In Crans Montana Renato Paratore fails the feat and closes the Omega European Masters in seventh place with 271 (-9) alongside Guido Migliozzi, protagonist of a good comeback in the final round. In Switzerland the title goes to the Danish Rasmus Hojgaard who, with a total of 267 (68 66 70 63, -13) shots takes advantage of the final collapse of the Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, second with 268 (-12) and whose dreams of glory are over in the water at 18.
A double bogey on the last hole of the day "condemned" the 35-year-old from Vienna and gave his third career success on the European Tour to Hojgaard, an emerging talent in continental golf.

Two Azzurri in the Top 10 on the Crans-sur-Sierre GC course (par 70).
And if Paratore (65 66 69 71) can complain (he closed the moving day at the top of the standings), Migliozzi (67 70 69 65) can certainly be satisfied with a final round underlined by a partial of 65 (-5) that the 'saw a rise from 27th position.

A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty. This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship).
A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the "secret weapon" of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.
"He's a good guy, he's been through a lot as a sportsman and he's the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I'm not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period.
". These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed 'the Baltimore Shark', important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. "The mental aspect is something I've worked on a lot with him lately.
I'm really lucky to have him around. Besides, he's a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value." This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
