During a recent trip to the ritzy 18-hole course at La Gorce Country Club , MJ was asked to change his cargo shorts on the 12th hole, but refused. The club’s rules clearly state all golfers are required to wear a collared shirt and bermuda shorts while playing.
It seems as though celebs aren’t excused from the rule. Jordan was reportedly banned from returning for not changing.
The NBA legend’s PR group released this statement:
“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.
