Jorge Campillo: “I am just swinging it better”

Jorge Campillo will be looking to use all his experience as he goes for European Tour win number three on home soil at the 2021 Mallorca Golf Open. The home favourite had to wait 229 events to claim his first win at the Trophée Hassan II in 2019 and since then has gone on to add the 2020 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters to his trophy cabinet. A third round 64 at Golf Santa Ponsa left him two shots behind leader Jeff Winther, with the Dane holding his first 54 hole lead as he looks for his first European Tour win, and Campillo is hoping his experience will stand him in good stead.

Jorge Campillo, statements

“It took a while for me to win one time, so I guess I have more experience than the leader right now. It will be a hard day tomorrow. You’ve just got to play well and do your best to win. I’m hitting the ball with the middle of the club now and I guess (with) a little draw on the ball it’s going a little further Maybe in the last few months I’ve been hitting it a little further, I don’t know why. I don’t know what it is, I haven’t been working out too much so maybe I’m just swinging it better.”

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.
