Niemann grabs lead at Tournament of Champions

Thomas was one under after 10 holes but made his move by rolling in a 10-footer at the 11th and making three birdies in a four-hole stretch from the 13th, with the 2017 champion closing his blemish-free card with a close-range gain at the last.

With this being said, despite triumphing at selected tournaments throughout the 2019 calendar year, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka and the Open Champion Shane Lowry will not compete having failed to commit.

The PGA Tour has announced a contract extension has been struck with business insurance organisation Sentry, the title sponsor of the Tour's Tournament of Champions.

Niemann, victor of The Greenbrier in September, followed a 30-foot birdie at the fourth with a two-putt gain at the next and then picked up shots at the seventh and ninth to reach the turn in 32.

The young Chilean's wave comes just a few weeks after his debut in the global competition at Royal Melbourne in Australia, where Ernie Els's team narrowly lost to a powerful USA team led by Tiger Woods.

The plan for separation has the backing of church leaders who are LGBTQ supportive as well as those who are not. Methodist churches will opt to leave and be part of the new denomination.

"I think the Presidents Cup was huge for me, for my career, for my future", he said. "It was an unbelievable week", Niemann told reporters. It just gave me a lot of confidence that I can beat them if I play well.

"I think during that week I learned a lot, I was with the best players in the world, I was team-mates with Adam Scott".

Thomas also went without a bogie and ended up with a birdie on the 18th to approach.

Joacim Niemann is the early leader on 7 under par 66 and he leads by one shot from Justin Thomas with Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler a shot further back.

Thursday's opening lap offered ideal goal conditions, but that can change quickly as the forecast for the last three rounds will include rain showers and strong winds that could reach up to 64 km / h.
