The days leading up to the BMW PGA Championship are always a great golf festival in part thanks to the Pro Am that is held. The actor Tom Holland, who plays Spider Man in the cinematic fiction, has played with the Spanish Jon Rahm.
The actor has confessed that he was glued to the television during the last day of the Augusta Masters in which he won the 'León de Barrika' Jon even told him that he had a hard time holding back tears as he walked toward the 18th green the moment he saw his family.
'Rahmbo' has also been with former Real Madrid player Gareth Bale.
The Wentworth Pro Am brings together a large number of stars every year. From athletes to artists, and of course personalities from the business world.
Jon Rahm was also able to play with Gareth Bale. The Spaniard continues to be amazed by the Welshman's level of golf, whom he does not see far from the professionals. We can remember the former Madrista's fabulous hole in one at Torrey Pines.
Cricketers James Anderson and Stuart Broad have also been in the Pro Am; rugby player Thom Evans; former footballer John Terry; singer Brian McFadden; or actor Tom Felton from the Harry Potter franchise. Gareth Frank Bale (Cardiff, 16 July 1989) is a former Welsh footballer who played as a forward.
He is considered one of the best footballers of his generation, he grew up in the youth sector of Southampton, the team with which he made his professional debut. In the summer of 2007, at the age of eighteen, he moved to Tottenham, where he established himself as one of the most promising talents of his generation, winning an English League Cup and, on an individual level, twice the PFA's Best Player of the Year (2011 and 2013).
In the summer of 2013 he moved to Real Madrid for a total sum of 100 million euros, which made him, at that time, the most expensive purchase in the history of football. With the Spanish team he won three Spanish championships, one Copa del Rey, three Spanish Super Cups, five UEFA Champions Leagues, three UEFA Super Cups and four FIFA Club World Cups.
With the Welsh national team, of which he is the record holder for appearances and goals, he participated in two editions of the European championship (2016 and 2020) and one of the world championship (2022). On 2 June 2022, for sporting and humanitarian merits, he was appointed member of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II.
