"Tiger Woods' son Charlie is far more talented than I was at his age. I am sure that if he continues on this path, we will soon see him play on big stages." Jon Rahm, number 1 in men's golf, thus enhances the talent of Charlie Woods who, following in the footsteps of his champion father, has left even the big names in the sport enchanted.
For the second consecutive year, alongside the 15-time Major champion, in Florida and at the NCP Championship, he has given strokes and prowess. So much so that the Spaniard Rahm, leader of the world ranking, also left speechless.
Jon Rahm, statements
"I would like - explained the Basque champion - to experience, in the future with my son Kepa, the sensations Tiger felt playing alongside him" 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.
