Billy Horschel is named Golfer of the Month

Billy Horschel named Golfer of the Month for September after his thrilling win at the BMW PGA Championship in the third Rolex Series event of the 2021 season. The American trailed by two shots heading into the final round across the famed West Course at Wentworth Golf Club but a bogey free seven-under-par 65 catapulted him to the top of the leaderboard with a birdie at the last hole to win by a single shot.

This win was Horschel’s first in the Rolex Series and took him to second in the Race to Dubai Rankings.

In second place was Nicolai Højgaard after his first European Tour victory at the DS Automobiles Italian Open.

In a close fought battle at the 2023 Ryder Cup venue, Højgaard lead by a shot heading into round four in what became and immense battle with Tommy Fleetwood in Rome where both men settled for even par final rounds.

Astonishingly this win made in back-to-back wins for the Højgaard’s as his twin brother, Rasmus won the week prior at the OMEGA European Masters. Rounding off the voting was Kristoffer Broberg of Sweden. Broberg, who had been in the golfing wilderness for nearly 5 years and on a medical extension in 2020 after a horrific run of injuries since his win in China back in 2015.

Having almost quite the game until a final surgery he won the Dutch Open highlighted by a third round 61 to set up a career changing win. 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.
