After the beginning of the season in which he started in the best way, with four top-20 in the first three months, Emiliano Grillo is dealing with the ups and downs of the final weeks of his season.

The 31-year-old Argentine will look outside the United States for extra motivation that will allow him to rediscover the good level he closed last year. His first date is the Genesis Scottish Open, this week at The Rennaisance, then he will play The Open Championship, the last major of the year at Royal Troon, and He will then head to Le Golf National in search of a dream medal at the Paris Olympic Games.

Grillo departs early this Thursday and beyond looking to star in this event sanctioned by the PGA TOUR and the DP World Tour, the Argentine will be looking to improve his game for what’s to come. I’ve been up and down lately and my goal is to improve, so I came to play this tournament., I’ve always liked playing on the links and this is quite similar. The plan is to prepare for next week, which is one of the most important and where I hope to repeat something similar to last year.”said the Argentine who placed 6th at The Open Championship in 2023.

“Last year was a great experience, it was very difficult in the last round, I also had to play with Rory McIlroy, which makes it even more special, and despite that I was able to play very well, so that definitely motivates me for these. week”said Grillo, who achieved his best British Open performance there, at Royal Liverpool.

Next week will be Emiliano Grillo’s eighth participation in The Open, coincidentally the first was at Royal Troon, in 2016, when he finished tied for 12th place. “I’ve played at Troon in 2016, I also happened to play Rory in the last round, I loved it and I think of all the Open courses I’ve played, it’s up there with my favourites”said will be looking to gain confidence ahead of another crucial week of the year.

Cricket already knows what the Olympic Games are, since golf returned to them in Rio 2016, the native of Chaco earned a diploma by finishing in eighth place. He did not participate in Tokyo, but now he will be part of the world event in Paris 2024.

“Playing in the Olympic Games is something special, because it’s something that happens every four years, from the outside you can see that it’s basically the same because we play 18 holes and the format is the same every week , but There is something special about playing for our country.commented someone who already knows the course where Olympic golf is played, which is the same one where the Open de France is played, every year of the DP World Tour.

Winning a medal would be amazing for me and my country, it would be a way to motivate the youngest“It’s hard for us not to think selfishly, but it’s a great opportunity for a lot of people who don’t watch golf to learn about the sport and be motivated in case they can fight for medals.” But the Olympic experience wasn’t just on the golf course for Emiliano. I am in the Olympic village and the idea is to have the opportunity to watch other sports, “That’s kind of the plan, I’m going to try to enjoy that experience for a few days.”.

In 2004, when Emiliano was 11 years old, the gold medals of the Argentine basketball and soccer team in Athens served as motivation and inspiration for a boy who was taking his first steps in golf, now he himself can become one to fulfill that. function for many of the children in Argentina.
