Jeff Winther, first title on the European Tour

First career title on the European Tour for Jeff Winther who in the Balearics won the Mallorca Golf Open with a total of 265 (62 71 62 70, -15) strokes. A bogey on the 72nd regulation hole (the 18th of the day) could cost the Dane dearly but the Spaniards Pep Angels and Jorge Campillo, as well as the Swede Sebastian Soderberg – all second with 266, -14 – did not take advantage. And so the 33-year-old from Gladsaxe, in the lead after the first and third laps, managed to cross the finish line first. Thus returning to success eight years after the last (of three) exploits in the Nordic Golf League.

Jeff Winther, European Tour

In Spain, on the course of the Golf Santa Ponsa (par 70), the best of the Azzurri was Renato Paratore. The Roman came close to the Top 10 closing the tournament in eleventh position with a score of 271 (68 71 64 68, -9) ahead of Nino Bertasio from Brescia, 20 / o with 274 (-6). Four birdies in the first eleven holes for Paratore who then tainted his game with two bogeys at 12 and 16. With this result Winther gains 47 positions in the Race to Dubai (the order of merit of the circuit) and is now 37 / o. Bertasio also advanced, from 115 / o to 111 / o, as did Paratore, from 128 / o to 124 / o.

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.
