Luiten hangs on to win Wales Open by 1 shot
NEWPORT, Wales (AP) Joost Luiten overcame a shaky start to shoot a level-par 71 and hang on for a one-shot victory at the Wales Open on Sunday.
Luiten opened with two straight bogeys but bounced back with three birdies on the back nine and then recovered from a poor tee shot on the 18th to make par for the victory. The Dutchman, who had led by two shots after the third round, finished with a 14-under total of 270.
It was Luiten's third European Tour victory and comes after he was overlooked as a captain's pick for next week's Ryder Cup in favor of Lee Westwood.
England's Tommy Fleetwood (67) and Ireland's Shane Lowry (7) shared second place.
