Billy Horschel: “Big goal is the Race to Dubai”

Billy Horschel is looking to take another step towards becoming the first American to win the Race to Dubai at the 2021 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Billy Horschel, statements

“The big goal for me is to win the Race to Dubai, be the first American to do that. That’s a special thing to do as it was being the first American to win a Rolex Series event and being the second American to win at Wentworth, the BMW PGA. It’s been a nice few weeks to accomplish some of those things that may not have been goals but you find out that you’re in elite company, a rare air with some people. So hopefully I can play well this week and then obviously it’s going to come down to that week in Dubai, who plays the best out of some of those guys at the top.”

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.
