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.
He's a multiple winner on the Challenge Tour (2 wins in 2018) and now he has won 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
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. He's a proven winner at Challenge Tour level now.
Joachim took his time to win at European Tour level and is expected to win again. However, his lack of concentration at times can cost him and his Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at 3 stars.
Joachim is a player who you must keep onside the following week if he posts a good finish. 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.
Major and WGC Analysis
Joachim has yet to play in a Major. He's comfortable in wind so The Open is likely to be the Major that suits him best.
Yet to play any.
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."
