1 – Luiten’s first-ever albatross – and first of The 2014 Race to Dubai – came on the 560-yard 10th hole

248 – The yardage of Luiten’s incredible strike, completed with a 4 iron

12 – The amount of holes that Irish holidaymaker Pat Cashman caddied for Padraig Harrington after his regular looper Ronan Flood took ill on the 6th hole
