Joaquin Niemann Feeling Right At Home At Greenbrier

Chilean phenom Joaquin Niemann is only 19 years old, but his game wouldn't suggest so. Niemann fired 7-birdies yesterday finishing round one with a score of 63. 

As an amateur last year, Niemann shot a final round 64, so although he doesn't have much experience, he is certainly showing that he belongs on tour. Niemann started his round off quickly yesterday, making 6 birdies throughout the first 10 holes.

“Playing on the PGA Tour with these guys is awesome. I thought I was going to be in college this year,” Niemann said. “I was 6 under after 10. After that I thought I was going really low. My game was feeling really good, and my putter was good. So all my game was good today.” 

 

 

At one point ranked as the #1 amateur in the world, Niemann won the Latin American Amateur this year, and played in the Master's as an amateur. He turned pro in April after earning a T6 spot at the Valero Open in Texas. 

Niemann only needed 5 starts to earn special temporary membership and he is now allowed tor accept unlimited sponsor's exemptions for the rest of the season. 

With three top-10's to date, Niemann is proving he deserves his PGA Tour card. If he were to do so for the upcoming season, he would become the third player in the last 10 years to receive their PGA Tour card without going through Q-school or the Web.com Tour (Jordan Spieth and Jon Rahm).  

Niemann tee's off at 12:20 today, and look for him to start up again right from where he left off.
