Gareth Bale finished in joint-16th place at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am after missing out on the final round because of strong winds in California.
The amateur competition was shortened to 54 holes and ex-Wales footballer Bale and playing partner Joseph Bramlett ended on 16 under.
NFL great Aaron Rodgers finished top of the amateur leaderboard on 26 under with Canadian pro Ben Silverman.
The pro event resumes on Monday with Justin Rose leading by two shots.
England’s Rose, 42, was 15 under for the tournament after nine holes before the final round was suspended because of darkness.
Rose is seeking his first victory since the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open.
Despite his competition being curtailed, Bale – who retired from football shortly after leading Wales at last year’s World Cup finals in Qatar – loved the experience.
“The last couple of weeks have been amazing,” said the former Real Madrid forward, who plays off a two handicap.
“People giving me compliments on my game is incredible, they have put a bit too much pressure on my shoulders!
“I am a big golf fan and appreciate what these players do on the golf course. It is great to play with them, interact and watch what they do.
“Just watching him (Bramlett) strike a ball is something else. The power, the touch. He has been incredible and he is an even better guy, which is more important. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner.”
