Collin Morikawa named “Golfer of the Month”

Collin Morikawa has been named Golfer of the Month of November after winning the season ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and crowned European Number One.

The reigning Open champion had destiny in his own hands with a win on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates all but guaranteeing him to become the first American to win the Race to Dubai. Three rounds of steady play left the 24-year-old trailing four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy by three shots on Sunday morning, but a bogey-free final round 66 gave him the Dubai double and a maiden Rolex Series victory in the United Arab Emirates.

J.B Hansen of Denmark was second in the voting following his win at the AVIV Dubai Championship. The Dane opened with a stunning 63 and never looked back, trailing just once all week, and delivered a bogey-free 68 on Sunday to give him a one stroke victory at 24 under-par in what was a low scoring week in Dubai.

Rounding off the voting was Thomas Pieters who claimed his fifth Tour title at the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course. The Belgian got off to a slow start on Sunday with a bogey at the opening hole before going on to eagle the par five fifth and eventually win by two shots.

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.
