The comeback success at the Open de France, in Guyancourt, also made Guido Migliozzi fly in the rankings regarding the Ryder Cup of 2023 in Rome. The Vicenza player in the European Points List has risen by 13 positions. He is now third behind only Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry.
The first three of the European Points List, as well as those of the World Points List (where Migliozzi is fifth), will win a place by right in the Europe team. Luke Donald will therefore complete the roster with the six wild cards at his disposal.
The qualifiers will end on September 3, 2023. The dream of making his Ryder Cup debut and making it to Marco Simone for Migliozzi is therefore closer but there is still a long way to go. Meanwhile, the victory of the Mile has found more than deserved space in the Italian press.
There are three interviews published in as many newspapers where the man from Vicenza talks about his victory at Le Golf National inside and out. From each there are some passages to tell. To Matteo Dore of La Gazzetta dello Sport who asks him to relive that great shot at hole 18 he explains “having reviewed the videos where the English commentators say that the right thing was to put the ball in the center of the green and then close in par.
But I like to take risks (…). Certain hits come to you when the game allows you to. I believe that in golf you can do anything but only when all your strings are well… in tune ”. From the columns of the National Daily, Migliozzi tells Andrea Ronchi how the passion for golf was born among the many sports practiced as a child.
"I have always been competitive, looking for rivals at the height in all sports. What struck me about golf is that the comparison is with oneself. The other players are there too, but to progress you have to improve tournament after tournament by overcoming your fears and insecurities ”.
Given the day he got his third victory on the Tour, someone jokes about a hypothetical future in politics for the 25-year-old from Vicenza. It is Christian Mainetti of Il Corriere dello Sport who relaunches the social idea of a Migliozzi Prime Minister right after that shot at the 18.
"Ah, I Prime Minister tell us no. As for that blow, it is simply indescribable. I wasn't thinking about the need to do something extraordinary to win the tournament. I was just focused on the gesture and it turned out a beautiful thing.
Yes, golf has given me so much on Sunday .. To the Corriere del Veneto the gloss. "In a year's time the Ryder Cup will be played in Italy, do you have it in your sights?" asks Luca Aquino: “Ryder is a dream.
From the Wentworth tournament - replies Migliozzi - two weeks ago, something clicked because it was the first race in which points were counted for Ryder. From there I told myself to reset everything and play at my best ”.
