Trending: Happy Birthday Michael Jordan

February 17, 2012

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.

His form wasn't quite as good back then, and it might not be a hole-in-one like he had when playing against Larry Bird and Bill Murray in Space Jam, but as you can see, the result--and his fashion sense--are vintage MJ.
