After appearing on GOLF’s Subpar podcast, Bradley shared the story on how he and Jordan became such great friends and how Bradley still can’t believe he regularly hangs out with his childhood idol.

However, when the two get out on the course, the friendship is barley noticeable as Jordan reverts to his NBA mindset and trying to be anyone is he competing against.

As documented in the ten part series The Last Dance that aired on ESPN in the spring, Jordan loves to golf and throw some money on each round and Bradley joked that when he doesn’t want to go to the bank to withdraw some money, he asks Jordan to play a round with him.

Just like in his NBA days, Jordan tries and knock Bradley off his game by trash talking but the veteran golfer knows that you cannot talk back to Jordan because that he when he has you right where he wants you.
