EARLIER THIS WEEK, Michael Jordan was banned from the fancy La Gorce country club in Miami Beach because he violated the dress code by wearing cargo shorts while golfing.

In a text, Jordan told ESPN Chicago his side of the story:

“I’ve been there many times and no one told me a thing. Then all of a sudden they come to me on the 11th hole and say I can’t wear cargo shorts. Wow! The round is almost over and you want me to buy shorts now? Yeah, right!!”

Jordan finished his round in his cargo shorts (gasp!), but it looks like he won’t be allowed back at La Gorce ever again. But he doesn’t really care, “No Problem!!” Jordan said to that.

We’re sure Jordan won’t have a hard time finding a new fancy country club where he can golf in peace.
