Flying Dutchman Daan Huizing, ranked No 7 among the world’s amateurs, won the Lytham Trophy by an astonish margin of 11 shots with a seven-under-par total of 273 over the Royal Lytham Golf Club venue for this year’s Open championship.
He led from start to finish with scores of 67-67-71-68 over the par-70 lay-out and probably never noticed that the course has been toughened up for ‘The Open’ in July this year…
It was a Continental 1-2 with Germany’s Moritz Lampert the distant runner-up on 284 (69-72-71-72).
Daan Huizing is one of many members of the National Golf Holland amateurs who use the Robert-Jan Derksen ‘Academy’ within Nunspeet Golf Club. ‘The Academy’ works closely with the NGF to improve their structure in coaching putting to the Dutch top amateur golfers. The Academy is based on the technique that Paul uses in his own ‘Hurrion Quintic’ putting laboratory, located in Birmingham, England. By using multi high speed cameras, Quintic Ball roll, Force platform and special computer analysis software allow the coach to observe even the smallest detail in your putting stroke, which the naked eye can not see…
“I am extremely proud of our Academy and assume that we will soon all together will witness the enhanced level of our putt-Dutch top golfers”, says Robert-Jan Derksen.
