Rory accepts M.J.'s invitation to compete in Member-Guest
By mustang6560 on 3/12/13
It looks like Rory McIlroy is adding an extra event to his pre-Masters schedule after all. The world number one accepted Michael Jordan's invitation to play in the Medalist Golf Club Member-Guest Friday.
Luke Donald, Ernie Els and Keegan Bradley have all been dropping Michael Jordan's name lately in regard to what they're learning in practice games and putting matches with the NBA great. Rory McIlroy got the call to be Michael's partner in the Medalist GC Member-Guest. When I asked Tiger Woods recently if there was one iconic athlete, entertainment star or business leader who he tapped for advice on life at the top, there was no hesitation: "M.J."

This is all very flattering to Jordan, but he wants everybody to know he is not in the golf instruction business. "This is where I become uncomfortable," Jordan said from his new home at The Bear's Club in Jupiter, Fla. "I'm not a golf coach, never will be, won't try to be."
So M.J. can't offer Rors any advice about his swing mechanics, but he can provide insights on how to deal with the pressures of being #1 — something Rory's admitted he's been struggling with lately.
