LIV Golf's Joaquin Niemann wants to play in big golf tournaments like The Masters. He recently won the Australian Open, which helped him get into the Open Championship and join the DP World Tour. Even though he's also the captain in the LIV Golf League, he can still play in events like the Dubai Desert Classic. If he can get back into the top 50 in the world rankings by the end of March, he might get a chance to play in The Masters again.

Niemann is motivated to secure his spot at the Masters. He is ready to give his best to secure his place at the Masters. In addition, Joaquin is firmly convinced that if he succeeds in his intention, he has the potential to reach the very end and potentially win the tournament.

“Obviously my goal is to get to the Masters. I’m one of a few of the players on LIV that don’t have a spot in the Majors. I know I want to be there.

I know I want to play in those four events and I know if I play there, I have a chance to win. My goal for now is to get there.”- Joaquin Niemann said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com

Niemann is talking about the debate in LIV Golf regarding ranking points. While he used to think it was unfair, now he says he's not bothered by it. Niemann explains that he knew there wouldn't be rankings when he joined LIV Golf, and instead of getting upset about it, he's focused on proving how good he is by trying to play in big tournaments like the Majors.

The fact is that Niemann has always been a golfer who thought he could achieve much more than he currently does. In addition, he realized that he cannot influence some things and that it is necessary to accept things as they are. This is the mentality he has had since the first day of his career. Such a mentality helps him to progress and become a winner.

He says it doesn't make him frustrated because he knew what he signed up for in LIV Golf. Even though the world rankings may not show it, Niemann believes he deserves to be in the Majors. He's confident that if he played more often in events with world rankings, he would make it to the Majors. Despite this, he accepts the current situation and is determined to show off his skills in tournaments.
