Irish Open: Joost Luiten is Your 3rd Round Leader
The Joost is loose at the Irish Open. Ok, sorry, but I couldn’t resist. Joost Luiten took the lead into the final round of the event being held at Carton House Golf Club. Currently 13 under par, Luiten sits a shot clear of Pablo Larrazabal and three clear of Robert Rock.
“I have been playing very well the last two tournaments as I was also 10th in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth after my win in Austria,” Luiten said. “So tomorrow I will try to do the same, and if so, hopefully it may be good enough to win the trophy. It’s all a matter of staying patient.” As he said, has been playing very well as of late. He’s also no stranger to the winner’s circle, having won the Lyoness Open in Austria earlier this month.
Being a shot back heading into the final round seems to not faze Larrazabal all that much. “I had a lovely day in the office today with the Irish crowds truly awesome,” he said. “I hope tomorrow I can hit the ball as good as these three days and hole as many putts.” That’s one hell of an attitude to take into the biggest round of golf in his life.
Rock, on the other hand has only had three bogeys the entire tournament – two of which came in his third round. If he can manage to put together a clean scorecard like he did the first two days, he’s going to be in the mix late in the final round.
