Joachim had an outstanding 2020 as he won for the first time on the European Tour at the Joburg Open. His win came in a year where he celebrated his 30th birthday and he also had the Nappy Factor going for him as he became a father for the second time in early 2020.
In 2021, he then won the end of season event - the AVIV Dubai Championship - along with four other top 5's to climb to his highest ever end of season ranking at 108th in the world.
He's a multiple winner on the Challenge Tour (2 wins in 2018) and now he is a multiple winner on the European Tour, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him add further wins to his resume. However, he needs to eradicate the odd moment of madness. At the 2019 Open de France he ran up a quintuple bogey 9 during his second round (he lost by a shot) and during the Alfred Dunhill Championship in 2020 he ran up a quadruple bogey when leading during the third round to end his chances.
Joachim became a father for the second time in early 2020 and also turned 30 in August 2020.
Pressure Performance Analysis
Joachim is a bit of a mixed bag but with two wins now he must be respected. However, his lack of concentration at times can cost him and his Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at ⭐⭐⭐.
❌ Trailed by 6 shots (in 5th place) at the Stein City Championship. Shot 71 (His worst score of the week) to finish 7 shots back
✅ Began the final round of the AVIV Dubai Championship tied for the lead. Shot 68 to win by one.
❌ Started the final round of the Qatar Masters 3 shots behind Darren Fichardt. Shot 72 to finish 5 shots behind Antoine Rozner in 9th.
❌ Going for back to back wins, Joachim led through 10 holes of the 3rd round at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. A quadruple bogey on his 11th hole of that round was enough to end his chances.
✅ Joachim entered the final round one shot behind Wilco Nienaber. Joachim shot a bogey free 68 to win by two shots. Impressive under pressure.
❌ Three shots behind going into final round at the BMW PGA, shot a disappointing 72 and was never really in contention.
➖ Trailed by 5 at the Open de France with 18 holes to go. Shot a final round 68 but lost out by one. Notable that he was the leader standing on the 17th tee but made a double bogey.
❌ Joachim was as low as 6/4 to win the Oman Open at one point after playing his opening 6 holes in 2 under par. Finished poorly, playing his final 12 holes in three over par to miss out by two shots.
✅ Joachim was impressive when winning twice on the Challenge Tour. Even his three runner up finishes were the result of others posting excellent final rounds.
Joachim is a player who you must keep onside the following week if he posts a good finish. A run of 15-11-17 led to his win in 2021 which he followed with a 9th. In 2018 there were two occasions he followed up a runner up spot with a win on his next start. In 2019 he had a run of three tournaments where he went 4-25-2. In 2020, on his first start after his win at the Joburg Open, he led at the Alfred Dunhill Championship during the third round before a costly 8 set him back.
Events to back Hansen
Loves golf in this part of the world and 9th here in 2021 despite poor form.
Abu Dhabi Championship
A new venue at Yas Links should suit his eye. Form at the Scandanavian Masters and Scottish Open over the years suggest he could enjoy the test.
0-1. Joachim has only been in one playoff. He made a bogey at the second hole of the Swedish Challenge in 2018 to lose out to Oliver Wilson.
2020 Joburg Open
"It's quite emotional. This is what we work for, you know? The family watching back home."
