Luiten wins rain-shortened Johor Open
Johor, Malaysia – Joost Luiten of The Netherlands fired a under 65 on Sunday to come from behind and win the weather-shortened Johor Open.
Luiten finished at 15-under 198 and earned his first European Tour title by just a stroke at Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club.
Weather problems plagued the event all week and when heavy rain wouldn't allow for much play on Saturday, officials cut the event to three rounds.
Daniel Chopra was ahead by two when the horn sounded on Saturday, but his 70 in the final round left him one short. He was looking for his first European Tour title, but settled for runner-up.
Defending champion Padraig Harrington (69), Rhys Davies (65) and James Morrison (69) shared third place at minus-13.
Gregory Bourdy managed a 70 and took sixth at 12-under 201, while Soren Kjeldsen carded a four-under 67 to come in seventh at 11-under par.
