AIR JORDAN AND TIN CUP REPORTEDLY OUT AS FRIENDS FOR TIGER

          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).
