Niemann shoots 59 on the first day of the LIV golf season opener 1st place, 5 strokes behind


Joaquin Niemann (Chile) took the sole lead by hitting 59 in the first round of the LIV Golf Mayakoba (total prize money of $20 million), the opening game of the 2024 LIV Golf season.

Niemann hit 12 under par 59 with 10 birdies and an eagle in the first round on the first day of the tournament held at El Camaleon Golf Course (par 71, 7,056 yards) in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on the 3rd (Korean time).

Niemann, who entered LIV Golf in September 2022, has yet to win a LIV tournament, and his best results are two third places.

Niemann, who started the game at the 2nd hole (par 4), made birdies in 5 consecutive holes from the 3rd to the 7th hole, and also reduced one stroke on the 9th and 10th holes.

Niemann, who gained momentum with an eagle on the 11th hole (par 4), went on to reduce his score by 3 strokes and finished the first round with a good score of 59 strokes.

This is the second time that a score in the 50s has been achieved in the LIV golf tournament launched in 2022, after Bryson DeChambeau (USA) hit 58 at the West Virginia tournament in August last year.

At the time, DeChambeau recorded 12 under par 58 on a par 70 course.

Patrick Reed (USA) took second place, 5 strokes behind Niemann, with 7 under par 64 strokes.

Sergio Garcia (Spain) starts the second round with a 6-under par 65 and in sole 3rd place.

Jon Lam (Spain), who transferred to LIV Golf ahead of this season, had an easy LIV Golf debut with 7 birdies and 2 bogeys, 5 under par 66 strokes, and a tie for 4th place.

Korean player Kevin Na (USA) tied for 18th place with 1 under par 70 strokes, and Danny Lee (New Zealand) tied for 26th place with even par 71 strokes. 토토사이트 순위
