Welsh soccer hero Gareth Bale proved his strong golf skills.
Bale hit a 7 under par 65 in the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am of the PGA (American Professional Golf) Tour held at the Spyglass Hill course in Pebble Beach, California on the 3rd (Korean time). Tied for 18th place, 5 strokes behind the leader. Bale, paired with Joseph Bramlett, who is active on the PGA Tour, used a low chip shot to save the ball that went off the green and onto the cart road in the second hole, hitting the slope in front of the green and hitting the hole cup to create a par save I did too.
Bale said after the game that day, “When I was playing soccer, I played a lot at a live broadcasting place watched by 80,000 people, but today was completely different,” sweeping his heart. After the second hole shot, he smiled, saying, “It was amazing. Like all amateur golfers, I tried hard to hit the shot, but it turned out to be a good result. I was incredibly happy.”
The Pebble Beach Pro-Am Amateur division will compete on three courses – Spyglass Hill, Monterey Peninsula and Pebble Beach – before the top 25 pro-am pairs will advance to the final round at the Pebble Beach Links course. 메이저사이트
