Bernd Wiesberger, statements

“I have never felt quite like it on a golf course before. i’ve been in a situation where I was playing for tournaments but everybody says this is bigger and it already feels that way. That was really, really hard. It’s been a lifelong goal for me to be part of a European team and I’m very proud to have just done enough to get into that team and go to Whistling Straits in a couple of weeks. I’m going to probably need a couple of days off but I’m going to be as ready as I can for the captain and the team and I’m really looking forward. It’s a big relief and it’s an unbelievable week to be part of the European team. In 2018 in France, I was doing Sky Germany (television coverage) because I had an operation on my arm and it inspired me a lot to be part of this team”.

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.
