Francesco Molinari, World Wide Technology Championship
On the course of the El Camaleon Golf Club, Viktor Hovland will defend the title won last December when the Norwegian managed to overtake the American Aaron Wise in the photo finish.
Among the favorites on the eve are the Americans Justin Thomas (number 7 in the world), Tony Finau (tenth in the world ranking), Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris. The Mexicans Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz dream of a home business.
Chance also for the Spaniard Sergio Garcia, the Irish Shane Lowry, the Chilean Joaquin Niemann and the naturalized Slovak Rory Sabbatini (silver medal at the Tokyo Games). 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.
