The final sprint of the European Tour (which in 2022 will be replaced by the DP World Tour) 2021 begins. In the United Arab Emirates from Thursday 11 to Sunday 14 November the AVIV Dubai Championship will be staged, an event that precedes the DP World Tour Championship which , next week, will see the top 50 players in the order of merit of the circuit.
Antoine Rozner, AVIV Dubai Championship
The first act in Dubai will see five blues as protagonists: Guido Migliozzi (who returns to play on this circuit after the parenthesis on the PGA Tour), Francesco Laporta (second last year in the Golf in Dubai Championship, today AVIV Dubai Championship), Edoardo Molinari, Renato Paratore and Nino Bertasio. And if Migliozzi, twelfth in the “money list” of the European Tour is already certain of a place for the grand finale of the season, Laporta (46 / o) wants to take the pass to join the elite of the circuit. Good moment of form for the Apulian, fresh from 7 / o place in the Portugal Masters which saw Bertasio finish fifth. Edoardo Molinari is also chasing a prestigious result, 61 / o in the Race to Dubai. Paratore’s speech is different, as he has to climb positions to keep his card full to play, in 2022, on the DP World Tour.
The Frenchman Antoine Rozner will defend the title at the Jumeirah Golf Estates (Fire Course). From the British Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey to the South Africans Dean Burmester and Daniel Van Tonder. From the Austrian Bernd Wiesberger to the Spanish Rafa Cabrera Bello. These are some of the favorites of a review that is giving away 1,500,000 dollars.
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.
