Jamie Donaldson, three eagles in one round

Jamie DonaldsonĀ carded three eagles in a single round for just the second time in his European Tour career on day two of theĀ 2021 BMW PGA Championship.

Jamie Donaldson, statements

“It’s crazy, golf, sometimes. Started off quite slow. Bogeyed the first and had two great up-and-downs on the third and fourth. Could have been easily three over after four then managed to find momentum. To have three eagles in a round, you never know what’s coming in golf. You have to keep grinding and pushing and suddenly you’ve made three eagles and shot 66 and it’s just crazy. I’ve struggled to make three in a year, to be honest, never mind three in 12 holes or whatever it was. Yeah, it’s crazy.”

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.
