The 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which he participated as a representative of Wales last year, is his last career.
Bale, who had a special love for golf as a player, took off his soccer shoes and picked up a golf club.
Immediately after his retirement, he participated in the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Pro-Am, an unofficial game, and fully demonstrated his amateur top-level skills in this tournament.
Bale received a handicap of ‘2’ from the organizers of this tournament, which means he averages 74 strokes on the par 72 course.
He is the second best amateur player in this tournament.
The championship was won by Aaron Rogers (USA), a former NFL quarterback who hit a total of 26 under par 189 strokes.
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is played by pairs of amateurs and pros.
Meanwhile, the tournament was originally scheduled to be held in 4 rounds of 72 holes, but due to bad local weather, the amateur players played only 3 rounds.
