It was an exciting weekend in the golf events around the world. Let us dive into what happened in the Genesis Invitational Classic. Also, we are going to take a look at the schedule for the upcoming competition. Here is our CDB Highlights #15.
Joaquin Niemann raised the trophy after emerging victorious in the Genesis Invitational. The Chilean faced a field that consisted of each of the world’s top-10 golfers.
Niemann started the tournament with back-to-back 63s and built enough of a lead to be able to play it safe on Sunday with an even-par 71 to win the tournament by two strokes over a hard-charging Collin Morikawa.
Just as it happened last week in the WM Phoenix Open, where the rookie Sahith Theegala dazzle the crowd, this time turn was for the rookie Cameron Young. The 24-year-old golfer was near the top of the leaderboard all weekend and finished at 17 under par.
Now the pros head to the east for the Florida swing, starting with this weekend’s Honda Classic at PGA National. Matt Jones is the defending champion, as the Australian won last year’s event by five strokes. Also, the favorite is Sungjae Im and the second choice is Daniel Berger.
