Johannes showed great improvement in 2020 post lockdown, with a 4th place finish in Cyprus, 8th in Portugal and 10th at Valderrama. He is a big hitter, averaging 312 yards in 2020. Between 2016-2018, he played on the Asian Tour, with one win at the 2016 Taifong Open.
The American won the Czech Masters in August 2021, only a couple of weeks after he found out he was due to become a father. The Nappy Factor once again having a positive effect on a player.
Johannes and his partner are expecting their first child early in 2022. Look out for a 2nd European Tour win around the start of the year.
Pressure Performance Analysis
We only have limited European Tour evidence to go on so far, so we have set his GBC Pressure Performance Rating to ⭐⭐⭐.
✅ Trailed by two shots with 18 holes to go at the Czech Masters. A final round 68 saw him win by two shots.
❌ Began the final round of the Irish Open one shot behind Lucas Herbert, shot 71 to finish 4 shots behind Herbert. Was joint leader with Herbert after 14 holes but played his last two holes in +2. An improvement on Kenya but still fell short.
❌ Began the final round of the Kenya Open 2 shots behind Justin Harding. Shot 73 to finish 9 shots off the lead in 16th place. Very poor.
➖ Finished 4th at final round of the Cyprus Showdown where the last 16 all started at level par. A slow start stopped him from having a chance.
Events to back Veerman
Keep an eye on Johannes when the DP World Tour is in Asia in April. Given his experience of playing the Asian Tour earlier in his career, he'll be comfortable over there.
2021 Irish Open
"It's all about understanding yourself and knowing that I can play in the final group and I can play in the final group when it's raining and playing along with Lucas who is a great player. Just what I take away from this is that my game is good enough to play there and I think I'm good enough to play there and overall it's a great week."
"I’ve been practising really hard over the last six or seven months and I’ve been getting better. To come out and start 2020 playing like this gives me a lot of confidence."
