Luiten aiming big after victory

Joost Luiten is eager to build on his victory at the Oman Open and try to secure a Ryder Cup debut for Europe in Paris later this year.

The 32-year-old Dutchman shot a 4-under par final round of 68 to clinch a two-shot victory in Muscat, with Luiten claiming a sixth European Tour title and his first since winning on home soil at the 2016 KLM Open.

And Luiten is eager to build on the performance and try to mount a challenge for a Ryder Cup debut for Europe when they try to regain the trophy from the United States later this year in France.

He told the official European Tour website: "This is why you play golf, to hold trophies. It's been a great week.

"It's always tough to win out here, all these guys are so good and they keep putting pressure on you. Down the stretch I hit some nice shots and I made some nice putts.

"I need to win another couple to get into the Ryder Cup team, but it's a great start to the year for me."

Europe can be backed at 13/10 to win the Ryder Cup outright at Le Golf National, with the tie priced at 11/1 and a USA victory available at 9/10.
