Michael Jordan: Tiger Woods’ comeback ‘greatest I have ever seen’
From one sporting legend to another, NBA superstar Michael Jordan has hailed Tiger Woods’ comeback win at the Masters as the “greatest ever”.
Jordan also revealed that he had called Woods personally to congratulate him.
“To me it is the greatest comeback I have ever seen,” Jordan told The Athletic.
“I never thought he’d get back physically. He didn’t think he’d get back physically. But he did it. No one expected him to be back the way he is now.
“He’s probably the only person who believed he could get back. To me, that’s a major accomplishment. To me, it’s unbelievable.”
Jordan was particularly impressed with how Woods has been able to bounce back physically following all of his injury troubles.
“Mentally, you always think you can. But you can’t answer to what your body has to deal with,” he added.
“I’m pretty sure he questioned himself, whether he could get it back, and he had to put a lot of work in. But he took it head-on. He had to change his game; he had to change his perspective a little bit.
“Dealing with his emotions, obviously he believed in himself. But until you put that into action, sometimes it’s a struggle.”
Jordan added that with Woods’ confidence now at a high, we can all expect more victories from him.
“I think he’s gotten over the hump. I think he’s going to win more. It’s tough mentally. It’s absolutely tough mentally. And then you think about the physical. I’m elated.
“You don’t know what Tiger is capable of doing.”
