The five-time Champions League winner is a long-time fan of golf, and fans have all been making the same joke.

One wrote: “Odds on Gareth bale winning a LIV golf tournament in the next five years?”

A second commented: “Waiting for LIV Golf to pay some crazy money to Gareth Bale to play a few rounds of golf.”

A third said: “I give it six weeks before Gareth Bale’s announced to be playing in that dodgy Saudi golf league.”

A fourth added: “Fair play to Gareth Bale he had a very good career now time for him to play a lot more golf.”

A fifth joked: “Gareth Bale will probably win a professional golf tournament before Tottenham Hotspur win a trophy.”

The Welshman has often been seen golfing and even his former team-mate goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois coined him ‘The Golfer’.

Bale also built an indoor golf course in Cardiff. It is called Par 59 and has three nine-hole courses, a bar and a restaurant.


The 33-year-old even opened a second venue in Bristol at the end of last year.

He has also been backed by Betfair to turn his attention to turning professional in the sport, with odds set at 5/2.

It had often been claimed that during the end of his time at Real Madrid that when he was not playing football he was instead at the gold course.

He did defend himself by saying that was not the case.

Bale said: “I’ve been available for quite a lot of the games in Spain. Sometimes you just don’t get picked so people assume that you’re injured.

“There is a perception I play a lot of golf which I don’t, or people think I’m injured a lot when I’m actually not.”
