‘Former soccer player’ Gareth Bale (35, Wales), who has been highly praised by the world’s top professional golfers, has excellent golf skills.
Bale played the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour held at the Spyglass Course (par 72) in Pebble Beach, California on the 3rd (hereafter Korean time).
On this day, Bale recorded a 7-under-par 65. Tied for 18th place, 5 strokes behind the leader. Even at the Pro-Am round played the day before, Bale made an amazing shot, drawing the admiration of tour pro golfers.
In the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, professional players and amateurs compete in one group, and after three days of competition on three courses, the top 25 groups will have a final round. In professional players, those who pass the cut compete for the championship cup.
After making a shot miss on the second hole, Bale showed a great shot to put the ball on the cart road into the hole cup. Afterwards, Bale recorded a par save.
Bale is a Welsh legend who won the UEFA Champions League five times through Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid.
However, Bale has also been criticized for practicing his golf swing during his football career. As much as he was, he had an outstanding talent in golf.
In fact, Bale was highly praised by world number 3 John Lam. Lam even commented on Bale, saying, “Bale’s golf skills are not fair.”
“We’re used to playing live TV matches in front of 80,000 spectators, but golf is a completely different sport,” Bale said after the game. 메이저놀이터
