Trending: Happy Birthday Michael Jordan

The man who changed the face of basketball was born on this day, February 17, some 49 years ago. And while Michael Jordan is still a year away from the big five-o, it's never too early to look at that golf swing. He's no slouch of course; estimated at a three handicap, Jordan is a regular at the pro-ams and a two-time Presidents Cup coaches assistant. Still, there is nothing as iconic as '90s Michael Jordan in his prime, so we decided to take a look back at one of his sweetest golf shots.
