Los Angeles (USA) – The American Dustin Johnson was proclaimed this Sunday champion of the Saudi LIV Boston tournament by winning the tiebreaker over the Chilean Joaquín Niemann, who has just joined this controversial circuit of golf, and the Indian Anirban Lahiri.
After three rounds, Johnson, Niemann and Lahiri finished tied with a -15 in total and played for the title in the tiebreaker, where the American signed a spectacular eagle that gave him victory.
The American Talor Gooch, who closed the second day at the top of the classification, deflated on the last day and finished two shots from the top three.
Cameron Smith, the highest-ranked player in the world (2) competing in an LIV tournament, finished his run in Boston at -14, one stroke off the top three.
The Mexican Abraham Ancer finished with -11 in total, the Spaniard Sergio García achieved a -10, the Mexican Carlos Ortiz finished with -4 and the Spaniard Eugenio López Chacarra concluded with -2.
With significant economic incentives for its players, LIV Golf, promoted by Saudi Arabia, aspires to organize a circuit that rivals the PGA Tour in quality and prestige, and its controversial emergence has caused the world of golf to be divided into two between the supporters of one and another tour.
