Lucas Herbert, The Barracuda Championship
Final to forget for Guido Migliozzi. The only blue in the race, the Vicenza player slipped from 22 / a to 57 / a square with 283 (72 65 69 77, -1), thanks to a last round – characterized by bad weather, rain and strong wind – closed in 77 (+ 6) with one birdie and seven bogeys.
At the Port Royal Golf Course (par 71), Herbert is celebrating and after two successes on the European Tour (one in 2020 at the Omega Dubai Classic and the other last July at the Irish Open) finds his first joy on the PGA Tour and is preparing to enter the Top 50 of the world ranking.
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.
