Michael Jordan for the Ryder Cup team?

Published Add your comment

Michael Jordan displayed his skills as a sporting polymath this weekend as the NBA icon added to his career accomplishments by sinking a shot from 50ft in his own golf tournament.

The 2014 Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational took place in Las Vegas, and the best shot of this year’s event went to the man who organises it. Jordan was joined by a host of stars at the Shadow Creek Golf Course, including Wayne Gretzky and Nick Jonas, and it took a trademark moment of brilliance from the Chicago Bulls legend to upstage his competitors.

With his ball in the rough just off the 17th green, Jordan attacked the hole with his wedge and saw the his shot roll all the way into the cup. Jordan will surely be at the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles later this year as a spectator but, with ability like this, he could be a decent addition to Tom Watson’s USA team.

Despite this sensational shot from Jordan, however, he was unable to take home the win at the weekend tournament, with a combination of Roger Clemens and Brian Urlacher able to secure overall victory.
