Antoine Rozner: “I’ve been playing very solid”

Antoine Rozner continued his brilliant record on the Fire Course as he started the defence of his AVIV Dubai Championship title with a bogey free 65. The Frenchman won his maiden European Tour trophy here just under 12 months ago and has since added another in the Middle East at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. He is 32 under for five rounds over the Fire Course having never shot over 70, and admits the layout suits him perfectly.

“I just think every shot suits my eye here but you’ve still got to play well,” he said. “My last few rounds including last year and my practice round this week, I’ve been playing really solid out here. That’s the key, just play well and if you can hole a few puts like I did today, it’s going to be a low one, so I’m just very happy with my round. I know I’ve played well here in the past so that gives me a bit of confidence but at the end you just start over.  I’ve played well these last few weeks, my ball striking has been good and on this course that’s key.  I’m in good form and maybe being back here brings the good vibes in me and I’m just aggressive out here so it’s been good.”

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.
