While in school in the early 1980s at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, three-time All-American golfer Davis Love III and UNC basketball player Buzz Peterson introduced the game of golf to Peterson's roommate...a guy by the name of Michael Jordan. While a widespread legend has it that Love gave Jordan his first lesson, that is not exactly true. Rather, Jordan tagged along with Peterson and Love to the course, and became interested in the game. However, Jordan’s interest at first was more like a Dean Smith “Four Corners Offense” than a patented Air Jordan slam dunk. Jordan would hang around the course driving golf carts and riding along with friends, before eventually trying a putt or a drive or two, and then eventually, the game for the first time.
