Green light from the PGA Tour. The big names in world golf will be able to play the Saudi International, the Asian Tour tournament (one of the flagship events of the new “green” Superlega), without incurring suspensions by the top American circuit. From Dustin Johnson to Phil Mickelson, from Bryson DeChambeau to Sergio Garcia. These and many more are the champions who, from February 3 to 6, on the course of the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club in King Abdullah Economic City, will compete for a total prize money of $ 5,000,000.
Saudi International, situation
Ok from the PGA Tour, then. But under certain conditions. In the same days of February, in fact, the top American circuit will be the protagonist in Pebble Beach, California, with the AT&T Pebble Beach. Which at this point will lose many players expected in the field. Those of these who have already played the AT&T at least once in the last five years, will have to commit to doing it again, choosing between the 2022 or 2023 edition. While those who have never participated in the competition will be “forced” to play it twice times between 2023 and 2025. A sort of compromise that offered by the PGA Tour, with the big names in golf who will be on the pitch at Saudi International.
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.
