Niemann makes history

Joaquin Niemann fired a closing-round 6-under-par 64 on Sunday to capture The Greenbrier by six strokes and become the first Chilean to win on the US PGA Tour. The 20-year-old Niemann roared home with three straight birdies on his final three holes, capping it off with a 25-foot bomb on 18 at the Old White TPC course in Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. He is the youngest non-American winner on the Tour since 1923 and the first third-round leader to hold on and win this event. Niemann finished with a 21-under 259 total, six shots ahead of American Tom Hoge, who fired a 65. Brian Harman, Harris English, Nate Lashley and Richy Werenski finished in a tie for third at 14-under.
