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

-1 for the day. Looks like he could have scored more birdies, his iron game seems pretty good again. Hopefully 17 and 18 something nice.

Birdie on 18, 1 foot away from an eagle. Round of 69, and the third round in a row in the 60's. -7. Hopefully he can give it just a little bit extra tomorrow. Off to sleep.

-2 (69) today. Could have done a couple better if i would have holed a couple more putts! Going for a low one tomorrow!!

At his website: '-2, so again below par. I really played well, solid. Especially from tee to green. With a few more holed putts I could have had a really, really good score. The birdie at 3 was very good. I hit the teeshot from 205 yards pinhigh on 1 meter of the flag. Easy putt. The start obviously was not what I was hoping for. Bogey, but after the turn I score 3 birdies and 1 bogey. Let's see what will be possible for tomorrow.'

Where did u see that coverage @silent? I watched the whole tournament and never saw Joost swing a club. Saw him in the background a few time when they showed Stenson.

I have fengshuied my computer to assist Joost into the top 5

He's actually 4/1 for a top-10 finish which I reckon might be a decent price playing alongside Jim. They look like one of those pairings that might help each other improve with relatively complimentary games to each other

They only showed him on the Dutch coverage. Only time he showed up in the coverage here was Stenson's buddy lol. I think he shoots another 69 today...

Apparently they showed him when you had commercials, since we do use the same feed, just with Dutchcommentary. I only saw Joost for a few shots, the rest i had to hear from our commentators.

    • Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great. 
    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now. 
    • @Billy Z is going to lose his 💩 when he sees this. 😉
    • Wrapped up another great trip to Erie, which means as usual I have a lot of homework to do. There's a lot of stuff (unsurprisingly) that @iacas has told me in the past that I'm still struggling with, like needing to be more calm and focused before every shot. Bear in mind if you do read this that these are my feels. Putting Erik checked my aim fairly early on. I do have an Edel putter, so the aim wasn't too bad. It was simply twisted slightly open at address. We also moved the ball back about half a ball and shifted my posture a little upright to get my eyes inside the ball. We did make a mechanical change to my stroke, as I swung the putter with my chest, essentially rotating my trunk around. Erik showed me how to swing the putter by keeping my sternum relatively still and letting my arms swing more around my body. The biggest change we implemented is putting with a purpose. As in, I wasn't really doing it. There were times on the course where my distance control was great and others when it was absolutely atrocious, with no real explanation. We figured out that I was basically spaced out and not really putting, just hitting the ball basically. We worked on some preshot stuff to feel the distance and for me to envision the hole as I make my stroke, to keep the target in focus the entire time. Short Game Mostly stuff I've already been taught. Softer arms in pitching, trust the pivot. I tend to use my arms too much and when I quiet them down, I don't allow myself to pivot fast enough because I'm worried I'll hit the ball too far so I end up hitting everything short. Trust the pivot. Chipping is less wrist hinge, butt of club stays pointing to my belly button. Need to be more calm before the shot. I also need to learn to use different clubs to vary trajectory. Full Swing I'll write this in a separate post. It's getting late and I don't want to do this section injustice by writing something up quickly.
