Race to Dubai winners Tommy Fleetwood and Martin Kaymer will join defending champion Antoine Rozner and World Number 27 Paul Casey as a strong international field assembles at the AVIV Dubai Championship, the penultimate event on the 2021 Race to Dubai season.
Tommy Fleetwood, statements
Fleetwood, a five-time European Tour winner, said: “I’m excited to tee it up at the AVIV Dubai Championship and to play the Fire course for the first time competitively. Dubai is the perfect destination for golf, especially this time of year when you can enjoy the warm weather and the world-class facilities on offer.
We are lucky to be playing back-to-back weeks on two fantastic courses at Jumeirah Golf Estates, so I can’t wait to get back out there”. The US$1.5 million tournament, preceding the final Rolex Series event of 2021, the DP World Tour Championship which will bring the curtain down on this year’s Race to Dubai on the neighbouring Earth course, is title sponsored by AVIV Clinics, the healthcare partner of DP World, which provides unique, personalised medical programmes to enhance the aging process by improving cognitive and physical performance in healthy aging adults.
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.
