Joaquin Niemann Biography – Joaquin Niemann Wiki

Joaquin Niemann is a Chilean professional golfer. He became the first player from Chile to win on the PGA TOUR after winning his maiden PGA TOUR title at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier on September 15, 2019. Joaquin was the number one ranked golfer in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 44 weeks, from May 2017 to April 2018, when he turned professional.

Joaquin was recruited by coach Steve Bradley, who already had his friend and fellow Chilean Claudio Correa on the roster at the University of South Florida, but did not attend after failing to gain entry due to his TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores.

Joaquin won the 2017 Mark H. McCormack Medal for being the top-ranked player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking at the conclusion of the summer’s championship season, thus gaining entry into the 2018 U.S. Open and into the 2018 Open Championship. He won the 2018 Latin America Amateur Championship gaining entry also into the 2018 Masters Tournament.

Joaquin forfeited those exemptions to the 2018 U.S. Open and Open Championship to turn professional before the 2018 Valero Texas Open, where he finished 6th in his first tournament as a professional golfer. He earned Special Temporary Member Status on the PGA Tour for the rest of 2018 with a T6 finish at the Memorial Tournament, his third top-ten in only five starts on tour.

He earned a PGA Tour card for the 2018–19 season, after a fourth top-10 finish (T5 at The Greenbrier) in eight tournaments. He joined Jordan Spieth (2013) and Jon Rahm (2016) as golfers who were able to completely bypass the Web.com Tour Finals and earn PGA Tour cards after starting the season without any status.

In September 2019, Joaquin won his first PGA Tour victory at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. He became the first PGA Tour winner from Chile, and the youngest international PGA Tour winner since 1923. He has played in two PGA TOUR playoffs. In January 2021, he lost to Harris English at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and in July 2021, he lost to Troy Merritt and Cam Davis at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Davis was the eventual winner. On February 20, 2022, he won his second PGA Tour title at the Genesis Invitational after finishing two strokes above Americans Collin Morikawa, and Cameron Young at Riviera Golf Course.
