Michael Jordan Incredible Golf Shot Michael Jordan Sinks 55 Feet Chip Shot At Celebrity Golf Tournament
l Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational Tournament (MJCI). The MJCI is hosted by ARIA Resort & Casino at the exclusive Shadow Creek Golf Course.
Founded in 2001, the MJCI is one of celebrity golf's most popular events and has raised more than $6 million for charity.
This year's tournament will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the James R. Jordan Foundation (dedicated to strengthening families, motivating youth and ensuring high quality academic opportunities for children in under-served communities) the Nevada Cancer Institute (the official cancer institute for the state of Nevada), Cats Care - the Charlotte Bobcats' commitment to bringing positive and lasting change through social responsibility, education, fitness, and youth and family development, and Opportunity Village (a not-for-profit organization that serves people with intellectual disabilities).
The competition for day one teamed one celebrity with four amateurs in an informal scramble. Everyone was in great spirits on a beautiful day and the fans enjoyed being up close and personal with their heroes.
Jordan, to no one's surprise, pulled a few tricks out of his Brand Jordan golf bag, one being a driver the color of his alma mater North Carolina. And it was his near ace and subsequent birdie putt on 17 which vaulted his group to the top of the leaderboard along with baseball great Ken Griffey, Jr's group at an impressive -19 net for the day.
