Michael Jordan banned for cargo shorts?

Michael Jordan was permanently banned from Miami's La Gorce Country Club on Wednesday for wearing cargo shorts on the course and refusing to change.
Michael is an avid golfer but isn't a member of the country club, he was playing a round of golf when he was approached by club personnel.
He was asked to go to the clubhouse and change out of the cargo shorts but Michael refused and was asked to leave and to never return.
Personally I think it was a little harsh punishment by the country club by permanently banning a superstar like Michael Jordan, I know Michael loves golf and has millions of friends and fans around the world,it could cost the club some members and give them a bad name.
Jordan's reps issued the following statement regarding the incident.
"Michael did wear cargo pants.He had been there many times before and wore cargo pants previously,and had never been made aware before that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole,and at that point he did refuse to go to the clubhouse and interrupt his game and return to the club house and change. We we're not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it is their loss as Michael is a great golfer, and a great guest.
