Golfer Joost Luiten finished third at the India Open. In the final phase, the South Hollander had chances for more, but the putts did not fall to really participate in the victory. Last week, 37-year-old Luiten finished third in Thailand.
On the final day of the India Open, Luiten was unable to close the gap with the Germans Marcel Siem and Yannik Paul. He got a score of -12 on the tricky Gary Player Course at DLF Golf & Country Club. Siem won the tournament with a score of -14, Paul needed one more stroke.
Luiten closed the tournament with a round of four strokes under par. He recorded five birdies and one bogey on Sunday. The Dutchman also had a round of -4 on Saturday. During the first two days, he went around -2 each time.
Luiten hoped to book his first tournament victory since 2018 on Sunday. Five years ago he was last in Oman the best on the European tour, now called DP World Tour. Last year, Luiten took a few months off the sport because of a ‘golf depression’. Now the Bleiswijker is back in 15th place in the year ranking and seems to be completely back.
