Congratulations to Joost Luiten who became the first Dutchman since Maarten Lafeber to win his national open.
It wasn’t all plain sailing for Luiten who had to battle hard against in-form Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez. It was pretty much a two horse race in the final round at the Kennemer Golf Club, and both players had to contend with a strong swirling wind too.
It was literally a battle to the end which saw both players dropping shots and both having to hole short putts on the 18th which saw them tied and forced into a play-off against each other.
Jimenez left himself a five footer for par which lipped out and left Luiten a simple two putt to claim victory in his home country.
