Gareth Bale's dream is about to be realized. Win the Champions League? Already done. Sign for Real Madrid? Also. A big golf fan, the 34-year-old Welshman was modeled in the video game PGA Tour 2K2023 and thus becomes a playable character by users.
During his last years of contract with Real Madrid, Bale was sometimes criticized for his all-consuming passion for golf, with the media and supporters accusing him of preferring it to playing football. The slogan “Wales. Golf. Real Madrid. In this order” had even become cult.
Retired since January 2023, the Welshman with five Champions League titles made a final whirlwind stint at Los Angeles FC, in MLS, where he won the MLS Cup.
