Tyrrell Hatton is alone in the lead of standing

Having already won it in 2016 and 2017, Tyrrell Hatton pursues his third success at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, a tournament of the European Tour that is played with a pro-am formula (one professional and one amateur). In Scotland the Englishman, with a total of 134 (64 70, -10), remained alone in the lead of the standings and, halfway through the race, has a shot of advantage on compatriot Daniel Gavins, second with 135 (-9) . In the event of the maximum continental circuit, which takes place on three different courses (all par 72) – the Kingsbarns Golf Links, the Carnoustie and the historic Old Course (the only competition theater of the fourth round) – a beautiful comeback by Renato Paratore, from 55 / o seventh with 138 (70 68, -6). The Roman, who today played at the Old Course, with a 68 (-4) supported by six birdies and fouled by two bogeys, has returned to the bottom and is now the best among the seven blues in the race.

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.
