Obama pretty teed off at Jordan after remarks

President Barack Obama says Michael Jordan should focus on running his NBA franchise rather than criticizing his golf game.

Obama responded Monday to Jordan’s comments that the president was a bad golfer by telling Wisconsin radio station WJMR the former NBA star “wasn’t very well informed about this.”

Obama says Jordan is a better golfer, but added, “Of course, if I were playing twice a day for the past 15 years, then that might not be the case.”

Jordan, who says he’s never played with Obama, recently told Back9Network he’d be willing to play with the president but “he’s a hack. Man, I’d be all day playing with him.”

In the radio interview, Obama quipped that Jordan “might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats - or maybe the Hornets.”
