Michael Jordan's all-exclusive golf club in Florida might soon have an elite member, who is widely recognised as one of the best golfers in the world. Phil Mickelson, who is on the move from California to Florida, is interested in joining Michael Jordan's elite golf club in the near future.
A three-time Masters Tournament winner, Phil Mickelson joined The Dan Patrick Show on Monday where he confirmed that he is actually in the process of the joining Michael Jordan's golf club in Florida. "(It) is really a cool place,” Mickelson said. “He did an exceptional job there.”

Phil Mickelson's move from California to Florida was confirmed earlier this year as it was reported that Mickelson had bought a place in Florida in December 2019. Mickelson and his family planned to move after his son, Evan, graduated from high school. “Fortunately I know a number of members there,” Mickelson added. “My wife and I just bought a lot fairly close to there, it’s only about 10-15 minutes away, so it will be a great place to play and practice.” The 44-time PGA Tour played with Michael Jordan several times in the past. He said during the talk show that he was excited to play with Jordan again.
Michael Jordan's golf course, The Grove XXIII, was opened in 2019 near Hobe Sound, Florida. The elite golf course is invite-only and it is known that Michael Jordan wants less the 100 members in his club to maintain the exclusivity of the golf course. Michael Jordan's golf course is just a 10-minute drive from Medalist Golf Club where Tiger Woods practices.
As mentioned above, Mickelson is a 44-time PGA Tour winner. The 49-year-old has won 5 Major Championships so far in his career - 3 Masters Tournament, 1 PGA Championship and 1 The Open Championship.
