Joaquín Niemann leads Latino hopes in the PGA Championship

Chilean Joaquín Niemann is the best placed Latin American after two rounds played in the PGA Championship.

March tied for 12th place, after turns of -1 and par respectively. Nothing was easy for the young trans-Andean on this Friday. He made a double bogey, two bogeys and four birdies. Niemann is already part of the golf elite. It seems incredible that in such a short time he has achieved so much. He already has a triumph on the PGA Tour, the 2019 Greenbrier Classic. You have to be aware that he is only 22 years old and that he turned professional three ago, in 2018. There are high expectations in Niemann, who is clearly the best player in Chilean golf of all time.

Mexican Abraham Ancer made a pair in the second round and at +2 he is tied for 32nd place. Ancer is a great player and his quality will surely lead him to a triumph very soon, which for now is elusive. Just two weeks ago he was second to a single hit to Rory McIlroy at the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow.

His compatriot Carlos Ortíz adds a total of +3 and is in position 39.

Argentine Emiliano Grillo made a very good lap of 72 strokes (even) and left on the edge of the qualifying cut with a total of +5, tied for 63rd place. Despite his poor start to the first round (+5), Grillo seems to be on the right track with his game.

Outside was the Colombian Sebastián Muñoz who added a total of +7 with laps of 77 (+5) and 74 (+2).
