Well, it looks like the great Fred Couples has lost to another great in Michael Jordan on the course. It’s definitely surprising because we knew MJ was goo but that good? Jeez homie that’s impressive! According to givemesport.com, Fred said that MJ “has skills” and said that he excels when it comes to “winning, betting and beating me”. Both legends are good friends and Michael has been an assistant captain for the U.S. President’s Cup team a couple of times as well as being a part of an event like the Ryder Cup. I’ve always liked MJ and yes, there’s no debate, he’s the greatest basketball player of all-time because he would take Bill Russell to school and then pick him up after class too for those who say Bill Russell was the greatest. For anyone who isn’t a professional golfer to beat a hall of famer like Freddie Couples is very impressive. Then again, Michael has played golf for so long now, he’s probably a pro in his own right but then again you can say the same about NFL legend Jerry Rice who played golf throughout his whole football career and still unfortunately couldn’t make it through the Web.com Tour. The way Freddie said MJ excels at “beating me” makes it sound as if he beats him in a lot of things but knowing MJ, he’s an incredible competitor and never backs down. To me, he has as close of a place in our hearts in basketball as he does in golf. He’s been a huge supporter of golf and I have to say I’m very glad he’s a part of this great sport. You the man MJ!
