NBA legend Michael Jordan is not only one of the greatest basketball players of all-time - because he's also pretty handy on the golf course.

According to former-Masters champions Fred Couples, Jordan has "got skills" on the golf course.

The 54-year-old professional golf is a good personal friend of Jordan's, and while he didn't say when number 23 beat him through 18 holes, he did confirm Jordan excels when it comes to "winning, gambling and beating me."

Jordan is famously a massive golf fan, and reportedly owns several properties on golf course developments.

He's got one in Jupiter, Florida on Jack Nicklaus' Bear's Club estate and another near Charlotte, North Carolina close to the Peninsula Club in Cornelius, North Carolina.

He loves to hang out at high profile golf events like the Ryder Cup and reportedly has had a handicap as low as four.

He lives in the North Carolina area as he is the owner of the local NBA team, the Charlotte Bobcats.
