Forget it………

A group of pretty good athletes hung out while they were on vacation in Baker’s Bay in the Bahamas this week. Michael Jordan, winner of six NBA Championships and Tom Brady, four-time Super Bowl champion — quite arguably the greatest of all-time in their respective sports — got together with Keegan Bradley, who has won one major championship, and Luke Donald, who has placed in the top 10 at a TON of tournaments, teed it up for some golf, as you can see in the photo above.

(Aside: T-shirts, guys [with exception of Donald]? How do we feel about that on the golf course? I don’t really care. I was just more shocked at the sight of it since it’s become so weird to see people not wearing polos on a course. I guess when you’re at uber-uber-exclusive places, any attire flies — or you buy the right. Whichever.)

Arnold Palmer happens to be one of them — when the King talks, everyone and everything stops and you listen.

Journeyman pro Dan Olsen, a former Tour player who made 35 starts between 1989 and 2011, brought some strong allegations last Friday against Tiger Woods on the radio station 730AM The Game, claiming that the 14-time major champion was serving a one-month drug suspension. Since then, Olsen has retracted his comments, but not before practically starting an international incident.

Jack Nicklaus has been in the same scary, dark place that Tiger Woods appears to be dealing with at the moment — the chipping yips. Nicklaus, who was a guest on Golf Channel’s Morning Drive on Friday, said he endured similar short-game struggles in 1979, and he was actually putting it around bunkers because he couldn’t chip it.

Now, with Tiger’s leave of absence almost certainly extending into late March at the very least, everyone is wondering how (and even if) Woods’ ailing game will return to competitive form. Nicklaus believes Woods’ issues are mental, rather than physical or technical, per se.
