Luiten lost the first game 2&1 against the top seed in the group, Paul Casey. According to himself he 'didn't deserve to win', even though it was a close match going all square at the 14th. Basically all his drives went right, so his strongpoint (tee to green) wasn't there yesterday. Today Luiten has to play former Masters champion Schwartzel.

After two games Luiten is already eliminated at the World Match Play tournament. I can make a nice story about it, but the truth is he doesn't play very well at the moment...

This also means no top 50 and no participation in The Masters.

Luiten added another tournament to his schedule: this week he will play the Torphee Hassan II in Morocco. A small tournament (he will be the second highest ranked player), but on a beautifull course. And let's be honest, the trophy for the winner is awesome:

Luiten is not playing his best golf at the moment, as a result he failed to qualify for the US Open. Yesterday after a good final round he did end up in the top 10 of the Austria Open, a European Tour tournament he won a few years back.

In two weeks time the Open de France, with a extended purse. On that course the Ryder Cup will be played next year.

Despite a top 10 in Austria a few weeks ago, Luiten is not playing his best golf lately. However, he did qualify for The Open. A good time for a turn around, hopefully he'll find his good form again.

Luiten made an Albatros yesterday at the Andalusian open. He is at -6 and in the lead. Sergio second at -5.

Luiten needs a good result badly, nr 102 at the owgr now.

Saw him play on thursday. First shot I saw was his approach at hole 2 (his 11th, started at 10). At that moment he was at -1 and playing well. I was shattered to see him hitting a really bad shot against a tree and making bogey. But then started the Joost show. His irons were so sharp he did’nt need a hot putter. Three tap in birdies and two from within 6 yards and a score of -5. Amazing to watch him play like the best in the world.

Finally again a (really) good tournament from Joost. Battling for victory until the final hole, coming up one shot short against Garcia to get a second place. Which raises him right back into the top 100 of the OWGR. Hopefully a good finish of the season in The Final Series, good points and money to earn there.

Cool.

You still playing, or just a Joost fan? :-)

Right now not playing; two young boys at home, third on its way, promotion at work and just moved to a new house and city a couple of months ago. Hard to find the time....

Even though just outside the top 64 on the OWGR, Joost is confirmed for the WGC Dell Match Play championship. Very cool, looking forward to it!

Unfort. Luiten his wrist injury, which cost him 1-2 seasons in the past, is back. He didn't play in any tournaments for 2 months now, and today made public he can't say when he will be back and there will be further investigation in the hospital next week. This must be extremely devastating for him, hopefully there will be full recovery in the future...

Where is @Silent ?

Joost Luiten is up to a new start after his injury. A T3, MC and a T6 during last three weeks on the European tour and he is back at T67 on the OWGR. 

I predict an other win this year, also predict playing the majors. Looking forward to it.

    • Day 54 - Trying to get comfortable with this new setup, just hitting some balls indoors. 
    • I’ve never tinkered with swing weight before, and when I build a set of irons I usually just settle for the feel of the clubs as-built with the idea that I’ll eventually get used to the different feel. That said, my main set of irons feels perfect to me (probably just familiarity with them), and adjusting swing weight is something I’d like to be able to do in the future to make my other sets feel closer to them. I’ve just never invested the time to work on it. 
    • Day 321 Did mirror work on takeaway/backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron and 3W working on hip turn piece. 
    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it.
