Michael Jordan is good at a lot of things: basketball, building apparel empires, smoking cigars. But if there's one thing he absolutely needs to work on in the future, it's the way he dresses on the golf course.

A couple months after Jordan wore an awful getup to the Ryder Cup that caused a minor stir, the greatest player to ever lace up a pair of high-tops is back in the news again for, you guessed it, the way he was dressed on the course.

According to the New York Post, Jordan showed up at La Gorce Country Club a high-class course in Miami Beach, Fla. wearing a pair of cargo pants for a round of golf.

No big deal, right? On most occasions, wearing a pair of cargo shorts for a round at your local muni track is acceptable, but when you're playing at a swanky club in Miami, you're expected to wear a pair of khakis that don't have baggy pockets. Apparently Jordan didn't get the memo and showed up to the course sporting cargos anyway. That didn't sit too well with the membership.

"Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course," said a spy. Jordan's multipocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts. But when 6-foot, 6-inch Jordan was offered a chance to change outfits, he demurred.

"He was given the chance to change but he didn't want to," a source said. The source added that Jordan, who was enjoying a round at the club with one of its members, played on anyway. The source added that members complained about Jordan breaking the rules and, "He won't be invited back."

A rep for Michael Jordan told the Post that, "Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it's their loss as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest." The club did not respond for comment.

Honestly, I'm a little surprised the club didn't let Jordan's fashion faux pas pass. After all, we're talking about Michael freakin' Jordan and, as you can see from the photo, he's been known to wear cargo shorts on the course in the past. If he's done it before, chances are good he's going to keep doing the same thing in the future, because, well, he's Michael Jordan.

But hey, if a club has rules, everyone has to follow them even if the rule breaker happens to be a living legend. Next time bring a pair of Bermuda shorts to the course, Mike.

banned for bacon neck.

He should be banned for that stupid hat.

mnchiefsguy 11-28-2012 07:46 PM

MJ should just buy the club, then he could wear whatever he wanted.

RedDread 11-28-2012 07:47 PM

Holy crap, how effing far does the rod up your ass have to be to report Michael Jordan for wearing cargo shorts. That sounds like a guy I want to hang out with.

HemiEd 11-28-2012 07:56 PM

Everyone knows that you can't wear ****ing Cargo shorts at a Country Club, including Michael Jordan. He obviously thought he was above the rules.

You don't ban the greatest of all time. He bans you.

I agree with Mike on this one. He had to check-in, they should have said something then. To interupt the man with several holes to go is nonsense.

Stuck-up rich people on a power trip.

Inmem58 11-28-2012 08:04 PM

This is just dumb

Bump 11-28-2012 08:06 PM

what a bunch of ****ing pillowbiters. Especially the people who were offended by it and had to go tell on him.

They should be punched in the face, by me. I really really really want to do it.

Not necessarily. I've played plenty of times and not checked in. Just joined the group at the tee or practice green.
