Throughout his entire NBA career, Michael Jordan has been an avid golfer. He never dominated an 18-hole course like he did the hardwood in packed NBA arenas, but he honed his skills at every chance he got. His latest golf outing was nothing to gloat over, however, as Jordan found himself banned from a particular golf course because he refused to change his cargo shorts.
The legendary basketball player was in attendance at La Gorce Country Club in South Florida recently to enjoy a few games of golf when he was approached by club personnel who asked that he change his cargo shorts. The rules of the club state that all golfers are required to wear a collared shirt and bermuda shorts. Jordan refused to change his attire and was ultimately asked to leave the venue for good.
Jordan's PR group released a statement in regards to this matter.
"Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it's their loss – as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest.
