Justin Thomas e Bubba Watson, new caddie

Sliding doors on the PGA Tour between caddies who leave and others who return. Justin Thomas, number six in world golf, has announced the start of a collaboration with Jim ‘Bones’ Mackay, for 25 years alongside Phil Mickelson and, since 2017, reporter on the course for Nbc Sports and GolfChannel.

Not only Justin Thomas

While the relationship between Bubba Watson and Ted Scott is interrupted after 15 years. Together they have won, among other trophies, The Masters twice, in 2012 and 2014. Now their paths have separated despite the esteem between the two remains intact.

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.
