Michael Jordan turned 56 Sunday, and we wish the NBA legend a Happy Birthday!
While Jordan’s exploits on the court are most notable, MJ certainly has an affinity for the links. He’s said he plays 36 holes of golf almost every day. Along with that, Jordan is on track to create his own golf course this year.
This golf nut just can’t get enough! On the occasion of MJ’s latest birthday, we looked back at Jordan through the years in golf:
