Shane Lowry insisted he would keep fighting right to the end as the race for a place in Padraig Harrington’s Ryder Cup team was set for a thrilling conclusion at the 2021 BMW PGA Championship.
Shane Lowry, statements
“It’s been a stressful week but I’m proud of myself and the way I’ve handled it and played some good golf and put myself in position. I’ve been in big, high pressure situations before and I’m not going to back down or shy away. I’m going to go out tomorrow and work as hard as I can to achieve my career long goal. I’ve played the European Tour, this is my 11th or 12th season, it’s one of the things you want to do and I’m 34 now and time is ticking away. Not only do I want to be part of the team but I want to be part of the winning team. I feel like I can add a lot to that if I do get to Whistling Straits and hopefully I can do that tomorrow”.
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.
