LIV Golf player Joaquin Niemann has raised the stakes ahead of The Masters by declaring it will be "more fun for them knowing PGA Tour players hate them" going into the first major of the season at famed Augusta National. 

Niemann will be one of 18 LIV Golf League players competing in the season's first major of the year next week and the Chilean is determined for LIV Golf to take the bragging rights when all is said and done. 

In an incredible interview with GOLF ahead of The Masters, Niemann is ready to go to war: 

"I really don't care if people like it [LIV Golf League] or not about us.
"I think it's going to be more fun for us knowing that they [PGA Tour] hate us. 
"Going to the majors and beat them."

GOLF then asked Niemann whether that's a motivating factor for him to do well at Augusta National next week.

Niemann replied: 

"Yeah, 100%. 
"I think since they gave us the notice that we're going to be able to play the majors I was like it's going to be so much fun to play just four weeks in the year against them [PGA Tour players] and try to beat them."

He then added:

"Between the [PGA] Tour and the LIV Tour, I think there's a lot of players that they don't know if they don't like us or they don't like the decision that we made. They don't share the same thoughts that we do about coming here or not, but everybody do their own decision and it's going to be fun after everything they've been talking about it and just play for it. It's going to be fun.
"It's obviously going to be an individual tournament, it's not going to be a team. But I know we're going to be feeling the different Tours at the same time playing for their Tour and for their team as well. I'm looking forward to it."

Niemann, who won twice on the PGA Tour, has played in The Masters three times. 

He missed the cut in 2018, finished T40 in 2021 and went five places better in 2022. 

Niemann was given a lowly ranking by us here at GolfMagic ahead of The Masters.
