Jon Rahm: Gareth Bale is great in both football and golf, it's not fair

It is no secret that Gareth Bale has been criticized by many people throughout his football career. This was mainly due to the fact that he loved golf and played it as much as he could. A popular perception was that Bale would be distracted from football, which he was required to focus on more than golf.
Since the end of his football career, Bale has decided to devote all his time and energy to golf and has decided to quit football for life. It has been confirmed by the Welshman that he will also be playing in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am during the next few days on the Pga Tour.
It's interesting to note that Bale recently played with Jon Rahm, who was impressed by Bale's abilities.
"I told Gareth, you can't be so good at professional football and golf at the same time, it just doesn't seem fair.
Can't be dedicated to one thing and have this much talent for golf, it's not fair in the slightest."- he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com
Gareth has shown many times that golf is what he loves. Rahm hopes that the Welshman will show a lot in the future.
"He's looking to retire soon and you can tell he loves this sport, he loves golf and he really wants to get to play a little bit more, so hopefully in the future I'll see him more times in the pro-am”.
Jon Rahm on Gareth Bale and feedback
Rahm confirmed that Bale did not ask for feedback "He didn't ask for anything, nor should he be asking, he's already good enough.
Like I said, he has no business being that good when he's a professional football player”. Jon praised many aspects of the great Welshman's game. “The second he's done and he can actually practice more, he's going to get a lot better.
He got two strokes, which I think it's already wrong. He should be giving strokes back to the rest of the amateurs because he is a very, very good player”.
