Matthew Fitzpatrick: "It's on golfer's wish list"

Matthew Fitzpatrick, on his first outing after defeating team Europe in the Ryder Cup, took his seventh European Tour title by winning the Andalucia Masters. The 27-year-old Briton was three strokes behind before lap four, but with an impressive final round of 69 on the Valderrama course it allowed him to prevail ahead of Australian Lee Min-Woo and Swede Sebastian Soederberg.

Disappointment for the Italian Renato Paratore, who from fourth place has fallen far behind in the standings with a lap of 75, while the best of the Italians is Nino Bertasio, who closes 15 / o, in par.

Matthew Fitzpatrick, statements

"It is on a golfer's wish list to win the tournament at Valderrama with the history it has," said Fitzpatrick after his success on the course where Europe triumphed in the 1997 Ryder Cup.

Doing it without bogey is really special. happy. The English trio formed by Laurie Canter, leader on the eve, James Morrison and Robert Rock, as well as the Swedish Alexander Bjork, the New Zealander Ryan Fox, the American David Lipsky and the Paraguayan Fabrizio Zanotti all closed 2 under par.

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.
