The Match, DeChambeau duels with Koepka

Eventually only one will remain. At least for one day the match between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka will have a winner. The two pros – who do not estimate themselves far from the golf clubs – will be opponents on the field. The two Americans will be the protagonists of the fifth edition of The Match, a media-golf event that this year will be played on November 26 (immediately after Thanksgiving) at the Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas.

The Match, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka

Someone speaks of the challenge as a showdown. Luckily it is just a golf competition between two of the best players in the world who first clashed and then, after the triumph in the Ryder Cup, sealed the peace with a hug. “This means we are starting a friendship,” Koepka’s tweet. “Finally what the world expected to see”, DeChambeau’s reply, again via social network. America is thus preparing to witness a new episode of an open show, in 2018, by Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. The match this time will be played over a distance of 12 holes.

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.
