MJ on Tiger - 'Greatest comeback I've ever seen'

Eamon's Corner Tiger Woods schools PGA Tour young guns at Masters

And Jordan readily admits that what Woods accomplished with his one-shot Masters' victory in the wake of all those back surgeries, professional setbacks and two crushing bouts of personal humiliation, was unprecedented.

Jordan, a Naismith Hall of Famer and six-time National Basketball Association champion, left the sport for two years after winning three straight titles, then returned and won three more. To me, it's unbelievable.

"I m pretty sure he questioned himself, whether he could get it back, and he had to put a lot of work in".

It takes a GOAT to know another, they say - so it isn't much of a surprise that Michael Jordan, known as the greatest in a sports he left 16 years ago, was closely watching his friend Woods defeat the odds and complete a comeback story which he deems even more impressive than his own.

Jordan told The Athletic he watched Woods in the final round Sunday with former world No. 1 Luke Donald. Fans around were cheering, but Phelps mirrored Woods' emotions after the 15-time major champion nearly made a hole-in-one as the ball stopped just 3 feet from the hole. "But you can't answer to what your body has to deal with".

Such was the case this past weekend when Tiger Woods won the Masters golf tournament.

Eriksen: I must be one of the luckiest guys on the planet
City won Wednesday's second leg 4-3 on the night, but Tottenham prevailed on away goals after winning the first leg 1-0 last week. It was an important goal but the main point today was to qualify for the semis". "We have to prepare and recover properly".

Anyway, so he found himself at the top of the leaderboard with only two holes to go and the crowd became only the more aware of what was to come.

"You rely so much on the mental toughness", Jordan said.

"I not only think, I know he will", Daly said, adding "It's just destiny".

"You have so many things you can draw upon, and the other guys don't have the same".

Another thing I noticed was that he saved that first reaction off the course for his family; fans were reaching over the string barriers reaching for high-fives, but he just pumped his fists until he found his son, who was not alive the last time he won a major tournament, and picked him up for a big bear hug. "You can think about the physical". "From then on it was him trying to figure it out". "His confidence is only going to build from here".
