The PGA Championship has begun with the first round being held on 6th August 2020. Jason Day opened the tournament. He was the 2015 champion and was joined on the leader board by Brendon Todd. The first two days have been amazing and have shown an amazing leader board. The 35-year-old Mike Lorenzo-Vera has entered the weekend tied for second from France. Not expecting him in the majors, let us find out who Lorenzo-Vera is?
Mike Lorenzo-Vera is known for his sharp short game, fine mustache, and wittiness. He is said to be one of the biggest players in this tour. The struggle for him to reach this position was real as during the time of his early career he had a debt of 400,000 euros due to some decisions that he had made. He also had to face anxiety issues and visited Meriem Salmi, a French psychologist who helped him to change his life.
In 2009, Mike started playing professional and a year later he got his first win. Then, he entered the European Challenge Tour and finished in the Top 10 being 7th on the money list. He led the 2008 Volvo China Open with 36 holes and also set a record in the opening round of Apulia San Domenico Grand Final. During his difficult time, he was out of cash from 2011 to 2013 and so he missed out on 21 times in 43 starts and also made mistakes on his taxes. His father also passed away during that time and so he took time to recover himself. After joining the game again, he has been steady ever since.
Mike likes to keep his personal life private so not much is known about his childhood or relationship status. Lorenzo-Vera is making his start and is playing his fifth major career tournament. With golf being put on pause, things were put on a break. Rattling out 5 birdies including 3 straights, this Friday he has become the topic of discussion. The success has led to curiosity among the people and his story is surely an incredible one. We will keep you updated with more such information, till then stay tuned with us.
