Sebastian Munoz, The RSM Classic
Munoz, 28, from Bogotà, recorded the best lap of his career on the top US circuit, also equaling the record of the Seaside Course (par 70), one of the two courses – together with the Plantation Course (par 72) – of the Sea Island race Resort. It was since the Travelers Championship 2020 that a player hadn’t scored a 60 (-10) in the first round of a PGA Tour event. Which immediately gave emotions. The Canadian Corey Conners, sixth with ‘-8’ (together with the American Russell Henley and the Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas), in the first nine holes played has made six birdies (of which five consecutive from 5 to 9) of eight total. Not a brilliant start for Robert Streb. Reigning champion, he is 55 / o with ‘-4’.
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.
