Gareth Vale (Wales) showed off his outstanding golf skills on the first day of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (total prize money of $9 million) on the PGA Tour.
In the first round of the tournament held on the 3rd (Korean time) at the Spyglass Hill Course (par 72) in Pebble Beach, California, USA, Bale tied for 18th place with Joseph Bramlett (USA) and 7 under par 65 strokes. It is 5 strokes away from the single leader.
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is a PGA Tour event where celebrities from all walks of life play alongside pros. Professional players determine the winner by their individual scores, and amateurs determine the winning team based on the combined results of the professional players who have formed a team.
Bale, who played 111 A-matches, including the Welsh national team at the Qatar World Cup last year, is a soccer star who played for Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur until retiring last month. 온라인카지노
Participating in his first PGA Tour event, he showed off his performance worthy of an ‘amateur golf master’ on the first day of this tournament. The most brilliant play of the day was the par save on hole 2 (par 4). Bale’s second shot came to a halt on the edge of the cart road. But he didn’t waver. Bale caught the par with his third shot on the cart road about 1m away from the hole. Golf fans and soccer fans alike went wild. Bale’s 2nd hole par save scene was so popular that it received more than 70,000 ‘likes’ on the PGA Tour social network service (SNS).
Bale said, “I’m used to playing soccer in front of 80,000 spectators or in a situation where more people are watching on TV. But golf is a completely different sport.” The save was so great I don’t even need to talk about it,” he said.
The ‘golf fanatic’ Bale, who is famous for spending a lot of time at the golf course since he was a soccer player, is well known for his love of golf. There is even a driving range, practice green, and three par 3 holes at home. His golf skills are also excellent, as he recorded 7 under par with Bramlett on the first day of this tournament. It is known that Bale submitted his handicap as 2 to the organizing committee of this tournament.
