In Switzerland, on the Crans-sur-Sierre GC course (par 70), Francesco Molinari made a good comeback who went from 111 / a to 22 / a square with 136 (-4) signing, together with four other players, the best score (-6) of the day. Five birdies and a bogey for Paratore, seven birdies and a bogey for Chicco Molinari, thus canceling the bad test offered in the opening round. Halfway through the race, in the European Tour tournament, Guido Migliozzi is 32 / o with 137 (-3) ahead of Nino Bertasio in the ranking, 46 / o with 138 (-2) ahead of Andrea Pavan and the amateur Pietro Bovari , both 60 / i with 139 (-1), the last useful score to play the final phase of the competition. Among the Azzurri they did not pass the cut, 123 / i with 145 (+5), Lorenzo Gagli (second in 2019, the tournament in 2020 was not played for Covid) and Francesco Laporta.

Out also Edoardo Molinari, 144 / o with 149 (+9). Burmester leads, the English Andy Sullivan and the Belgian Thomas Detry – second with 130 (-10) – chase. Then, at the top of the table there is Paratore. A good omen, also in view of the Italian Open scheduled from 2 to 5 September at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Guidonia Montecelio (Rome), theater of the Ryder Cup 2023.

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.
