Joaquin Niemann opens his counter in Australia, Alexander Levy 8th

Joaquin Niemann was imperial from start to finish this Sunday. As a result, the Chilean returned a good 66 (five coming back, six birdies including a bogey). However, 25-year-old Rikuya Hoshino joined Kong at the top of the leaderboard. At the end of the moving day, the Japanese struggled on the outside leg (one birdie, two bogeys), before reversing the situation on the return (two new birdies, including a spectacular one at 17) to sign a score of 70 and ensure a play-off.

Eagle confirming a historic victory

In this little game, the native of Santiago excelled. Joaquin Niemann, who had already finished the par 5 18th in three shots during his first pass, was unfazed when checking for an eagle at the second, while the rain made its appearance and his opponent was satisfied with two birdies. Winding up at LIV GC’s captain DP took his first career win on the World Tour.

“It was a good day. These two play-off holes showed how I played the last few weeks in Australia. My putting wasn’t great, but I worked hard on it and the last putt was good. I always practice to make three, four and five foot putts. I do, and I know one of those will win me a match. It’s incredible.”He became only the second Chilean golfer to win on the European Circuit and the first South American to register his name on this ISPS HANDA Australian Open winners list.

Min Woo Lee lost his double century

The third step on the podium (total -12) is occupied by Min Woo Lee. Taking the lead from Friday, Australia, having won last week, could not keep up the momentum to achieve the double. This Sunday, the 25-year-old was not at his best and posted a score of 72 (two bogeys, one birdie). A trio shares 4th place (-11). It features Grant Forrest, Larry Cantor and Adam Scott. Only Lucas Herbert finished 7th (-10).

Levy climbs into the top 10

Eight golfers then follow in 8th place (-9 total). The team was notably formed by Alex Fitzpatrick, Ryo Hisatsune, Adrian Meronk and Alexander Levy. The Frenchman finished the fourth round superbly, finishing in 67 strokes (seven birdies, three bogeys), making a nice surge up the rankings and above all a fine top 10 finish. By contrast, his compatriot Pierre Pinault had a more complicated day. Indeed, the 24-year-old fired a card of 80 (five bogeys, two double bogeys) to finish in 63rd place (+5 total).
