Sunshine Tour, golfers in the field for animals

Golfers on the Sunshine Tour, South Africa’s main men’s circuit, take to the field alongside the animals and, in particular, Cape Town’s Glen Graze Sanctuary. The tour players’ committee unexpectedly donated 10,000 rand to support the animal sanctuary, along with another 10,000 personally funded by Justin Harding. Born and raised in Cape Town – boasting two titles on the DP World Tour, as many on the Asian Tour and seven on the Sunshine Tour – Harding said he was “particularly touched by the cause”.

Sunshine Tour, numbers

The Glen Graze Sanctuary currently welcomes 19 horses, 14 cats, 12 dogs, 4 donkeys, cows, sheep and pigs. And that now, thanks to the Sunshine Tour players’ committee, they will be able to continue to receive care and support.

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.
