Reporter Park Dae-ro = On the first day of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Tournament of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, Korean players fell behind in the middle ranks. Former soccer player Gareth Bale, on the other hand, was formidable in his first PGA event.
Ahn Byeong-hun (32) and Kang Seong-hoon (36) tied for 47th by hitting 2 under par side by side in the first round of the tournament held in Pebble Beach, California, USA on the 3rd (Korean time). 슬롯사이트
Ahn Byeong-hoon took 1 eagle and 2 birdies at the Monterey Peninsula Country Club (par 71) and committed 2 bogies.
Kang Seong-hoon recorded 1 eagle, 3 birdies and 3 bogeys at the Pebble Beach Golf Links (par 72).
Noh Seung-yeol tied for 79th with an even par, and Kim Seong-hyun tied for 117th with a 2-over par.
The sole leader is Hank Levioda (USA) who hit 8 under par.
Former football star Gareth Bale, who won the European Football Federation Champions League, showed off his formidable skills.
Bale played in a group with Joseph Bramlett (USA) in the first round and hit 7 under par to rank 18th.
In this tournament, 156 pros and 156 celebrities will compete in groups. For each hole, a better ball method is applied, which reflects the record of the better hit among pros and celebrities. However, the championship trophy is awarded in a way that divides the pro and pro-am.
Bale, known as a golf fanatic, announced his golf challenge after retiring from football last month. As Bale performed well in his first pro-am, attention is expected to be focused on Bale’s next move.
