Joost Luiten has hardly been able to improve on the final day of the Saudi International. The 34-year-old golfer finished in 44th place in the Saudi Arabia golf tournament.

Luiten ran a round of seventy strokes on Sunday and closed the tournament with a total of 280, equal to the job average.

De Bleiswijker still started strong with birdies on the fifth and ninth holes, but with three bogeys in the second part he left that good starting position. A birdie on the last hole brought little change in that.

"I have hit too many real mistakes", Luiten demonstrated to Golf.nl critically about his displayed game. "Also drives and then it is suddenly a difficult job. My game is just not sharp enough and especially too changeable."

Luiten had a strong opening round on Thursday (67 strokes) at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club. He finished the first day in a shared eighteenth place, but was unable to continue that good line on Friday (72) and Saturday (71).

The other Dutch participant, Darius van Driel, did not make the cut. With a score of three above par, he got stuck at the shared 88th place and was therefore unable to play in the weekend.
