Francesco Molinari is heading towards a new elimination on the Pga Tour of golf. In Texas, the second round (as well as the first) of the Houston Open was suspended due to the arrival of darkness with the blue in great difficulty.
After fourteen holes played (out of a total of 18), the Piedmontese is on the total "+5" and the cut line is four strokes away. A miracle is needed for the Turinese, author so far in a lap characterized by a "+3", thanks to a birdie, two bogeys and a double bogey.
Francesco Molinari, Houston Open
At the Memorial Park Golf Course (par 70) the new leader is the American Martin Trainer who, with a score of 130 (65 65, -10) strokes, precedes compatriot Kevin Tway in the standings, second with 131 (-9).
Third, with a good chance of taking the lead, is Jason Kokrak. The 36-year-old American is on the "-8" with still seven holes of the second round to be completed. Among the big names in the race he is fifth with 134 (-6) Scottie Scheffler.
In Texas, after the one arrived in Mexico at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, which dropped him out of the Top 200 of the world ranking, a new elimination is looming for Molinari. 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.
