He narrowly missed out on a two-shot lead when his eagle putt lipped out at the 18th and he settled for a birdie.

“It could have been better but you know, I won’t be too picky!”

“I have been struggling a bit with my game, so it was great to see the score today and for some reason I just love playing in front of the home crowd.

“I got off to a fast start and I kept it going, seven under is a good day in these conditions.

“It was tough in the afternoon, the wind was blowing, there were some tricky holes into the wind so anything under par would have been a good score I think in the afternoon, but I was three or four under after six so you adjust what you want to make and I think seven under is good.”

“I really went down that last hole trying to make a birdie to lead on my own and that is always cool.”

Luiten has previously won the event twice in 2013 and 2016 when it was known as the KLM Open.

Englishman Eddie Pepperell and Dane Rasmus Højgaard are tied in second place at 6-under.

Behind them at 5-under Finland’s Mikko Korhonen, France’s Victor Perez, Italy’s Andrea Pavan and Germany’s Marcel Schneider share fourth place.
