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

Niemann posted a six-under 65 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to finish in a tie for 10th place.
Niemann had quite the final round, carding an eagle and seven birdies to a bogey and a double-bogey. The young Chilean made an impressive four eagles this week at the TPC Deere Run. He ranked top-15 in SG: Off-the-tee, SG: Putting, FIR's, and putts per GIR. After a slow start to the season, this last month Niemann has caught fire. He has finished T5-T5-T23-T10 the last four weeks. Niemann will look to take the momentum across the pond when he competes in the Open Championship.
