Tommaso Zorzetto, statements

“My university experience so far has been only one year, but thanks to the unthinkable possibilities of American universities I have managed to improve my playing consistency a lot. I have adapted to different types of fields. Furthermore, the level is very high and the competition very high. All this has therefore helped me to become a better player. So I hope to be able to improve a lot in the remaining three years. Golf in Italy is growing a lot but competition abroad, especially in the United States, is of a higher level. All this, I believe, is necessary to become a high-level professional who can compete on major tours. You work hard for what you want because it is an unforgettable golfing and life experience. Furthermore, to do this it is important to do well in school. The style of the pitch changes a lot, then it depends on what state you are in. Generally speaking, the typical American layout is represented by a wide, long, and more difficult course around and on the green. In Italian courts you usually find yourself playing on generally shorter and narrower fields. However, the difference in the grass should also be emphasized, which at first glance amazes so much around the greens”.

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.
