Jordan asked to quit smoking

A city official has asked the PGA Tour to remind Michael Jordan that it is illegal to smoke at Harding Park.

A city official has asked the PGA Tour to remind Michael Jordan that it is illegal to smoke at Harding Park, the San Francisco venue for this week’s Presidents Cup.

Jordan, arguably the world’s greatest basketball player of all time, was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame last month and at US captain Fred Couples’ bidding, has been serving as his honoury assistant.

A photo of Jordan smoking his cigar, which was published in the San Francisco Chronicle, caught the attention of city officials.

Harding Park is one of more than a dozen City-owned public courses where smoking was controversially banned recently.

“I’ve already sent an e-mail to the PGA Tour director,” Recreation and Park general manager Phil Ginsburg told the Chronicle.

“It was a gentle nudge reminding them that smoking is illegal and that we would appreciate their support.”
