Gareth Bale is surprised by his golf skills, ranking third in the world…”It’s not fair”. Complaining.
Gareth Bale, who retired from professional football at a relatively early age of 33, was praised by top professional golfers for his talent.
According to the BBC and Euro Sports on the 25th, Jon Lam (28, Spain), the winner of the 2021 U.S. Open and world No. 3 in men’s golf, complained jokingly after rounding with Bale at a pro-am event ahead of the opening of the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open this week.
Yonram played a nine-hole “four-ball game” with Bale, ESPN golf analyst Michael Collins, and female golfer Tisha Allin, who is famous for her social media activities, in this Pro-Am held at Torrey Pines GC (par 72) in California.
After the game, Jon Lam responded that he was surprised by Bale’s golf skills.
“I can’t be good at both professional football and golf for Gareth,” he said. It doesn’t seem fair,” he said.
“It’s not fair to have this much talent in golf even though I couldn’t concentrate on one thing (to Vale),” he continued.
At pro-am events, amateurs often ask professional golfers for advice. But Bale said he did not ask for any help.
Jon Lam said, “He didn’t ask anything, he shouldn’t ask. He’s already good enough,” he gave a thumbs up.
Bale announced his retirement from active duty on the 9th. Bale is famous for being a ‘golf maniac’. Some predict that he will be able to challenge himself to become a professional golfer.
Jon Lam said, “He can’t do that well when he’s a professional soccer player. “But now that I’ve stopped playing soccer, I can actually practice more, and I’ll be much better,” he predicted.
He said, “He got two strokes (handicap +2) in this Pro-Am, and I think this is wrong. The score should be returned to other amateurs. Because he’s such a great player,” he repeatedly praised Bale’s skills.
Earlier on the 23rd, two weeks after the retirement announcement, Bale announced a contract to test his skills by participating in the PGA Tour AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which will open next month. 엔트리파워볼
The competition, which will be held in Pebble Beach, California, from the 2nd to the 5th, will feature 156 professional players to determine the winner, and the same number of celebrities (amateurs) will play together to produce separate results, and Bale will compete as an amateur.
Two weeks ago, Bale said, “I look forward to the next step in my life and move on. “It will be a time of change and transition and an opportunity for new adventures,” he said, announcing his immediate retirement from the club and the national team.
