Less than two hours later, Niemann entered the field to confirm his 72-stroke record on par70. Director Andy Pazder, in charge of PGA Tour tournaments awaits.

“Come over here. We need to talk. Listen, Joaquin. You’re a professional golfer, but you don’t respect this sport or the Tour Championship. You’ve been in this arena for a long time and you know you’re going to be fined $10,000, right?”, Pazder’s face was serious with a round of reprimands to Niemann. “Oh, I’m kidding,” he laughed after a moment of anger to tease the Chilean golfer.

He only wore one glove, five tees, no rain umbrellas and other little things that are often used in combat,” Matthews said. told in an amused voice.

On the 10th hole, Niemann had the intention to break Na’s record, after finishing the first half in 60 minutes with a round score of +2 – double bogey on hole 8. “I was frantic in the latter part, but the result was fine”, Niemann statement on Golf Channel.
