Joaquin Niemann is one of the game's rising stars and has already secured multiple PGA Tour titles since earning his card in 2018-19. His biggest win, to date, came at the 2022 Genesis Invitational, where he shot four stunning rounds at Riviera to secure the tournament that is hosted by Tiger Woods.

Throughout his young career, he has had his girlfriend, Christina Hellema Puga, by his side. Get to know her a little better here.

Who Is Joaquin Niemann's Girlfriend?

Although we are uncertain how long Niemann has dated his girlfriend, Christina Hellema Puga for, we do know that she is also a fellow native of Chile and regularly travels to Niemann's tournaments.

Born on the 18th October 1997, it has been reported that Hellema Puga has three other siblings, two sisters and a brother and graduated from Colegio The International School in La Serena in 2015.

She then moved to the Universidad del Desarrollo in Concepción, where she studied architecture. Hellema Puga also has an Instagram specifically for her passion of architecture and has other interests in photography and art.

Despite being active on social media, and often travelling with Niemann to golf tournaments, it appears the couple keep quite a low profile off the course as there are very few pictures of them together at events.

For example, they both went to the dinner before the Presidents Cup began in 2019 and yet the only pictures available of them together are on their social media accounts.

Along with the Presidents Cup, Hellema Puga was present for Niemann's victory at the 2022 Genesis Invitational, and was pictured celebrating with her partner as he walked off the 18th green.
