I'm the No 1 Golfer in Real Madrid - Gareth Bale

The story of Gareth Bale and Golf seems to have no end.

Real Madrid

star Gareth Bale, claimed to be the top golfer in Real Madrid while recovering from a hamstring injury,

Bale, who joined Real Madrid in 2013, has had several successes with the club, but his love of another sport has called into question his commitment to the club. The Welsh star has been seen playing golf many times and once raised the banner "Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order" with the Wales national team, sparking controversy. He is currently injured and is trying to recover from the injury, but once again mentioned his interest in golf.

He said:

"There are only two of us playing golf in the Real Madrid dressing room, so without a doubt I'm the No 1 golfer on the team. Thibaut Courtois is the other one who plays, but he's not better than me."

Asked about the differences between football and golf, Bale added: 

"Whenever I get the chance and there's a golf tournament nearby, I come to watch it. It's amazing the atmosphere, the crowd, the good weather and, on top of that, honestly, these guys play very well.

"It's unbelievable how well they play for the pressure they're under. Football is different because you have pressure, but you also have a referee to deal with. The thing is, golf is a much more mental game; I feel more pressure here than in front of 80,000 spectators."
