Brian Gay rejected due to overbooked plane

From Japan the PGA Tour of golf moves to Bermuda for the Butterfield Bermuda Championship, scheduled from Friday to Sunday at Southampton Parish. Where there is expectation for Guido Migliozzi. The only blue in the race, the Vicenza player returns to play on the top American circuit four months after the last time. Majors aside (fourth place in his debut at the US Open and elimination at the cut at The Open), Migliozzi on the PGA Tour obtained, last June, a 13th place at the Travelers Championship. And on the greens of the Port Royal Golf Course he will be chasing a prestigious result in an event that is giving away a prize pool of $ 6,500,000.

Brian Gay, situation

The American Brian Gay will defend the title won in 2020 (at the playoff and after a fast that lasted over seven years), who will arrive in Bermuda only in these hours after being rejected on a flight departing from Charlotte due to an overbooked plane and considered too heavy. It was Gay himself and his wife Kimberly who paid for it. Among the favorites for the title also the American Patrick Reed, the British Matthew Fitzpatrick (returning after a week off following the success on the European Tour in the Andalucia Masters in Spain) and Danny Willett, the Chilean Mito Pereira, the Canadian Adam Hadwin and the South Africans Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Garrick Higgo.

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.
