Behind the Scenes at Michael Jordan's Celebrity Golf Tournament

Celebrities were omnipresent at the event and the legend himself, Michael Jordan, was in great spirits during the tournament, driving around in a Carolina blue No. 23 golf cart blaring R&B tunes. NHL wonder Brett Hull must have been excited about his shots for the day, as he literally skipped his way to the 9th hole where he earned a par.

Multi-talented actor and producer Ashton Kutcher made a surprise appearance as Michael Jordan's personal caddy for the back nine on the final day of the tournament. Kutcher joked throughout the day with his foursome, which included The Office's Brian Baumgartner and NFL superstars Aaron Rodgers and Dwight Freeney. Unfortunately Jordan didn't take the top prize, but he graciously annointed the tournament winners: former baseball pitcher and sportscaster John Smoltz and World Cup Champion Brandi Chastain. Jordan and Kutcher took the loss to Smoltz and Chastain in good spirits, with Kutcher noting, "If you're not going to win, have fun."

One of the specdial highlights of the event was a celebrity-laden gala dinner. After the red carpet walk and the ensuing reception the guests were brought to their tables to commence the fabulous dinner in store for them. Celebrities were spotted grabbing multiple plates so they could fill it with selections such as braised cod from barMasa; braised veal cheeks with king trumpet mushrooms, creamy white polenta and black garlic from Sage; cheese ravioli with basil pesto, porcini mushrooms and toasted pine nuts from Sirio Ristorante; ocean water poached scallops with buckwheat noodle and sake broth from AMERICAN FISH; and Angus 300 NY Strip Steak with soy miso butter from Jean Georges Steakhouse. Celebrity chef Julian Serrano was on hand to prepare delectable dishes from his restaurant, Julian Serrano, including succulent chicken fricassee with Iberian pork pancetta, mushrooms, vegetables, cream, and sherry wine, and canelones de carne: a spanish cannelloni with chicken, beef, pork, foie gras, and béchamel sauce. Upon his arrival, Serrano paid homage to Michael Jordan's famous "jump man" pose on the red carpet, much to the delight of photographers and spectators alike.

A good time was had by all.
