“JR Smith loves playing golf” – is a sentence, you can say… And it’d be correct.
According to an interview with Golf Digest, the Knicks guard took up the sport 5 years ago after playing in a Moses Malone Charity Tournament in Houston. During the season he spends a lot of time at simulators, practicing his game & impressively… He has played every single day since the regular season has finished!
Smith also states that he’s tight with some of the biggest players in the game. “I’m good friends with Lee Westwood, Bubba, Rickie Fowler. A few of the top hitters.”
So, naturally, after this news broke… Marcus Jordan, son of arguably the greatest golfer to play professional basketball in Michael Jordan, took to Vine to challenge JR to a game of stick… Bragging that PGA Tour pros in former Major winner Keegan Bradley & former World Number One Luke Donald have been in his corner, preparing him for the potential game.
Smith in his interview also stated:”I don’t have a hole-in-one. I’ve made a few eagles, but not a hole-in-one”
That makes this video challenge by Marcus a little bit more ominous.
This could go down as the greatest moment in the history of sport…
