The Tenis Icon Rafael Nadal who swapped his rackets for golf clubs and competed in the Balearic Golf Championship is surely adept on greens as he is on clay.

Competing alongside a mix of professionals, the King of Clay, finished the 60-player event in joint sixth position on Monday, 10 shots behind tournament winner Sebastian Garcia Grout in the final scorings.

Nadal reportedly has a handicap of + 0.3. Nadal, across three rounds, carded scores of 74, 74 and 77 to end the event nine over par.

It is pertinent to mention here that after showcasing an impressive display of sports on the golf course, the Spaniard will now turn his attention back to tennis for his ATP Tour return at next week’s Rolex Paris Masters.

In addition to this, he will aim to capture his first title at the ATP Masters 1000 tournament and equal Novak Djokovic’s record haul of 36 titles at the level.

Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic to win his 13th French Open title earlier this month and move level with Roger Federer on 20 Grand Slam titles.

Nadal was all business as he registered a 6-0, 6-2, 7-5, and claimed his 13th title at Roland Garros.

He defeated in 2 hours and 41 minutes at Court Philippe-Chatrier in Paris. Nadal without conceding a game took the opening set in just 48 minutes.

The Tennis legend Roger Federer in 2018 became the first men’s player to win 20 Grand Slam titles.

In 2005, Nadal won his first title, this is the fourth consecutive title won by the 34-year-old tennis player on the Parisian Terre battue.

Earlier, Nadal had won the Australian Open once, Wimbledon twice and the US Open four times.
