Debacle of the Azzurri in Mexico. Guido Migliozzi (69 74) and Francesco Molinari (72 71) both left the scene, and with the same score (143, +1), from the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, a Pga Tour golf tournament. In Playa del Carmen Migliozzi from Vicenza fails to repeat the test under the par offered in the first lap and in the second, with a partial of 74 (+3) with four bogeys and only one birdie, he is eliminated. Same fate for Chicco Molinari, too fluctuating. Five birdies and five bogeys for the Piedmontese who now risks coming out of the Top 200 of the world ranking (he was 197 / o on the eve of the competition).
Matthew Wolff, World Wide Technology Championship
On the El Camaleon Golf Club course (par 71), the American Matthew Wolff with a score of 129 (61 68, -13) remained alone at the top of the standings. Two laps from the end he boasts two shots ahead of compatriot Scottie Scheffler, 2 / o with 131 (-11) and among the protagonists of the last Ryder Cup in Wisconsin where he defeated, in the single, Jon Rahm (world number 1) . While in 3 / a position with 132 (-10) are the Norwegian Viktor Hovland (reigning champion) and the Mexican Carlos Ortiz (in search of home glory). There are ten players in 5th place (133, -9), including Justin Thomas (world number 7 and favorite on the eve), Sergio Garcia and Billy Horschel. Excellent eliminations for Will Zalatoris (second last April at The Masters) and champions Major Shane Lowry and Brooks Koepka. Out also the Australian Lucas Herbert (he had just returned from the Bermuda Championship success).
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.
