The seventh edition of the Tulip Golf Challenge, played at the Drentsche Golf & Country Club, is also a prey to two top talents from the Netherlands in 2022. On the second day of competition, the 18-year-old course record of Joost Luiten was also shot out of the books.

Among the boys, Scott Woltering of the Hilversumsche Golf & Country Club already took a shot at victory on the second day after a round in 68 strokes (-4). This put him four strokes ahead of local hero Michel van Zijl. During the final round his victory was never in danger, partly because van Zijl needed three strokes more than Woltering on the first nine. The latter eventually crowned himself the winner with rounds 73-68-77, four strokes ahead of runner-up Jonathan Scholten (75-74-73) and Kian de Roo (82-66-74).

Only fourteen-year-old Kian de Roo, a member of the Drentsche, managed to record no fewer than nine birdies on Saturday. Although he also made a bogey and a double bogey, with a round in 66 strokes (-6) he improved the course record set by Joost Luiten in 2004. A unique achievement.

Among the girls, the eventual winner also took a wide lead during the second round after two rounds well under par. Lynn van der Sluis of UGC de Pan has been in form all year and has won twice on the Global Junior Golf Tour. Also in Assen she proved too strong for her competition with an overall score of -6 after rounds in 68, 69 and 73 strokes. With no fewer than five strokes ahead of Germany's Sophie Böhlhoff, she registered her third international title of the season.

The youth tournament in Assen, now characteristically called the 'Tulip' by everyone, is starting to become a fixture on the golf calendar of Dutch golf talents. Players like Kiet van der Weele, Koen Kouwenaar and Anne Sterre den Dunnen managed to win previous editions and then broke through permanently as top amateurs.
