Mathias Eggenberger is still alone in the lead

In Sutri (Viterbo) the Alps Open National Golf rises with shots and, 18 holes from the end, the Swiss Mathias Eggenberger with a score of 136 (68 68, -8) shots remains alone in the lead of the classification and takes off in the against direct pursuers.

Mathias Eggenberger, the Alps Open National Golf

The Swiss at the National Golf of Sutri (par 72) has in fact four strokes ahead of the Azzurri Jacopo Vecchi Fossa (climbed from eleventh position), Nicola Maestroni (among the four leaders after the first round) and Alessandro Tadini, second with 140 (-4) like the Irish David Carey and the French Julien Sale.

In the Top 10 two other Italian players, Carlo Casalegno - 7 / o with 141 (-3) together with the transalpine amateur Paul Margolis - and Stefano Pitoni, 9 / o with 142 (-2) as another French amateur, Tom Vaillant. In the home of Italian golf, in the penultimate tournament of the Italian Pro Tour and the Alps Tour 2021, a great reaction for Vecchi Fossa.

Third in the order of merit of the Alps Tour, the third European circuit, the 27-year-old from Modena is now one step away from winning the "card" to play, in 2022, on the Challenge Tour. 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.
