Wednesday, news broke that Michael Jordan had been banned from La Groce Country Club in Miami Beach due to not being in proper dress code on the golf course. Jordan was reportedly wearing cargos instead of the required golf shorts.
Jordan responded to the story Thursday, admitting that he did indeed refuse to change his attire:
“I’ve been there many times and no one told me a thing,” Jordan told ESPN Chicago by text. “Then all of a sudden they come to me on the 11th hole and say I can’t wear cargo shorts. Wow! The round is almost over and you want me to buy shorts now? Yeah, right!!”
Regarding the golf course’s decision not to invite Jordan back, he had this to say:
No problem!!” Jordan replied.
Rules are rules, and if Jordan chooses not to abide by them the golf course is within it’s rights to decline to invite him back. Jordan will most likely have no issue finding a new course to attend.
