Has won six times on the European Tour since producing a spectacular finish as the Netherlands became world amateur team champions in South Africa in 2006, Luiten playing the last five holes in six under par.

Turned professional the same season, but had to wait until 2011 for his first Tour success. It came at the Iskandar Johor Open in Malaysia, then two years later he added the Lyoness Open in Austria and the KLM Open on home soil. Was viewed as a possible Ryder Cup debutant for the 2014 match at Gleneagles, but his next victory in the Wales Open was achieved just after the end of the qualification race.

It helped him to climb to a best-ever 28th on the world rankings and 11th on the Race to Dubai standings. In 2016 he captured the KLM Open again with a closing 63 and last season he added the NBO Oman Open. Represented his country on golf’s return to the Olympics in Brazil and helped Continental Europe defeat Britain and Ireland at the 2013 Seve Trophy, winning all four games with Gregory Bourdy. Place at Royal Potrush came off the world rankings in the last week of June.
