Even a month off from LPGA Tour competition can’t slow Minjee Lee. She has three top-5 finishes in her last four starts, including the maiden major title of her career at the Amundi Evian Championship. The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G is her first event since the AIG Women’s Open on August 22, but Lee has picked up right where she left off.
Minjee Lee, statements
“I really, really needed that month off. Two weeks felt like two days pretty much, so I didn't touch a club for 15 days. Practiced the last two weeks and then came here. Coming into the tournament after a month off, I'm feeling pretty fresh and just wanted to post a couple good scores.
I have great host housing here, so really love coming back. The hospitality and fans are always great. I think that really makes the tournament special and I really like coming back" 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.
