Weeks after retiring from football, Gareth Bale confirms he will play at PGA golf event

Gareth Bale has wasted no time in grabbing the golf clubs after his retirement, announcing his participation in the upcoming Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

The former Tottenham, Real Madrid and Wales player stepped away from football earlier this month following his participation at the 2022 World Cup, bringing an end to a glittering career that included winning five Champions League titles.

The 33-year-old confirmed on Tuesday, via his verified Instagram page that he will be lining up alongside professionals and other celebrities at the golf event in California, which begins on February 2.

Bale wrote: “Delighted to announce I will be playing in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the start of next month! Let’s go.”

It will surprise few given Bale’s renowned love of golf, famously drawing the ire of Real Madrid fans when he posed with a flag while on international duty that read: “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.”

Other confirmed celebrities for the tournament so far include actors Bill Murray and Jason Bateman, as well as Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
