Nino Bertasio lost the leadership in Portugal

In Vilamoura the “moving day” of the Portugal Masters of golf does not smile on Nino Bertasio who loses the leadership and slips to 7 / o place with a total of 204 (61 69 74, -9) strokes. Partial of 74 (+3) for the Brescia player who makes only one birdie with four bogeys. And now the blue, in the European Tour tournament, is seven shots away from the Belgian Thomas Pieters and the French Matthieu Pavon, new leaders with 197 (-16).

Nino Bertasio, Portugal Masters

At the Dom Pedro Golf Course (par 71) the Apulian Francesco Laporta continues to gain ground, from 12 / o to 11 / o with 205 (-8). Fifty-first in the Race to Dubai (the order of merit of the circuit), the 31-year-old from Castellana Grotte (Bari) is chasing a prestigious result to enter the Top 50 of the “money list” of the European Tour which would mean winning a post in the field of the Dp World Tour Championship in Dubai (last act of the season scheduled from 18 to 21 November). Among the Azzurri, Edoardo Molinari from Turin is further behind, 28 / o with 209 (-4). And in Portugal the challenge for the title, one lap from the end, seems reserved for only two players: Pieters (four career successes on the European Tour, the last in 2019) and Pavon, with the transalpine chasing the first exploit (on the showcase two titles on the Alps Tour, the third European circuit, achieved in 2014 and 2015). The Danish Lucas Bjerregaard is also aiming to enter, 3 / o with 201 (-12).

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.
