Joaquin Niemann from Tiger Woods to a chip

The talented 23-year-old Chilean Joaquin Niemann, winner of Tiger Woods' Genesis Invitational in February, has pulled off a magic move that you can watch on repeat without getting tired of it. For fans of ASMR videos, it's pure happiness.

With his ball stuck below the green and a flag close to the entrance, it was hard to see how the Chilean Joaquin Niemann would manage to stop his ball close to the hole.

Joaquin Niemann, results

Rather than a traditional chip, we bet more on a tight ball in the mound which would have slowed down by hitting it, even a "flop shot" of which Mickelson has the secret, but the 23-year-old player is a hyper gifted capable exceptional blows.

The proof with this fantastic wedge shot executed to perfection to print maximum spin and make the ball suddenly stop on the green. Joaquín Niemann is a Chilean professional golfer. He was the number one ranked amateur golfer from May 2017 to April 2018.

He is currently a member of the PGA Tour, where he has claimed two wins. Niemann was the number one ranked golfer in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 44 weeks, from May 2017 to April 2018, when he turned professional. Niemann planned to play at the University of South Florida, but he was unable to gain entry due to his TOEFL scores.

Niemann won the 2017 Mark H. McCormack Medal for being the top-ranked player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking at the conclusion of the summer's championship season, thus gaining entry into the 2018 U.S. Open and into the 2018 Open Championship.

He won the 2018 Latin America Amateur Championship gaining entry also into the 2018 Masters Tournament. Niemann forfeited those exemptions to the 2018 U.S. Open and Open Championship to turn professional before the 2018 Valero Texas Open, where he finished 6th in his first tournament as a professional golfer.

He earned Special Temporary Member Status on the PGA Tour for the rest of 2018 with a T6 finish at the Memorial Tournament, his third top-ten in only five starts on tour. He earned a PGA Tour card for the 2018–19 season, after a fourth top-10 finish (T5 at The Greenbrier) in eight tournaments.

Niemann joins Jordan Spieth (2013) and Jon Rahm (2016) as golfers who were able to completely bypass the Tour Finals and earn PGA Tour cards after starting the season without any status.
