The NBA and golf have joined forces for decades now. Arguably the biggest name in basketball history, Michael Jordan is an ardent golf fan. Jordan’s love for the sport knows no limit and living up to that, he even has his own golf course with state-of-the-art technology and amenities at service. Although, getting there is no easy feat. Only a select handful of individuals are allowed to be there. However, another 28-year-old star from the Chicago Bulls has been making a lot of good noise in the business.

Zach LaVine of the Bulls recently raised $10 million from Verance Capital. LaVine owns a Club and apparel startup named Swag Golf and he has recently bagged a $10 million round. What’s even more impressive about this feat is that the young baller has done it all by himself. The 2x All-Star is a massive golf fan as well and he recently competed in the American Century Championship. However, it is worth noting that LaVine has shown no interest in joining the TGL.
