BMW Championship: Niemann is still in a state of grace and will reach the last round fighting for the title

That of Talagante has had another great day and is embarking on the fight for the second championship of these playoffs. On the other hand, Mito Pereira got his best lap of the week, but couldn’t get out of the bottom.

Another day of the BMW Championship with Joaquín Niemann as the protagonist. The man from Talagan once again demonstrated his class and remained candidate for the trophy of the second tournament of these playoffs of the PGA. On the other hand, Mito Pereira could not leave the bottom of the table and his presence in the TOUR Championship is practically excluded.

Opposing realities that have been a tonic in the week. Niemann and Mito arrived in Delaware in different situations, but with the same objective: to have a good week, to ensure their presence in the final tournament of the season and why not, to fight for the title on Sunday.

And the two-time PGA winner has achieved all of those goals. After three rounds, he’s in contention for the trophy and highly placed on the annual FedEx Cup roster, which is why Saturday’s session was nothing more than a confirmation of his big moment. Not even starting with a bogey stopped him and he barely took the punishment, he came back with consecutive birdies on holes three and four.

After this section he found calm for a few flags, until on the tenth hole he discounted again. With that, he regained momentum and added another throw-in on the fourteenth, ensuring a day pass of -3 which added to his first two good rounds, leaves him with an accumulation of eight under par and very high in the table.

In this way, the 23-year-old golfer will start Sunday with one of the tournament’s best 15 cards on stars like Jon Rahm (-5), Hideki Matsyuma (-5) and Justin Thomas (+1).

Mito Pereira, on the other hand, had his best day of the tournament, but that’s not why he was able to get out of the bottom of the BMW. That of Pirque had a complex week in the event which brings together the 70 best golfers of the season, maintaining a card of four over par.

In the third round he finished with -1 , managing to overcome the demands of the terrain for the first time. Specifically, he had four birdies and three bogeys, a busy Saturday for the Chilean. Despite the fact that he still has 18 holes left to improve his position, it seems very far (if not impossible) that he can obtain a place in the top 30 of the year and be able to participate in the TOUR Championship.
