PGA Tour Legend Gets Taught a Lesson After Trash Talking Michael Jordan

Xander Schauffele, with eight PGA Tour wins and an Olympic gold medal, admitted he got outplayed by Michael Jordan. Despite his major championship victory, Schauffele fell victim to Jordan's competitive spirit.

Jordan's golf skills are well-known. He often played during his time with the Bulls and Wizards. Now, at 61, he's still besting professional golfers. As the main investor in Grove XXIII in Hobe Sound, Florida, Jordan's golf game remains impressive.

Before the Memorial Tournament last week, former PGA Tour golfer Cole Knost asked Schauffele if he ever played with Jordan. Schauffele tried his best to "s--- talk" Jordan.

"...And then he beat me," Schauffele admitted. "Straight up. Embarrassing."

Jordan capitalized on Schauffele's mistakes in the final three holes. "I pancaked him on his stroke holes," Schauffele said, "and started talking s--- to him. He got quiet and focused."

Jordan then birdied the 15th and 16th holes with no strokes. "Beat me straight up," Schauffele said. "And I was like, 'All right.'"

CBS Sports caught the exchange between Schauffele and Knost. Schauffele ended the Memorial Tournament tied for eighth place. He was 1-under par for the event.

Next up, Schauffele heads to the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2. He's one of the favorites to win, teeing off at 1:14 p.m. ET on Thursday.
