Michael Jordan’s love for golf is well known. And it’s safe to assume that he has talked smack on the golf course as well.
One famous personality with whom he has shared the golf course is former US President Bill Clinton.
Some would have expected Michael Jordan to be on his best behavior in front of the former President of the United States
He, however, couldn’t care less. The six-time NBA champion’s fierce competitiveness knows no bounds.
Clinton, like Jordan, is an avid golfer who has hit the course with some of the game’s top players. One fine afternoon with Jumpman though had Clinton witness the legendary loud mouthing.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Jordan was in his ear the entire time, chastising him for playing from the middle tees rather than the championship tees.
"Clinton loves playing golf with athletes whenever he can. He’s played with Greg Norman, Adam Scott, Luke Donald and Michael Jordan, among others."
"Jordan coaxed him from the white tees to the championship tees by saying, ‘You’re going to play from the little girls’ tee?’ Jordan’s challenge was for Clinton to break 100; he did."
Michael Jordan tried to put Clinton to the test, but the former President had nerves of steel. He remained unfazed and gave the Chicago Bulls legend a taste of his own medicine.
Fair to conclude that Jordan doesn’t care who he trash talks. If winning is on the other end, “His Airness” will take flight and vanquish all the barriers.
