Joost Luiten got the better of Chris Wood in a final-day battle to win his sixth European Tour title at the inaugural NBO Oman Open.

Luiten the man in Oman

Al Mouj Golf has played host to some dramatic scenes on the Challenge Tour, hosting the season-ending NBO Golf Classic Grand Final, and did not disappoint on its European Tour debut.
Perfect conditions greeted the players for the fourth day in a row, with Luiten going out in the final group and holding a share of the overnight lead.
There were ten players within four shots of the lead as the final group reached the turn but it evolved into a shootout between Luiten and Wood on the back nine, with the experienced duo going toe-to-toe in the desert.
It was the Dutchman who prevailed, carding a 68 to get to 16 under and finish two shots ahead of his English rival.
Frenchman, Julien Guerrier, finished third at 13 under after a 71, two shots clear of Spaniard, Jorge Campiilo, Frenchman Alexander Levy and American, Han Seung-su.
The victory is Luiten’s first since he won his home event for the second time at the KLM Open in 2016 and moves him into the top ten of the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex, earning him a spot in the WGC - Mexico Championship.
