Gareth Bale going to play in a PGA Tour Event
Following his retirement from football, Gareth Bale announced on Instagram Monday that he will be participating in an event on the PGA Tour.
Bale retired from football earlier this month after playing in the 2022 World Cup. He will be making his professional golf debut at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
“Delighted to announce I will be playing in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the start of next month!” Bale said on Instagram.
Golf is a passion of the 33-year-old and the phrase “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order,” was put on a Welsh flag that the star waved while on international duty.
While the end of his career may have been surrounded by issues relating to his playing time in Madrid, Bale is still one of the most successful players of his generation. He rose to stardom while playing for Tottenham which earned him a move to Real Madrid.
For Real Madrid, Bale was part of their dynasty winning five UEFA Champions League titles and three La Liga titles. Alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, the “BBC” trio became one of the greatest front threes ever.
In recent seasons, Bale’s playing time plummeted and saw him go on loan back to Tottenham. He made a final move to join LAFC in June 2022. Bale helped lead the MLS club to the MLS Cup. Coming on as a sub in extra time, Bale scored a 120+8’ equalizer to send the match to penalties. In the shootout, LAFC edged out the Philadelphia Union 3-0 to lift the team’s first MLS Cup title.
Joining Bale at the 2023 Pebble Beach Pro-Am are US Open Champion Matt Fitzpatrick, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and actor Bill Murray. A total of 312 people will be playing with there being 156 professionals and 156 amateurs playing.
