Billy Horschel has a FedEx Cup win and a World Golf Championships title to his name but the American has revealed that a victory this week at the 2021 BMW PGA Championship would rank among the very biggest achievements in his golfing career.
Billy Horschel, statements
“There’s tournaments as pros that we want to win, the Players, the Majors, maybe a few others but as an American, you don’t usually say a tournament on the European Tour. To win the BMW PGA Championship would be equal to me as a Players Championship. When I first came over two years ago, I fell in love with the golf course, which I knew I would. The fans have been great to me. The support has been great this year, even knowing I have support for West Ham. It’s become one of those tournaments after two years ago that I wanted to win and so to get that victory tomorrow, if it happens, would be tremendous”.
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.
