Shane Lowry: “There is a bit of fatigue here”

Shane Lowry proved once again why he is one of the most renowned links players in golf as he carded a 67 at St Andrews in tough conditions to sit just three shots off the lead heading into the final round of the 2021 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Shane Lowry, statements

“There’s a bit of fatigue, all right. Obviously it’s a bit of a comedown from last week to this week but it’s still a big tournament in its own right.I’m a competitor. I’m a competitive person. When I come play, I want to do well. So I’m out there giving it my all. I managed to play some nice golf over the last three days, I’m in a nice position now going into tomorrow and I look forward to it.  I’m OK with the wind. The back nine was playing incredibly tough. I shot level par on the back nine with a bad bogey on ten. I would have taken that standing on the tenth tee. It was like the rain started coming in, it was quite cold out there and the ball was going nowhere. I’m able to deal with that, I’m able to do it. I hit some nice shots and gave myself a couple of chances. I’m very happy with my day’s work”.

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.
