The Chilean worked blow by blow to defend his card in the WGC Workday Championship and stay in the 20th place of the contest that has been marked by the concern generated by the car accident of Tiger Woods.
Niemann started badly, from hole 10, with a bogey. It was the anticipation of a very demanding afternoon, on a difficult field. Although the track conditions were better than on the previous day, the complication of the flags demanded the best of each of the participants of the tournament, the first of the four World Cups that take place per season, which brings together the best players of the world, plus those winners in different places, such as the European, Asian and Japanese tours.
There is no cut here. That is why it was important to enter the weekend as well positioned as possible. The talagantino never went on a brilliant streak, but He had the strength to rehab himself from unkind outings and the traps he fell into. To the three bogeys (flags 10, 18 and 5) that he committed, he opposed four birdies (12, 17, and 3), which allowed him to close the round with a total record of -3 (tied with the court for day). Result that for now allows him to be eight strokes from the leader of the tournament, the American Brooks Koepka.
A spectacular approach shot to the green on hole 8, which almost turned into an eagle, could have been his most comforting moment of the round, as it allowed him to finish the day with -1. However, he failed in his birdie attempt on a ball that seemed served.
The Chilean will continue his participation in the WGC Workday Championship, at a time to be defined.
