Bale. Golf. California. In that order. Gareth Bale is gearing up to tee off in the PGA Tour. This is not a drill or a dream, this is happening.


The Welsh superstar retired from football earlier in January 2023 and has announced he will take part in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am event taking place in February.

Bale has always fostered a love for golf, highlighted by the fact he has a three-hole course based on famous holes from around the world in his back garden in Wales.

He will take his practice to the big stage in Pebble Beach, where he will feature as part of the Pro-Am team competition.

Bale is one of 156 amateur players who will be paired with a professional in a better-ball format.

He cannot win the main individual competition (not that he is expected to play anywhere near the standard capable of doing so) but can make a name for himself by punching in a strong display in the amateur competition.

Bill Murray, Macklemore and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will also compete in the event. brings you all the details about when Gareth Bale will make his PGA Tour debut at Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
