'Excited' Niemann wins 1st LIV Golf title in playoff

Feb 05, 2024 by ESPN

Key Facts

  • Niemann won his first LIV Golf title two days after opening with a 12-under 59 -- and after having 2 penalty strokes tacked onto his second-round score Sunday morning for taking incorrect relief on a drop from a cart path on the 13th hole.
  • Niemann had putts to win on the par-4 18th in regulation and again on the first two extra trips down the hole, then survived on the third playoff hole when Garcia missed a 10-foot birdie try.
  • Rather than finish Monday, Niemann and Garcia decided to play a fourth extra hole in the fading light, and Garcia gave Niemann a big opening when he left his approach from the fairway well right in deep rough.
  • "I was more excited than anything to start the season, to start playing on LIV and start playing for my teammates," Niemann said.
