– There are moments when Hideki Matsuyama goes into a trance and anything less than leaving the ball less than two or three meters from the hole seems little or very little to him. His reactions are already famous: if the camera focuses on the Japanese and his gesture makes us think of a bad shot, a big mistake, it turns out that many times the least he does is to hunt the green in regulation. It also happens the other way around, although not so many times: he misses the shot, but his gesture language is telling us that it is not so bad either… Moral of the story: if you are on the course following the Japanese, keep an eye on the flight of the ball and nothing else.
– A few weeks ago in Ireland, there were some illustrious players for whom the organization reserved a specific parking space with their name on it. Fans sometimes crowded around them in search of autographs. What a mess Matsuyama could have made on one occasion to simply park his car in a battery… He didn’t succeed in any way. Hideki Empanadas, delicious, delicious.

Latin American golf had a great weekend at the 3M Open of the PGA Tour, a tournament that saw both Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas and Chilean Mito Pereira shine. Leading for much of the beginning of the final round, Vegas found himself with a “putter really on fire” after scoring birdies on holes 1, 3 and 5 of the TPC Twin Cities. Those hits led him to register an overall score of -13 and left him with very good chances of winning his fourth PGA Tour title.
The other Latin American who shone in Minnesota was the Chilean Mito Pereira, who closed his journey in the 3M Open with a 67 card (-4) that included seven birdies and three bogeys. It was precisely a crucial birdie on the 18th hole that allowed him to finish the tournament in sixth place with a cumulative score of 273 strokes (-11).
This great performance propelled Pereira to 178th place in the FedEx Cup with only five tournaments played in 2020-21. In fact, the Chilean has made three consecutive cuts on the PGA Tour, including a fifth place finish at the Barbasol Championship and a sixth this week at the 3M Open.

Interviewed for the HBO documentary, Sports Illustrated golf writer Alan Shipnuck said Woods viewed Mickelson with “disdain.” In Woods’ mind, Mickelson was his equal in raw ability but didn’t work as hard on his game or his conditioning.
Tiger Woods has won nearly twice as many tournaments on the PGA tour as Phil Mickelson. Woods has dominated for back-to-back seasons. He has won 72 tournaments on tour in his career so far, and I have no doubt he will continue to add to that total. At one point between 1999 and 2003, Tiger won 32 events.
The film is based on the book Golf’s Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia by Dr. David Lamar Cook, a psychologist who received a Ph.D. in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of Virginia.
