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

I poured myself another glass of wine. Let's see some nice golf. Btw, and I'm serious, did you know Luiten and Wiesberger are very close friends? Not sure how this is interesting, just a fun fact I guess.

If shot tracker is correct that must be quite frustrating. Damn, if his putting was on high level like the rest of his game this tournament.,, ah well, that's golf ofcourse.

Tough day for Super Joost. Couldn't quite have another round in the 60's. Even par is not too bad, but scoring was out there today..

Level par for the day, ended as 26th with -7. Not bad, but after dancing around the top 10 for three days I can't deny I'm slightly disappointed. Even though he matches his best major result ever. This doesn't help him really in the Ryder Cup rankings as well. Even winning a (small) tournament in Europe in the next few weeks doesn't put him on the team directly: he needs to play good and maybe, maybe he will be a captain's pick.

I think Joost will have mixed feelings also. Playing well and solid, but didn't hole enough (birdie) putts. Anyway he will take back home a good experience, and he showed to himself en to the golfing world he's a player who can play at a high level and content for the high places. Good to see he ended his round with 2 birdies also.

Okay, what can we expect from Luiten in the next few weeks.

On American television he said he would play 2 more tournaments in Europe in August to try to qualify for the Ryder Cup. On his website those tournaments are not stated, so I don't know which 2 out of the 3 he will play. There aren't any big tournaments coming up, so that means he needs to win and even then it will probably not enough for direct qualification. In one month the KLM Open again, where he is title defender. This is after the Ryder Cup team will be announced and it doesn't affect the Ryder Cup lists.

On the world ranking Luiten remains 47th. Considering this is his first year in the top 50, keeping that position this year would be quite good. Goal has to be to remain in the top 50 untill the end of the year, and to look up next year when all those tournaments are not 'new' anymore. Very curious if will play on the PGA Tour instead of the European Tour.

Short reaction from Luiten on his website:

Played well, but missed a lot of putts. Then you finish level for the round.

Despite the birdies on 17 and 18 it feels like a disappointing final round. I could have scored much better.

On the other side I can also say that my game feels better and better.

I really don't think playing in Denmark or the Czech Republic will help his cause. He'll obviously play the KLM & probably the Euro Masters or Welsh Open.

    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.   
    • I think you keep searching for different things when in reality you need to find your priority thing and work on that until it’s no longer the priority thing.
    • Oops. I should have said 'discarded cigarette lighter' rather than a walnut.
    • I have been doing a drill where I swing with my right arm only (right-handed golfer). In taking the club back slowly with my right arm only to the top and pausing there, I have found that the only real efficient way to initiate the downswing is for the lower body/hips to rotate towards the target. The lower body is needed to tug/pull the upper body/right arm. The momentum created on the downswing of the right arm does not have the left arm to get in the way and stall the swing. I find that the body opens up fully to the target without thought or concentrated effort involved. So practice a full, slow backswing with a pause at the top with the right arm only. Then do a good downswing and the body will be facing the target and there is also some good lag and forward shaft lean.  
    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
