Jordan acquitted himself quite well with a round of 86 from the tips at Bethpage Black, and later that year, we asked him to expound on how to maximize one's competitiveness in a November feature story.

The accompanying photo shoot with legendary photographer (and frequent Jordan chronicler) Walter Iooss Jr. proved to be entertaining as well, as evidenced by the video below.
