Luiten became the first Dutch winner of his country's national open since Maarten Lafeber in 2003. He's the first Dutchman to win twice in a season on the European Tour.

Jimenez made four early birdies to take the lead. But Luiten rallied on the back nine at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club, with both making par on the 18th to force the playoff.

The players returned to the 18th tee and Luiten made par, while Jimenez hit his drive into the rough right of the fairway. He left his second on the fringe and could not finish in two.
