Disappointed Luiten gets cut not at US PGA Championship
Joost Luiten has not succeeded in the cut to get in the 99th US PGA Championship, the last golfmajor of the year. The Dutchman ran Friday a round of 73 strokes (2 over par) on the road from Quail Hollow.
The 31-year-old Luiten arrived after a first round of 76 strokes, out of a total score of 149 strokes (seven over par) and that there were three too many to go back to allowed for the third and fourth rounds on Saturday and Sunday.
In Charlotte, North Carolina, ran Lutes a volatile second eighteen hole. He recorded three birdies but also five bogeys.
“I have been in the second round plenty of chances, but they are not utilised,” frustrated Lutes. “It is very disappointing to the cut-to-miss in a major, but fortunately, I notice that my long game again, still slightly better. I have a very, very difficult job a lot of good balls beaten. That is very positive, but now dominates, of course, the disappointment.”
The number 86 of the world fell Thursday during his first round even with a hole-in-one on the fourth hole, but with a score of 5 over par positioning, and he himself is already very bad to the cut in the PGA Championship.

Kevin Kisner and Hideki Matsuyama go provisionally together in the lead at the Quail Hollow Club. The American and the Japanese are both at -8 for the tournament. By ‘dangerous’ lag the game for some time silent at the end of the American afternoon.
Jason Day follows two strokes of the leader. The Australian won the prestigious US PGA Championship two years ago, his first major.
