The main national golfers did not perform well this Saturday and closed their participation in the American tournament far from the leaders.
Joaquín Niemann had a disappointing day this Saturday at LIV Golf in Chicago, after finishing yesterday in the expected sixth place in the American tournament.
The current best national representative of this sport closed his participation on Friday with a card of 67 moves (-4) only among the leaders at the time Sergio García, Jediah Morgan, Louis Oosthuizen, Anirban Lahiri and Juan Sebastián Muñoz.
However, today he had a day to forget that took him away from the title fight. In an announcement of what was to come, the Talagantino began with a bogey on the 1st hole, which he would repeat at flags 13 and 18. Moreover, on 6, he made another error with a triple bogey.
THE birds made in holes 4, 5, 7 and 14 were not enough to recover positions, the Chilean therefore finished in a disappointing place in the T26 of the North American competition with a total score of 139 strokes (-3) .
“Mito” isn’t having a good time either
For his part, the other competing national golfer – Guillermo Pereira – could not improve much after Friday’s poor performance.
“Mito” was in position T33 at the end of the first day with a score of 70 shots (-1), and this Saturday he closed his participation in T29 thanks to three birdies (flags 2, 4 and 7) and two bogeys (holes 9 and 14), finishing with 140 strokes (-2).
