Joost Luiten gave his many followers and friends a Dutch treat at the weekend when he joined the two-time European Tour champions’ club.
Joost’s gradual return to top form came to a successful conclusion in Austria when he led throughout the weekend to triumph in the Lyoness Open at the Diamond Country Club.
Eighteen months after a debut win at the Iskandar Johor Open, Joost collected his second with a two-shot triumph over fast-finishing Thomas Bjorn, who prevented an ISM 1-2 by pipping Frenchman Romain Wattel.
Romain shot four consecutive sub-70 rounds and can take pride in third being his best finish of the season to date.
Gregory Bourdy and Shiv Kapur completed a quartet of top-ten finishers while Fredrik Andersson Hed and Simon Wakefield tied for 19th on seven under, with Simon Dyson and Matt Baldwin one behind in tied 25th.
