Joost Luiten did not manage to climb in the classification on the final day of the Italian Open. The Dutch golfer finished in 25th place in Rome.

The 33-year-old Luiten completed his last round in 71 strokes (par). He listed three bogeys and compared three birdies.

De Bleiswijker finished in a total of 280, four strokes below par. After the opening day he was third, but then he dropped to a position outside the top twenty.

The victory in the Italian capital went to Bernd Wiesberger. The Austrian needed a total of 268 strokes and held back the Englishman Matthew Fitzpatrick, the leader after the second and third day.

Luiten made a change to wells

Luiten made a change in the putting on the greens prior to the Italian Open. He changed his grip by using underneath his left hand with his right hand.

The Italian Open belongs to the lucrative Rolex Series and has a prize money of 7 million dollars (converted 6.35 million euros).

Luiten played the tournament six times before and finished once as fifth and once as fourth, although that was on a different course.
