M.J. comes off the bench

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Talk about finding a fill-in. When Canada’s high priest of hoops, Steve Nash, had to pull out of the inaugural Mike Weir Charity Classic, tournament organizers scored a slam dunk replacement. “His Airness,” Michael Jordan, will tee it up Monday at Glen Abbey Golf Club, in the kickoff to this week’s RBC Canadian Open. For Jordan, it will be a scouting opportunity too – and not for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats team of which he is a part-owner. Jordan will serve as one of Fred Couples’ assistant captains of the U.S. Presidents Cup team in October.
