In a thrilling playoff victory at LIV Mayakoba, Joaquin Niemann makes an immediate declaration about this win being a ‘major.’

Joaquin Niemann clinched a thrilling victory over Sergio Garcia in a four-hole playoff at LIV Mayakoba, marking his first win on the Saudi-backed circuit since joining in 2022. However, despite his success, Niemann expressed the bittersweet reality that he’s not currently qualified for all major championships. In a post-round interview, he shared his ambitious goal of winning majors but acknowledged the necessity of first securing a spot. Niemann’s earlier triumph at the Australian Open granted him entry to the 2024 Open Championship at Royal Troon. With a current Official World Golf Ranking of 66, he remains outside the direct qualification for the Masters and the U.S. Open.

Despite his achievements, Niemann faces challenges in securing a spot in these prestigious tournaments, with his Masters prospects particularly slim due to LIV Mayakoba being denied world-ranking points. Reflecting on his aspirations, Niemann emphasized the motivation gained from not being currently eligible for all majors, expressing a renewed focus and determination to earn his place among elite players. His recent success, including a remarkable 12-under 59 in the first round, has not only solidified his status in the golfing world but has fueled his drive to continue working hard and proving his capability on the global stage.
