Rafa Nadal’s love for golf has been public and notorious for years. The Spaniard has been seen in a PGA tournament and maintains a good relationship with a legend of this sport, who resembles tennis in many ways, such as Tiger Woods. When his busy schedule allows it, the manacorense, who has a handicap of +0.3, almost at the level of the professionals, likes to go out to play some holes and These days he disputes the Balearic Championship for professionals, an event in which he has already participated previously.
The Marriott Golf de Son Antem is the venue for an event that began on Saturday and will end this Monday. And if last year Rafa finished sixth (in the absolute championship he was fourth and came to lead), this time he is on his way to repeating at least one top-10. On the first day, the man from Manacor went to 74 strokes for a great card of two over par and this Sunday he signed a +5 to +7 in total, which left him in a very respectable sixth place although far from the leader, Sebastián García Trout with -2.
Nadal scored four bogeys, a double bogey and managed to subtract at par 5 from 13. The remaining 12 holes were played at par. Only four players, the first in the table, managed to defeat the field in the penultimate round of a tournament that scores for the world ranking of fans. Following his resignation from Wimbledon and the Games, Rafa relaxes while maintaining form with his second passion. For now, he has not revealed where his next appearance on a tennis court will be.
