Ryder Cup is guest of honor for Rome 2023

The enthusiasm and the smiles of the children. The wonders of the Eternal City in the background and the Ryder Cup trophy as guest of honor. The first event of 2021 of the "Road to Rome 2023" in Piazza di Siena, in the heart of Villa Borghese, has turned into a show.

For everyone. The march towards the Ryder Cup - which in two years, for the first time in Italy, will see Europe and the United States compete in the most important golf competition in the world - has experienced a new day of celebration.

With "Golf in Piazza", an event that has returned to the fore 24 months after the last time and exactly two years after the 44th edition of the Ryder Cup which will be played at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Guidonia Montecelio (Rome).

Ryder Cup, Rome 2023

Piazza di Siena, as in 2019, has once again transformed into a "green", where young and old alike performed in swing, also approaching the short and long game. All this also under the eyes of Franco Chimenti, president of the Italian Golf Federation, and Gian Paolo Montali, general manager of the Ryder Cup 2023 project.

With Rome confirmed, towards the Ryder Cup, more and more Capital of the green. 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.
