After a foggy morning, Luiten starts his first tournament of 2021 well | NOW

Joost Luiten started the HSBC Championship in Abu Dhabi solid on Thursday. The golfer is tenth after eleven holes with a score of -3 in his first tournament of the year.

A fog-shrouded golf course prevented half of the participants from completing their round in the morning. Luiten also belonged to that group.

The 35-year-old Dutchman came in the eleven holes he could cover to a birdie, an eagle and nine pars. Rory McIlroy came to all eighteen holes, scored no less than eight birdies and is at the top after the first day with a score of -8.

Luiten started the season this month with experienced Englishman Jason Hempleman as the new caddy. He also found a new coach in Rob Sleeves, with whom he previously worked.

The Netherlands’ best golfer has set himself the goal of winning a tournament in 2021 and eventually wants to return to the global top fifty. He is currently ranked 167th in the world ranking.
