Lucas Bjerregaard heads into the final day four shots off the lead and 136th in the Race to Dubai Rankings in Partnership with Rolex. A winner here in 2017, the Dane needs a good couple of weeks to make sure he keeps his playing privileges, but he would rather settle the matter on Sunday.
Lucas Bjerregaard, statements
“This week and next week, it’s all about the result,” he said. “I haven’t played well these last three days, it’s not been pretty or fairway-green all the time but I don’t really care. I just have to get the job done. It doesn’t matter where I hit it, I just have to hit it better next time. It’s all about the result. It’s all on me. No one else is going to get me over the line. I’m going to go out and try and win this thing, that’ll take care of everything.”
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.
