Michael Jordan and Kevin Costner, who, along with Ken Griffey Jr., reportedly were to play against Tiger Woods in the tentatively titled "Tiger & Friends" golf event, "will not participate," according to GOLF WEEK. A spokesperson for David Falk, Jordan's agent, said that Jordan "never committed to the event and does not play in golf tournaments during the NBA season." A spokesperson at Costner's agency, Stephen Rivers & Associates, "confirmed" that the actor "will not play either." Calls to IMG, which organized the tournament, "were not returned" and there was "no word" regarding possible replacements. GOLF WEEK adds that without Jordan and Costner, the "star appeal" of the event, which is slated for taping December 11 and will air Christmas Day on CBS, is "a bit lacking" (GOLF WEEK, 11/29).
