Camino de Santiago for GlobalGolf4Cancer

He will walk part of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela to introduce 'GlobalGolf4Cancer', a cancer awareness campaign, with a set of golf clubs, irons and flags. This is the initiative undertaken by Nick Edmund, a great lover of the 'green' who, for 15 years, has worked with Nick Faldo on golf projects.

GlobalGolf4Cancer, the project

Today suffering from cancer, despite four operations and a no longer young age, the Irishman does not give up and is willing to make every sacrifice to enhance a noble initiative. At the Real Golf Club of San Sebastián, alongside Josè Maria Olazabal, two-time winner of The Masters, he started his 'walking golf route'

An itinerary that will also pass through several Spanish golf courses, where Edmund will symbolically play a hole receiving the support of champions 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.
