‘Soccer star’ Gareth Bale (England) opened the second act of his life as a golf player.
In the third round of the PGA Tour AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (par 72) held in Monterey, California, USA on the 6th, Bale recorded 16 under par 199 strokes and tied for 16th in the final rankings. The tournament is a format in which스포츠토토 amateurs and professional golfers pair up to play rounds, and the better score in each play is the team score.
Bale joined Southampton in 2006 and played for Real Madrid and Tottenham. He announced his retirement from active duty last January after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he participated as the Welsh national team.
His love of golf was well known during his soccer days. At the time he was playing for Real Madrid, he was criticized by fans for showing that he was more interested in golf than football.
“The last two weeks have been great. He received a lot of praise, but there was also a lot of pressure.” He also admired his partner, Pro Joseph Bramlitt (USA), saying, “I felt the difference just by looking at his strength, touch, etc.,” and “I couldn’t ask for a better partner than him.”
The tournament was scheduled to be played in 4 rounds of 72 holes, but the game was suspended due to strong winds, so the amateurs only played 54 holes in the 3rd round. However, the pro progressed to the 4th round.
The amateur championship was won by Aaron Rogers (USA) from the National Football League (NFL), who scored a final total of 26 under par 189 strokes. He is also a star player who has been named MVP four times in the NFL.
Meanwhile, professional Kang Seong-hun scored a final total of 7 under par, 280 strokes, and tied for 28th in the final rankings.
