The Chilean Golfer Joaquín Niemann touched the glory this sunday in the Sentry Tournament of Champions, by staying with the second place of the PGA Tour contest that took place in Hawaii, in the United States.
With a solid presentation in the last round of the tournament, the Spaniard stayed for a good part of the day in the lead of the classification, which led him to go to a tiebreaker against local Harris English, who finally got the crown.
During the course of the day, Niemann registered a -9 card, while at the closing of the contest matched Harris with -25, which led both to define the title in a single hole.
In that instance, the national athlete missed a good start with an erratic second hit, leaving a couple in his favor. This was taken advantage of by the American, who with a birdie ended up rising victorious.
Despite the defeat, Niemann will be able to climb several positions in the ranking from the PGA thanks to the runner-up, where he is currently ranked 45th.
We’re heading to a playoff. Niemann vs. English.
