Michael Jordan was a legend on the basketball court, of that their can be no doubt. Now golf fans at Medinah are again going to be treated to the sight of the former Chicago Bull as a fully fledged Team USA hanger-onner, er…advisor. Apparently the way Air Jordan drives a golf buggy and chugs on a Cuban inspires guys like Furyk and Stricker to great things.
Davis Love confirmed that Jordan was being measured up for a suit, but sounded less than psyched at the news. "Michael's going to be hanging around with Fred [Couples] probably a lot and be an influence," Love said.
Hang on there Davis, “hanging around”? Do you mean “hanging around” like a bad smell or something else?
Love later elaborated on what Jordan can bring to the team. “One of the neatest things I ever saw in the Ryder Cup was Michael riding in the golf cart with Tom Kite. He came out to watch Freddie and I play and I thought that was one of the coolest things.”
So there it is, he likes his driving!
