Video: Xander Schauffele Says It Was 'Embarrassing' Losing 3 Holes to Michael Jordan

Xander Schauffele had the pleasure of walking the green with Michael Jordan, but he became one of the many whose trash-talking against the NBA's GOAT backfired against them.

Schauffele recounted a story to Colt Knost of CBS Sports on how Jordan beat him after getting some motivation from his barbs.

"I did my best version of [trash talking] and then he beat me, straight up, which is embarrassing," Schauffele said. "In the last three holes, yeah. I pancaked him on his stroke holes and I started talking s--t to him. He got all quiet, focused and then birdied like 15-16 no strokes, beat me straight up.
