Michael Jordan on Tiger Woods: 'Greatest comeback I've ever seen'

Share

Michael Jordan described Tiger Woods Masters comeback as the "greatest ever" and added he called the golfing icon to personally congratulate him.

Williams was dumped by Woods in June 2011 - ending a 13-year relationship in which he won 72 times worldwide and claimed 13 majors.

Talking to the Atlantic, cited by TMZ, Jordan was asked about his close friend and his recent triumph on the course.

"I never thought he'd get back physically", he admitted. But he did it. "The chance to see (Tiger Woods) at that place be able to come back when everybody counted him out".

No, probably not. I'm not sure he will emulate his Masters win with another major as there are so many emerging young golfers waiting in the wings. "To me, it s unbelievable". He had to change his game; he had to change his perspective a little bit.

In regard to President Trump bestowing the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tiger Woods, one of the nation's highest civilian honors for recipients who make "meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant pubic or private endeavors", I find it a little ridiculous. Now within one victory of Sam Snead's all-time record and only three majors behind Jack Nicklaus, Jordan believes that an invigorated Woods may only be getting started as he looks to take on players half his age.

The veteran is expected to next take to the course at the Well Fargo Championship, after deciding to skip the RBC Heritage and Zurich Classic. And then you think about the physical. "But you can't answer to what your body has to deal with".

Tiger Woods' victory against all the odds was certainly the highlight of a great day's sport.

If anyone says anything along the lines of, "Hey Tiger's got a two-shot lead heading into the last two holes!" you can bet hundreds of millions of people will be gluing their eyeballs to a screen to witness what happens next and I'm glad to play a small role in that overall beast.

The reason this Masters win was more important than any other was because of what Tiger has gone through within the last nine years. It s absolutely tough mentally. You're going against guys who are more gifted physically.
