Gareth Bale dominated pitches around the world with his delicate touch and blistering speed as a footballer, but now he’s showcasing his finesse as a golfer. Bale’s officially retired, but he’s still spending most of his time on the grass.

Gareth Bale is a seven-time Footballer of the Year, former Player of the Year, five-time Champions League winner, four-time FIFA Club World Cup winner, three-time Spanish Champion, and a three-time UEFA Super Cup winner. In the world of football, there isn’t much he hasn’t accomplished—but as an amateur golfer, he’s just getting started.

Via the latest update, take control of the Welsh football legend in PGA TOUR 2K23 and conquer pristine courses around the world, adding to his sterling resume. Bale’s accustomed to shaping free kicks into the back of a net, but shot shaping takes on an all-new meaning when the target is a tight fairway or miniscule green. Can you transfer Bale’s athletic gifts on the pitch to the links?

It’s rather unfair to the rest of us, but turns out Bale is a world class footballer and an exceptional golfer. In real life and in PGA TOUR 2K23, Bale possesses top-notch driving, next-level shot shaping, and a smooth transition and swing path. He’s an above-average putter, but it’s not his specialty—after all, he can’t be good at everything.

Play as Bale or one of the many playable pros and celebrities in PGA TOUR 2K23, and discover whose style works best with your strategy.
