Rafael Nadal hits the golf course for Pro-Am

Wednesday October 19th, 2011


Rafael Nadal, on a much-needed break from tennis, participated Wednesday in the Castello Masters Pro-Am in Borriol, Spain, with his good friend Sergio Garcia. It's nice to see Nadal take some time away from his day job, though it's slightly jarring to see him in slacks and a sweater vest. I just assumed he'd show up sleeveless and bandana'd.

As the video shows, Rafa's just as methodical on the links as he is on the tennis court. The hair-tucking and fiddling with the tee are particularly choice.

Let us know what you think of his swing in the comments.
