The Dutch duo had already won in three sets from the two finalists from Qatar in the group stage.

For Boermans (26) and De Groot (21) it was their first major overall victory. Earlier this season, they finished fifth twice in Cancin, Mexico, and ninth once in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

Earlier in the day, Boermans and De Groot were also too strong for the Russians Nikita Lijamin and Taras Myskiv in the semi-finals: 21-17 21-15.

Joost Luiten just makes second cut at Scottish Open

6.02 pm: Joost Luiten also just survived the second cut at the Scottish Open. Luiten came to a round of 70 strokes on the third day and is therefore at -3. If Luiten would have needed one more stroke for his third round, he should not have made his appearance on the final day.

The 35-year-old Luiten achieved four birdies and three bogeys and is in joint 69th place. He only needed two strokes on holes 6 and 12. An extra cut was needed as too many golfers had reached the weekend. On Saturday, another ten golfers dropped out.

Just like on the second day, Darius van Driel came out with 69 strokes. The 32-year-old Van Driel is now at -5 and thus shared 48th. On Saturday, he hit five birdies and three bogeys. Belgian Thomas Detry and Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick enter the final day as leaders. Both are at -14.
