Albatross Joost great for Luiten in Durban

Published: 11/01/2014

A spectacular albatross helped Holland’s Joost Luiten claim a share of the lead at the halfway stage of the Volvo Golf Champions in Durban yesterday.

Luiten holed his 248yd second shot to the 560yd 10th, his four-iron approach pitching just short of the green and running 20yd up the green and into the hole.

The 28-year-old, who celebrated his birthday on Tuesday, eventually carded a second-round of 67 to finish on seven-under-par 137, a total then matched by England’s Tommy Fleetwood and defending champion Louis Oosthuizen.
