WITB - Joaquin Niemann flushes his PING irons en route to victory

Joaquin Niemann Witb

Joaquin Niemann claimed his second PGA Tour title courtesy of some sublime iron-play at the Riviera Country Club.

The Chilean went wire-to-wire at the Genesis Invitational, finishing two shots clear of the chasing pack. Across the four rounds it was Niemann’s iron game that shone brightest, ranking first in Strokes Gained: Approach using his PING iBlades.

The 23-year-old also showcased his magical touch from short range, ranking second in Strokes Gained: Around the Green with his PING Glide Forged Pro wedges.

Unlike most of his fellow PING staff pros, Niemann does not use one of the brand’s latest G425 drivers, instead opting to stick with the previous generation G410 LST model. He does, however, carry two G425 fairway woods.

• The G425 drivers are 'dependable and brilliant'

Rounding out his set-up are a Prototype PING PLD and the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball.
