[Goal.com] Reporter Park Moon-soo = Welsh legend Gareth Bale, who recently announced his retirement, seems to have ‘real’ golf skills.
Spanish golfer and world No. 3 in men’s golf, Jon Rahm, gave Bale a thumbs-up. It’s not about football. It’s about Bale, a golfer.
After his retirement, Bale ventured out on the Professional Golf of America (PGA) Tour. It was a decision he made after taking off his soccer boots for 15 days. Bale, who announced his participation in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, is preparing for the second act of his life, showing off his extraordinary golf skills. Prior to the official competition, Bale started training with Jon Rahm.
Ram, who saw this, did not hide his surprise at Bale’s extraordinary golf skills. According to this media (Goal.com) ‘Global’, Ram said, “You can’t be good at professional football and golf at the same time. This doesn’t seem fair.” It’s difficult. This isn’t fair in the slightest.” 스포츠토토
The remark that it was not fair was the so-called special compliment.
Bale, along with Ryan Giggs, is regarded as one of Wales’ greatest ever players. During his active career, he rocked a lot as a player. His starting point was Tottenham Hotspur. After he moved from Southampton to Tottenham, he showed steady growth. He started out as a wide defender, but gradually started to move up.
Bale, who was recognized for his ability as a winger, also performed well in the center under manager Andre Villas-Boas. Even in the so-called freeroll, he showed top-notch skills, and thanks to that, he stood tall as one of the best players of his time.
In the summer of 2013 he moved to Real Madrid. In the first season of his transfer, in the UEFA Champions League final, he activated the winning goal and presented Real with his 10th big year. In the 2017/18 season, Bale led Real to the championship with a performance like Altoran after a second half substitution. Including the record in the 2021/22 season, which was close to a free ride (?), Bale lifted the Big Ear five times in Real Madrid alone. In two of these finals, he was the protagonist of the winning goal.
In Wales, too, Bale made several pages of national team history. At Euro 2016, he led Wales to a semi-final. It was unfortunate that he was eliminated from the group stage, but at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he helped the national team advance to the finals after 64 years.
As a player, Bale was world-class, but at the same time, due to frequent injuries, he could not shake off the stigma of having a glass body. He even got beaten up for appearing more often on the golf course than on the soccer field.
now it’s past tense Taking off his soccer boots, Bale is preparing for the second act of his life on another field. It was once a hobby, but now golf has become a keyword that announces another beginning of Bale.
