The Tottenham Hotspur striker has been a keen amateur golfer since childhood and will take part in the Icons Series in New Jersey later this month, after playing England’s final Nations League fixture against Hungary on Tuesday night.
Kane has a scratch handicap and will compete in the Ryder Cup-style tournament alongside other footballing greats including Liverpool midfielder James Milner and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, as well as other sports stars like cricketers Brian Lara and Ricky Ponting, as well Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and boxer Canelo Alvarez.
The 28-year-old, who at 50 goals is just three behind Wayne Rooney’s all-time England record, was keen to playdown his ability in comparison with professionals but refused to rule out the dramatic career change at some stage in the future.
‘I think that’s a long way away — but never say never,’ he added. ‘I’m way off where the pros are at the moment, I know that for sure. I’m just concentrating on football. Golf is a great hobby to have to get away from football.’
Discussing his current day job, Kane sought to praise both of his current managers, lauding the impact Gareth Southgate and Antonio Conte have had on England and Spurs respectively since taking on their roles.
‘I can’t speak highly enough of Gareth,’ Kane said. ‘I had him with the Under 21s and then with the senior team. He understands what the England team needs to be successful. We have been one of the most successful England teams in the past 50 years or so. So we are on the right track.
‘The plan is to be get back [for pre-season] on July 8 and head to Korea with the boys. I get on really well with [manger] Antonio Conte in the time he was there and I’m looking forward to next season and what’s to come.’
