Houston lawyer dominates on the golf course
Not many people can say they have beat Michael Jordan at an athletic competition. Houston attorney Nakia Davis holds these bragging rights! The Beck, Redden & Secrest attorney has played golf with Michael Jordan 18 times. The total game score: Davis 17, Jordan 1.
Before practicing law, Davis played on the Ladies Pro Golf Association FUTURES Golf Tour. Davis met Jordan through a mutual friend and then re-connected with the star at an event sponsored by the Jackie Robinson Foundation. Knowing of the pro basketball player’s competitive spirit, Davis challenged him to a round of golf, confident she would win. Needless to say, Jordan was hooked, and 18 games later the duo plans to continue the friendly competition.
Another interesting fact about Davis’ golf career - before Tiger Woods was a household name, they were in the same training circle of young up-and-comers.
