Gary Lineker’s Amazing Story About Golf Game With Michael Jordan And Samuel L Jackson

Gary Lineker’s Amazing Story About Golf Game With Michael Jordan And Samuel L Jackson

Gary Lineker turning up at his golf club to play a round with Michael Jordan, four NBA stars and Samuel L Jackson - it sounds like the start of a bad joke or a great dream, but it really did happen.

The former England striker shared the story on twitter, explaining how his agent once called him out of the blue to say: "I've had Michael Jordan's people on the phone and he wants to play at Sunningdale."

As a member, Lineker jumped at the chance to host MJ and friends as his guests . When he and a pal rocked up at Sunningdale, waiting for them were five giant basketball players - plus Hollywood A-lister Jackson - "ambling around, putting and smoking cigars."

Lineker shared the whole unusual tale on Twitter.

Michael Jordan Is Launching A New Nascar Team With Bubba Wallace As The Driver

If there's one thing that we've learned from Netflix hit series The Last Dance it's that - as well as basketball and winning - MJ really loves golf, cigars and gambling. So no doubt he had an absolutely terrific time in Berkshire.

Lineker's chum Queeny, who proposed the wager and was on the receiving end of Jordan's "Whatever makes you feel uncomfortable" zinger regarding the stakes, thankfully didn't end up too out of pocket.

The 1986 World Cup Golden Boot winner confirmed that the Chicago Bulls legend and his pal played for a "hundred quid or thereabouts". Pretty reasonable when you consider Jordan is now worth a reported $2.1 billion. Plus an extra £100 thanks to Queeny (hey, it all counts).

Lineker also confirmed that the unique experience lived up to his expectations, confirming that the famously hyper-competitive Jordan "was delightful company" throughout the 18 holes.

No word on what score Jordan - or Pulp Fiction actor Jackson - got around in. But what a sight this star-studded eight-man party must have appeared.

Hopefully at some point in the near future we'll see the modern-day equivalent: Harry Kane, LeBron James and The Rock chewing on cigars and driving their way round an English golf course. Make it happen, universe.
