The Spaniard came in sixth place in a 60-player golf tournament over the weekend in Spain. The kind of clay has traded in his racquets for a set of golf clubs, and the results have been (to nobody's surprise) promising. Over the weekend Rafael Nadal took part in the Balearic Open on his home island of Manacor, and finished sixth out of a 60-player field, completing 54 holes at nine over par.

Nadal was +2 on the first two days of the three-day event, then +5 on the final day.

Not long after finishing up the event, Nadal was back on the practice court, getting ready for his appearance at next week’s Paris Masters. The 20-time Grand Slam champion owns a career record of 19-5 at Bercy. He reached the semifinals at the event last year.
