Rafael Nadal wins golf charity event in Mallorca

The Rafael Nadal's team won the 'Olazábal&Nadal Invitational' golf charity event for the third year in a row after overcoming the team led by José María Olazábal by 35 shots.

The tournament, that took place for the fifth year, was played in Son Servera, near Mallorca, with three amateur golfers and one professional per each team. 'Our goal is to create and give opportunities to younger guys who didn't have as same as ours', said Nadal.

Profits will entirely go to Olazabal and Nadal respective foundations. 'For me and my Foundation, any event that raises funds is always welcome. We work with kids, we run programs about education and sport.' Nadal is enjoying free time at home and recovering from the right knee injury sustained in the final part of the season.

He will kick off his season at the Mubadala World Tennis Championships exhibition event in Abu Dhabi, then will play first competitive tournament of 2018 in Brisbane ahead of Australian Open.
