International Victories (7)
Phenomenal start to the European Tour season, with eight top-15 finishes in his first nine starts. Began the season with matching T5 finishes at the Alfred Dunhill Championship and Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. Later added top-10 finishes at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (T8) and True Thailand Classic (sixth). Came close to notching his fifth European Tour victory (and first since the 2014 ISPS Handa Wales Open) with back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Real Club Valderrama Open de España and Shenzhen International, finishing one stroke behind Andrew Johnston and two strokes behind Soomin Lee, respectively. Later added his seventh and eighth top-10 finishes of the season, with a T6 effort at the Lyoness Open and T9 at the French Open. Delighted the hometown fans by picking up his fifth European Tour victory, closing with a course-record tying 63 to make up a three-stroke deficit to win the KLM Open by three strokes over Bernd Wiesberger. The 63 equaled the best closing score by a winner this season joining Henrik Stenson (Open Championship) and Charl Schwartzel (Tshwane Open). At 19-under 265, became the first Dutch player to win the event twice (2013) since it joined the European Tour schedule in 1972. During that stretch, joined KLM Open multiple winners Seve Ballesteros, Bob Byman, Graham Marsh, Bernhard Langer, Stephen Leaney and Simon Dyson. Luiten and Wiesberger went toe-to-toe during the final round, but birdies on three of his final holes propelled Luiten to the winner's circle in the midst of a stellar season – now including nine top-10 finishes (the most on Tour). His fifth European Tour win came in his 201st start.
Made his first U.S. Open cut in only his second appearance in the event, finishing T39 at Chambers Bay after opening 68-69 and T5 through 36 holes.
Played in nine PGA TOUR events, including appearances in all four major championships and his first PLAYERS Championship. Also added a solo 26th at the PGA Championship and a T26 at the Masters Tournament. On the European Tour, finished 11th on the final Race to Dubai standings. Won on that circuit for a second consecutive season.
Qualified for his first World Golf Championships event and T63 at the Bridgestone Invitational in early August.
Made his PGA TOUR debut, at the Memorial Tournament. Was disqualified following the first round after signing an incorrect scorecard.
Played in 27 European Tour events, missed only two cuts and enjoyed six top-10 finishes. Finished 28th in the Race to Dubai. His top showing was a runner-up showing at the Portugal Masters, where he tied with Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Robert Karlsson and Francesco Molinari, two strokes behind winner Richard Green. Was third at the Castello Masters, fifth at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, sixth at the Open de Andalucia de Golf and the Joburg Open and ninth at the 3 Irish Open.
Had seven European Tour starts, with his T17 at the Austrian Golf Open his best finish.
In 16 European Tour starts, counted two top 10s—a T5 at the Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open and a solo fourth at the Alfred Dunhill Championship.
