Michael Jordan Smokes, Tees Off at Derek Jeter’s Charity Tourney

March 18, 2015

Pretty much anything Michael Jordan does is interesting.

Here Jordan, combining a couple of his favorite pastimes—golfing and cigars—tees off while puffing on a stogie at Derek Jeter’s charity golf tournament in Las Vegas last week.

The action is from Shadow Creek Golf Club, about 15 minutes north of the Strip in North Las Vegas.

Jordan is known to frequent the club when he is in town and has a locker in the clubhouse. It’s No. 23, naturally. Here’s MJ on the tee:

Jordan, who was recently named the highest-paid retired athlete of 2014 by Forbes (four golfers made that list), was one of several celebrities to appear at Jeter’s tournament.

Ken Griffey Jr., Chris Chelios, Russell Wilson were also among the high-profile names there.
