Michael Jordan will take on Bethpage Black

Two years ago, Tiger Woods claimed that a 10 handicap would not break 100 at Oakmont Country Club in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania under U.S. Open conditions. Last year, Golf Digest decided to test Tiger's claim by placing four amateur golfers under tournament conditions at San Diego's Torrey Pines.
