Michael Jordan in golf tournament while Tiger is on the basketball court
Whatâ€™s wrong with these pictures?
Michael Jordan is holding a golf trophy, and Tiger Woods is bouncing a basketball.
Woods, the No. 1 golfer in the world, has been a Magic season ticketholder for many years. He sat courtside during Orlandoâ€™s two home NBA Finals games against the Lakers last week, and he will likely be sitting there Sunday for Game 5. L.A. needs one victory to win its 15th NBA title.
Meanwhile Jordan, who won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls, paired up with â€œSexybackâ€ singer Justin Timberlake to play in the Golf Digest U.S. Open Challenge at Bethpage Black Golf Course in Bethpage, N.Y. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger shot an 11-under par 81 to win the challenge and to set a record in the two-year event. Before the competition, Woods called Roethlisberger and told the two-time Super Bowl championship quarterback that he wouldnâ€™t break 100 on the course.
Roethlisberger proved Woods wrong, and Jordan and Timberlake also broke 100, finishing five and seven strokes behind Roethlisberger, respectively.
Woods gets his turn on the Bethpage Black course when he begins defense of his 2008 U.S. Open title on Thursday.
