Davis Love III challenges golfers in NCAA event to listen

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

Everybody thinks Davis Love III taught Michael Jordan to play golf during the two years their careers crossed paths at UNC in the early 1980s. And Love quickly admits that he and Buzz Peterson, Jordan's roommate and Love's buddy, "got Michael started." But it seems that Jordan had perhaps a far greater impact on Love when His Airness left the Tar Heels basketball program after his junior year to join the NBA. (Chattanooga Times Free Press)
