MJ is crazy about golf, he absolutely loves the sport. And can you blame him? After his amazing run on the basketball court he needed another challenging sport were he could compete. MJ is a super competitive guy that needs to be challenged every single day, and golf really fits that need for him. MJ is such a golf nut that his company is manufacturing golf shoes and apparel.
MJ Golf Dream Team
MJ used to play 36 holes of golf before his every game at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
Trash Talked Bill Clinton
One time when MJ was playing against the former president Bill Clinton, Jordan said “You’re going to play from the little girls’ tees?” They both laughed off the insult and then Clinton played with Jordan from the blue tees or the tips.
Jordan was playing in a event in Reno when a fan bet him $500 that he wouldn’t hit the green. Jordan excepted the fans bet and he hit the green and collected.
$1.25 Million Loss
MJ has been known as quite the gambler. He even got in trouble with the NBA for betting on his games. This story just shows how much money these guys have though. Back when Jordan was new to the game he lost $1.25 million to his friend in golf in a 10 day span.
MJ and Sergio Garcia raced each other at St. Andrews
Tiger Woods Bet
Tiger bet MJ that he couldn’t shoot under a 92 at Bethpage Black. MJ accepted the bet and won. That just proves how good of a golfer he is because that course is one of the most difficult golf courses in the world.
MJ is such a golf nut that he got married to his second wife on a golf course in Florida.
