Jon Rahm, ranking
Chapter blues: the best is always Guido Migliozzi who goes from 92nd to 95th place with 1.6030.
But the Vicenza player will be called, starting from the DP World Tour Championship (last act of the European Tour 2021 scheduled in Dubai from 18 to 21 November), to return to play at excellent levels in order not to come out of the Top 100.
The second place at the Dubai Championship, Francesco Laporta is in 160th position (1.0543). Fifty-one those recovered by the Apulian (he was 211th last week), who thus overtook Francesco Molinari, from 203rd to 212th after the forfeit (four holes from the end of the second round) at the Houston Open.
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.
