to see Luiten scored 4 more birdies. Unfort. just a bogey now on 16 to make him go from T2 (!) to T7. Seems so be a solid round so far though.

Did you pick him in the prediction contest?

    • One of the announcers was saying that the rule does allow some old for intent, but it sounded like at one point the caddy said something about trying to figure out if it was a rock, or rock hard, or something. I think it's pretty clear what happened is that the bunkers look like they had some hard packed area, and he was touching them to see how firm they were. Then tried to spin up some lie about it, even though his own lie indicated that he was testing the sand for information. 
    • I started playing golf in college sometime around 1996-1997 when I was around 19. My roommate was an excellent golfer, and convinced me to try it. That, and Tiger Woods explosion into professional golf at the same time was all it took to get me hooked. I never took lessons and I wasn’t good, but I loved the game and I played regularly up until around age 30, when I kind of transitioned into a different part of life; more demanding work, got married, bought a house, kids, etc. I still played every couple months with friends, work events, etc., but my clubs mostly collected dust in the garage. During my away time, I played a ton of indoor soccer and pickup basketball and after aggravating my old football injured knee several times, with several months recovery each time, I gave up high impact sports and started golfing again around age 40. I found that getting back into golf was easier than when I first started. However, I had no bar set from any previous success so I was basically starting from scratch. There was tons of golf content on the internet (lots of pitfalls there though), and golf equipment tech had improved a bunch and I could afford to buy my own shit. I was happy to be outdoors, getting exercise, and having fun playing a great game. After a couple years of hacking around I decided golf was going to be my game. I made a commitment to golf as a pastime, started taking lessons, and I’ve steadily improved since then. 
    • Shot a 94 at Quicksilver. This course is used for Senior PGA events and was used for Web.com events. Instead of the “bump the left knee” feel to start the downswing, I started coming up with a feel that had some direction to it in terms of how the knee worked. To put words to the feel, I’d say “drive the knee forward and down at a 45 degree angle”. I actually started puring some irons. I really really liked this feel. Helps with the weight shift and working down to the ball a bit more. I could feel my low point shift an inch or two forward AND down which made all the difference. The greens were like glass.
    • I wish the Ping app was still available for us common folk.  I had it a few years ago and I thought it was tremendous.  Good to see that the fitting showed what the Ping app did....just bummed the app is done
    • Thought so I'll keep working on it.
