The first swings of some children in the home of the Ryder Cup 2023.

A day of sport and smiles at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Guidonia Montecelio (Rome), where the second event of 2021 of the “Road to Rome 2023” took place, the march towards the challenge between Europe and the USA which between less than two years will be played, for the first time in its history, in Italy.

Road to Rome 2023, the second event

The Open day organized by Federgolf did not miss the show in the Biagiotti family club, where the protagonists were the families who colored a truly “green” day with enthusiasm and passion. Which was staged in the presence, among others, of Gian Paolo Montali, general manager of the Ryder Cup 2023 project.

While among the Pro-Am competitors there was also Giuseppe Incocciati, a great golf enthusiast. The former footballer, among others, of Milan, Atalanta and Naples made the first swings in the 80s alongside Marco Van Basten and Daniele Massaro. For a love that has never stopped and continues, even today. But at the Marco Simone Gof & Country Club the show was double and for everyone. The Pro-Am was also attended by a team of disabled golfers led by Tommaso Perrino, the first Paralympic to have played the Italian Open in 2020 (an experience also repeated last September in the home of the Ryder Cup 2023).

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.
