Joaquin Niemann
20-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Priority Category No. 21 states that if a non-member in a season equals the number of points by the No. 125th-ranked golfer from the previous season, he gets a card for the next season. Niemann did that, so he has a card for 2018-19 and he potentially will have a significant impact. The still-not-20-year-old Chilean sensation played 13 tournaments, 12 as a pro after missing the cut at the Masters, and notched four top-10s and six top-25s. Only 36 guys had more top-10s, and Niemann had the same number as Rickie Fowler, Francesco Molinari, Brandt Snedeker and Ian Poulter, among others. Let's talk stats: Niemann ranked second in greens in regulation, 12th in strokes gained: off the tee, fifth in strokes gained: approach and 15th in both strokes gained: tee-to-green and total. That, gamers, is the real deal. He needs to work on his putting, which was middle of the road, and his scrambling, which was horrible. Niemann earned a little more than $1.2 million, which would've placed him 101st on the money list. But remember, he played only half a season. Double it and he'd have finished about 44th in earnings. And then if you think he can get better in his first full season on Tour, then maybe we're talking about top-30 and the Tour Championship for Niemann. Read Past Outlooks
T37 at Innisbrook
March 25, 2019
Niemann placed in a tie for 37th after shooting a final round of two-over 73 on Sunday at the Valspar Championship.
ANALYSIS
Niemann made an eagle to go along with four bogeys in a disappointing final round. He lost strokes both around and on the greens, but ranked 16th in SG: Approach and 22nd in SG: Tee-to-green. Niemann has now made the cut in his last four starts, but has not finished inside the top-35 in any of those starts. He will be teeing it up next week at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship.
