Mark Slotkin & Michael Jordan

I had the pleasure of playing a round of golf with Michael Jordan and two other scratch players. We had an individual 18 hole match, playing even as 5 handicaps. Ultimately, my team won one up on the 18th hole and Michael paid me in three crisp $20 bills. Michael shot 76 and I shot 75.

Naturally, I still have them as they are autographed. One thing that struck me about Michael was that he was nattily dressed. He was impeccable with his color coordination and his straw hat. He was just so cool. His demeanor was calm, confident and very collected. It’s an experience that I would someday like to relive.
