The Balearic golfer publicly reappeared without crutches after receiving a foot treatment last Thursday that will keep him away from the slopes for the next few months. Nadal showed his great passion for golf by visiting Golf Santander by surprise. Nadal delighted with his undaunted smile, and even challenged four of the legends who gathered at the Pro-Am, specifically the four professionals present who have some participation in the Solheim Cup: Tania Elósegui, Raquel Carriedo, Paula Martí and Ana Belén Sánchez. The professionals competed with Rafa Nadal on the 18th green, with a symbolic putt stroke that showed the quality of the tennis player also on the golf courses.
Nadal, handicap -1.2, who could be seen walking with caution, showed that golf is one of his great passions. With a very friendly and smiling attitude, she enjoyed with the players this fun challenge in which Tania Elósegui was the professional who managed to get the ball closer to the hole, ahead of a Rafa Nadal who was about to hole in his first tried.
The Balearic tennis player has proven to be one of the great supporters of women's golf, sharing games with players such as Nuria Iturrioz on numerous occasions, a player who has a victory on the Santander Golf Tour. In addition, he claimed to be a loyal follower of the European Solheim Cup team, following their victory last weekend on American soil.
Finally, the Catalan Paula Martí, Ambassador of the Solheim Cup 2023 that will be played in Finca Cortesín, Andalusia, gave Rafa Nadal his credentials as ambassador of said tournament, thus becoming the first Ambassador of this competition that will be played in two years from September 18 to 24.
