Bryce Easton and Niklas Lemke both carded the lowest rounds of their European Tour careers at the 2021 Mallorca Golf Open as they look for a big finish to the Race to Dubai. The top 123 on the Race to Dubai Rankings in Partnership with Rolex after the AVIV Dubai Championship will secure their playing privileges for 2022 but both Easton and Lemke are on the outside looking in with three events remaining to gain points. The South African had two top tens in his first five events but has split his time between the European and Challenge Tours and arrived at Golf Santa Ponsa 195th in the Rankings. A chip-in on the 13th ignited his opening round and he shared the lead before making his only bogey of the day on the eighth in a 63.
Bryce Easton, statements
“It’s the same every week, you’re always trying to stay patient, stick to your routines and process. Some guys will make a lot of putts and you’ve got to get the feeling that a few guys will get a bit frustrated on the greens. So you’ve got to keep hanging in there, give yourself as many looks as you can and hope that a few fall. You’ve got 72 holes, I don’t necessarily feel like you’ve got to get off to a flier. You obviously can’t be over par to try to win this week but it’s the same thing, be patient over four days and aim for four good rounds. One good round is one day, we all know there are 72 holes to be played.”
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.
