DURBAN, South Africa (AP) — Joost Luiten holed out for an albatross on the way to a 5-under 67 Friday and a share of the second-round lead with Louis Oosthuizen and Tommy Fleetwood at the Volvo Golf Champions.
Dutch golfer Joost Luiten will take a one-shot lead into the final round at the Irish Open on Sunday with a chance at his second victory this month.
"The ball just pitched exactly where I wanted it to, in front of the green and rolled right up to the flag and disappeared in the hole," said Luiten, who turned 28 on Tuesday. "So, yeah, it was a good feeling. I've never had an albatross before and now at 7 under par I am in a great position for the weekend."
Even though major winners Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke failed to make the halfway cut, Luiten said there will be no less pressure on Sunday.
