Joaquin Niemann first became known to the golfing public when he became the #1-ranked amateur in the world. He turned professional in April 2018 and as a 19-year-old finished 6th in the Valero Texas Open in his professional debut. He finished in the top 10 in four of his first eight starts on the PGA Tour, securing his playing rights for the following season. To the surprise of no one, he became a winner on the Tour when he captured the 2019 Military Tribute at the Greenbrier. Two more opportunities to win fell by the wayside in 2021 when he lost playoffs, but recently won the Genesis Open at storied Riviera Country Club in California for his second victory. Niemann, from Chile, has the pedigree and talent to make a splash for years to come. He played on the international side at the Presidents Cup in 2019 and will be a mainstay on that squad for a long time. Majors and other important victories in the future would surprise no one. And if you see Niemann in contention, be sure that he will not fold and other players will have to play their best to knock him off.
