Two of the world’s greatest celebrity golfers both have ties to the city of Chicago. Bill Murray was born and raised there. While Michael Jordan has a statue of his likeness sitting in front of the United Center, home of the Bulls.

Earlier this week we heard a little bit about what it’s like to play golf with Michael Jordan when we got to interview PGA star Dustin Johnson.

“You can understand why it was so, why it’s still super competitive on the golf course, even now,” DJ said on MJ.

Also this week, Bill Murray was interviewed by a couple of guys whom some people have heard of Steve Kerr and Pete Carroll and also talked about golf with The GOAT.

During his appearance on the Flying coach podcasts, which Kerr and Carroll are doing to raise money for the rescue of COVID-19, Murray talked about many things, including filming Space jam and playing golf with Larry Bird and Michael Jordan, the similarities between sports and cinema, stories from the set of Ghost Buster, and how he started his comedy.

One of the stories he tells is that of when he lived in New York and sat in Madison Square Garden for the Knicks games, once he was there with his two children who were young at the time and Patrick Ewing ran at full speed against them to recover a loose ball and when he realized he was going to carry two small children, he pulled up short and did not follow the ball.

“The biggest person I know at the moment, stopping short … was athleticism,” said Murray.

Obviously, Kerr had previously replied that Dennis Rodman would continue.

Murray also shared how between one shoot and another he had an hour to kill on the set Space jam, he, Jordan and Bird would go to play golf.

“It was then that I realized I didn’t want to play golf with Michael Jordan. Uh oh,” said Murray. “But it was fun to play with them and it was fun to go around. It made it easier to shoot the scenes … I knew Michael a little bit, just because I was in the bull games, Larry that I got to know. It took me some time, as you probably know, but he is a delightful person. “

He also talked about how fans flock to pro-am tournaments he plays and how he once hit “about three people in an hour”.

“It was just a bad day,” he said.

Listen to the whole episode below. It’s very good stuff.
