Welsh football legend Gareth Bale only retired from the round-ball game in January, but he’s already set to make his official PGA Tour golfing debut on Friday morning (AEDT).
Bale is one of 156 amateurs competing alongside 156 professionals at the famous Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California.
The list of amateur stars include two NFL quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen – the latter even skipping the Pro Bowl this weekend to compete – as well as Hollywood icon Bill Murray and rapper Macklemore.
But the golf-obsessed Bale boasts a two handicap, ranking him equal-10th among the amateurs teeing off at Pebble Beach.
