Torque captain Joaquin Niemann bagged his second win of the 2024 LIV Golf season with a four-shot victory in Saudi Arabia.

Niemann finished LIV Jeddah on 17-under after a final round 4-under 66 and added another trophy to his cabinet after clinching the season opener at Mayakoba.

Speaking after his round, Niemann said: "It's probably my best moment, the best I've ever played before. I just want it to keep going in the same direction. "I want to feel, and I want to think I'm the best all the time. I think that's the only way to be confident and play good golf."

As for the team event, Crushers GC staged an epic comeback to claim the title, overhauling an 11-shot deficit as they headed into the final round. They shot a combined score of 20-under, eight shots better than any other team on Sunday. The monumental effort was enough to secure a four-shot win over second place Stinger GC.

Team captain Bryson DeChambeau shot his team's lowest score of 8-under 62. Speaking afterwards he said: "It was just a top priority for us to play our best, and this obviously showed today.

"Especially in these types of conditions, when it's really windy, we do pretty well. We just hold our head high. I don't know what else to say."

Teammate Anirban Lahiri added: "Shooting 20-under on any golf course is a big deal, and to do it on a course like this on such a windy day is actually, I think, one of the best Sunday team performances that you'll see for a while."

After two rounds of 6-over, Wild Card Anthony Kim shot his best round of the week on Sunday, carding a four-over 74. It wasn't enough, however, to lift him off last place on the leaderboard.

Speaking after his final round on Sunday, Kim was optimistic about the rest of the season: "I'm very encouraged. I'm excited about what's coming. My game is starting to shape up. I'm doing things that I used to do before. I'm just looking forward to a great year

“I definitely played a lot better than the score actually showed. I felt more comfortable today than I did the first two days. I shot 4-over par, but it could have been an under-par round if I had just cleaned up a few things.

“Unfortunately, it's still taking me a couple holes to get comfortable. I think most of my over-par scores are the first six holes. If I can just figure a way to get my mind right before I get out there, I think I'll be in great shape."
