The Pro Am was the great attraction this Wednesday in Valderrama, where a new edition of the Estrella Damm NA Andalucía Masters will start on Thursday. In these days prior to the start of the tournaments, professional players share a lap with celebrities or executives of the sponsoring companies and for the occasion the poster was luxurious. Neither more nor less than two greats, from football and basketball respectively, like Luis Figo and Pau Gasol, dropped by the Cadiz field.
Figo and Pau played together in a match with Barcelona professional Adri Arnaus, who accompanied them for nine holes before handing over to Scotsman Robert MacIntyre. Gasol met at one point with Rahm, who for his part accompanied the top managers of Estrella Damm, and the two exchanged impressions for a while between smiles..
The former Catalan basketball player, who recently announced his retirement from the courts, was taken by Pablo Martínez-Arroyo, who played as a point guard for Estudiantes, Cáceres or Huelva in the 90s. “He has charisma. He can become a great reference in Spanish sport,” said Gasol de Rahmbo after finishing his round at Valderrama, where he exhibited a very neat game.
