US Team, from the Ryder to Presidents Cup

Us Team at the Presidents Cup on Sept. 20-25 at Charlotte’s Quail Hollow. A familiar venue will be a welcome sight for the home team after its close call at Royal Melbourne in 2019. Davis Love III, a UNC alum, will lead the U.S. Team after captaining the 2012 and 2016 Ryder Cup teams.

Us Team, Presidents Cup

There will be new selection criteria for Love’s squad. Only six players will earn automatic spots. The captain will get to choose half the team. U.S. players have been earning points since fall 2019, but points are tripled this season, which means there’s still plenty of moves to be made in the standings.

Trevor Immelman will assume the International captaincy after a successful stint by his countryman, Ernie Els. While the International Team didn’t win in 2019, Immelman will be seeking to continue the positive momentum from the previous Presidents Cup.

Immelman has his own ties to Quail Hollow. He was runner-up in the 2006 Wells Fargo Championship, a finish that he said helped him to take a “big step” in his career. He won the Masters the following year.

Immelman’s close friend, fellow South African Rich Davies, lives on the course, as well. Davies was a kicker at Clemson in the 1980s, and through him Immelman has become a fan of the Tigers and friends with coach Dabo Swinney.

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.
