Two weeks after retiring from professional football, Gareth Bale turns up in… golf tournament


Gareth Bale has confirmed that he will make an appearance next week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. That is a tournament for professional golfers in the United States. Bale is invited to participate along with some celebrities such as rapper Macklemore, American Football star Aaron Rodgers and actors Bill Murray, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett (the latter two are known from the sitcom Arrested Development, among others).

During his time at Real Madrid, big earner Bale was accused of spending too much time with golf and too little football in his last contract years. That story escalated when, after an international win with Wales, he posed with a fan’s banner reading ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid’ stood.

His lucrative contract with Real Madrid expired last year, after which he played for Los Angeles FC and with the national team at the World Cup before putting an end to his career. Since then he is said to have completely devoted himself to golf. According to British media, the Welsh Football Association has already asked him for a position. With 21 trophies, Bale was one of the best British players ever.
