Mallorca Golf Open with three italians golfers

After the ACCIONA Open de España and the Estrella Damm Andalucía Masters, the European Tour remains in Spain with the Mallorca Golf Open, scheduled from 21 to 24 October on the Golf Santa Ponsa course, in the Balearic Islands.

On the field Renato Paratore, Nino Bertasio and Lorenzo Gagli. The three Azzurri will challenge, among others, the German Martin Kaymer (former world number one), the Belgian Thomas Pieters (four victories on the European Tour) and numerous Spaniards, including Adri Arnaus and Jorge Campillo (both took part at the Tokyo Olympic Games), Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño and Alvaro Quiros, two veterans who will try to retrace the footsteps of two Iberian golf legends such as Severiano Ballesteros and Miguel Ángel Jiménez, already victorious at Golf Santa Ponsa.

The European Tour enters the final rush. After the Spanish triptych, the calendar includes the Portugal Masters (4-7 November) and the double appointment in Dubai with the Dubai Championship (11-14 November) and with the DP World Tour Championship (18-21 November), the Rolex race Series with a prize pool of 9,000,000 dollars that will bring the curtain down on the 2021 season.

In the Balearic Islands the Mallorca Golf Open (which is giving away one million euros as prize money) represents an important stage for Bertasio (15th in the Estrella Damm Andalucía Masters) and Paratore looking to move up in the Race to Dubai, while Gagli aims to give continuity to his results after passing the cut in the last two races in Spain.

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.
