The Chilean scored -11 on his card and was only behind American Talor Gooch (-12). The native of Talagante has established himself as one of the serious candidates to succeed in his first super league tournament.
Joaquín Niemann continues to demonstrate why LIV Golf signed him for $100m. The national golfer had a great day in the second round in Boston and climbed to the second position, prevailing in the fight for the tournament.
After an incredible first lap where he placed third in the competition, The Talagante native pulled off his best shots to reach second place and only be behind American Talor Gooch.
At 1:15 p.m. in our country, the competition consisting of 48 players began. Niemann started his round on the second hole, remaining tied until the fourth hole. Now, Chile’s finest moment would come after birdying back-to-back birdies. This led him to score six under par and climb to the No. 1 spot, a spot he watched out of the corner of his eye for the rest of the day.
With three straight pairs, the pressure would come from Gooch and Dustin Johnson, but Niemann would move up the leaderboard once again. The 23-year-old athlete birdied twice in a row, on the tenth and eleventh holes, once again leading the tournament with a -10 card, captivating spectators and participants.
Although soon the only punishment of the day would arrive. On the 14th he would give ground with a bogey, which meant losing the lead against the North Americans who continued to score 10 under par and, later, would discount one more.
Illusion in Boston
Hope would come at the end of the day. Team captain Torque GC birdied twice in a row, on holes 16 and 17, scoring -11 on his card and position itself again in first place in the company of the Americans. In the absence of a hole, everything was possible, but Gooch’s perseverance prevented the Chilean from returning home with the top spot in his hands.
In the absence of a round in Boston, Joachim Niemann (-11) edged Johnson (-10) to find himself a single shot below leader Talor Gooch (-12). Like yesterday, the national retired smiling, as he brought out all his qualities and greatly improved his performance. The results are positive for the last day of his first event at LIV Golf, where the man from Talagan is a firm candidate to win the tournament.
