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
Pulls away for six shot victory
September 15, 2019
Niemann fired a six-under 64 on Sunday at the Military Tribute at The Greenbrier to take home his first career PGA Tour victory.
Niemann began the final round with a two shot lead. He got through the first nine holes in just one-under, but birdied six holes on the back-nine to cruise to a six shot victory. Niemann becomes just the third international player to win on the PGA Tour before his 21st birthday. The putter is what did most of the damage, as Niemann topped the field in SG: Putting. He showed promise two seasons ago, but failed to take the leap last season. Niemann doesn't have to worry about that narrative starting out the 2019-20 season with a victory. He will look to stay hot in the fall and will tee it up next week at the Sanderson Farms Championship.
