    Bob is not fond of playing golf

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Bob is not fond of playing golf; nevertheless, he plays it to please his bosses.

    It's not wrong, but I'd say

    'Bob is not fond of golf, but he plays to please his bosses'.
