Ex-NBA champ Jordan hails Tiger comeback as 'greatest ever'

Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake

And, I'll never forget sitting with my golf team watching Tiger Woods win the 2019 Masters.

National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan has paid tribute to Tiger Woods following the golfer's remarkable return to the top of the sport at the Masters last weekend, calling it "the greatest comeback I've ever seen". Just two years ago, his back pain was so bad that he thought he might never play again.

So how did Woods celebrate his first major win in over a decade?

"Dealing with his emotions, obviously he believed in himself". "I think he's going to be unbelievable whatever he does".

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.

"They got problems", Jordan said of the PGA Tour's other golfers. "His confidence is only going to build from here".

The only thing better than the jacket-shorts-Frank hat trio is the little girl in the photo could not be less impressed with the picture. You don't know what Tiger's capable of doing.

Woods earned his first major win in almost 11 years this past Sunday and his performance resulted in an outpouring of adoration from the entire sports world.

"There were so many people that were doubting him", said Michael Jordan.

N. Korea test was of ground-combat weapon, S. Korea says
A series of nuclear and missile tests by North Korea in 2016-17 sharply raised tensions as Trump and Kim traded threats of war. It isn't clear the weapon North Korea tested Wednesday was even a missile KCNA referred only to a " tactical guided weapon ".

"Being able to watch him and how in control he is of every single thing on the golf course".

"That's what he had to deal with".

But his comeback from oblivion is what makes his first major victory since the 2008 US Open so special. And then you think about the physical.

"But he did it". No one expected him to be back the way he is now.

Overnight leader, Francesco Molinari, who was playing alongside Woods on Sunday, tailed away on the back nine, eventually finishing in a tie for fifth on 11 under. To me, that's a major accomplishment. Mentally, you always think you can.

"I took two years off to play baseball, but nothing like that", Michael Jordan told David Aldridge of The Athletic.

The couple did, however, already decide on the middle name "Julian", leaving a little bit of wiggle room in case the kid isn't as excited about winning this bet as his dad was.

I'm not sure if it can be considered as the greatest comeback in the history of sports, but it's a remarkable comeback, nonetheless.
