Day One: Joost Luiten leads, ahead of Eddie Pepperell and Rasmus Højgaard

From DP World Tour News Report:

Local hero Joost Luiten delighted the home fans by opening up a one-shot lead on the first day of the 2022 Dutch Open as he bids for a third victory at his home tournament.

The 36-year-old Dutchman, who won the KLM Open in 2013 and 2016, shot an opening 65 at Bernardus Golf to get to seven under par, one stroke clear of Englishman Eddie Pepperell and Denmark's Rasmus Højgaard.

Luiten very nearly led by two but his 44-foot eagle putt on the 18th refused to drop despite hitting the hole.  Read more

From RTE.ie:

Home hope Joost Luiten delighted the crowd as he made a brilliant start to his bid for a third victory in the Dutch Open.

Luiten, who is seeking to join the likes of European legends Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer in winning the title three times, carded eight birdies and one bogey in an opening seven-under-par 65 at Bernardus Golf.

That gave the world number 401 a one-shot lead over England’s Eddie Pepperell and Denmark’s Rasmus Hojgaard, with the Scottish trio of Stephen Gallacher, Ewen Ferguson and David Law part of a large group on four under.  Read more

From Sky Sports:

England's Eddie Pepperell is one shot behind leader and two-time champion Joost Luiten after day one of the Dutch Open - with his decision to shun a practice round perhaps paying dividends.

The 31-year-old - winless on the DP World Tour since claiming two titles in 2018, including the British Masters at Walton Heath - carded a six-under 66 with seven birdies and a sole blemish on his final hole.  Read more
