LIV Golf Chicago: Joaquín Niemann returns to the home stretch after a start of doubt

In his second event for the Saudi super league, the Chilean started the tournament with an under par on his card. Tomorrow, he will find the grounds at 2:15 p.m. in the countryside.

Joaquín Niemann has embarked on his second trip to a LIV golf tournament. It’s the Chicago date, the last in the United States before landing in a small section in Asia and the Middle East, which works as a preview of the last event on the calendar, which takes place in Miami.

That’s why the Chilean wanted to add good scores and start securing his presence among the stellar groups of the annual list, despite the fact that he missed half of the tournaments because he was still in the PGA.

The problem was that the event that takes place in Rich Harvest Farm didn’t have the best Niemann to start with . The Talagan man struggled especially in the first nine holes and it wasn’t until the home stretch that he pulled off a comeback that saw him climb up the leaderboard and sign a daily one-under card. the by.

Figures that place him in the top 20 of the tournament after Friday, but still far from the top, which was in -9 thanks to a beastly first round from Dustin Johnson winner of the tournament played in Boston on September 4.

If we analyze his day, the rise in level throughout the holes is obvious. Niemann started the first hole, along with Dustin Johnson and Anirban Lahiri, bringing together the three players who made the playoffs in Boston. But despite the fact that a birdie was scored at the second flag, he suffered penalties at five, nine and eleven, leaving him very difficult in the table.

The positive thing is that after these complex holes, he was able to come back and get back into competition. Discount on 12, 14 and 15 ultimately being an under-par shot in the overall draw.

Niemann could not be the protagonist, but in any case he was in a good position to fight for the top ten and why not, give the surprise at the end of the actions on Sunday. This Saturday everything starts at 2:15 p.m. in Chile, with the departure of Joaco for a new day of his new tour. Chicago is waiting for the best version of the best golfer in the country’s history and the man from Talagan hopes to return the gesture.
