We think it’s fair to say that Alex Morgan has nothing left to prove on the soccer pitch. She has pretty much done it all. With a couple of FIFA World Cup titles to her name, a NWSL Championship, an Olympic gold medal and several personal awards and accolades, she has effectively cemented herself in the history books.
But she’s not finished yet. In addition to continuing her career on the soccer field, the athlete is challenging and proving herself in other big arenas across the professional sports landscape. Most recently, this manifested in her participation in the Farmers Insurance ProAm, an event hosted to kick off the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, Calif.
The athlete headed to the West Coast golf course earlier this week for the chance to show off her skills with a golf club in her hand. And that she did. Alongside golf professionals like Collin Morikawa and with her husband, Servando Carrasco, at her side, she put her athleticism to the test.
“Basically a Pro now🏌️♀️,” she joked in the caption of an Instagram reel that she shared from the day.
“😮 DUAL-THREAT,” Serena Williams’s husband, Alexis Ohanian, commented.
“Nice swing ya got there,” fellow pro soccer player Meleana Shim complimented the athlete.
“Thanks for joining the pro-am! Loved having you out 🤩⛳️,” the official account of the Farmers Insurance Open wrote.
We won’t go so far as suggest Morgan should switch sports, but her play was certainly promising. If not a pro endeavor, she should definitely take up the sport recreationally.
