Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus says on the Five Clubs podcast he has not had the chance to speak to Tiger Woods but believes if he were to win The Masters again it would eclipse the six green jackets he won.
Jack Nicklaus, statements
“I think it would eclipse it.
For him physically to get back and win a Masters this year, it would be absolutely fantastic. I mean, for him to come back after what he’s been through and to win again, my hat would go off to him big time. I have not talked to him at all and I believe he is going to play.
When he can play and how much he can play, how much he can walk, I watched him at the father/son a little bit – he walks 10 times better than I walk, for someone almost 82 but that’s besides the point. He’ll figure it out, that’s what he’s always done – that’s what champions do.
He’s a champion” 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.
