I can't really blame the man. Woods had one of the greatest downfalls in all of sports after his marriage collapsed in epic fashion, and he didn't win a single major event for over a decade. But he did it. The only person who has more is Sam Snead who has 82.

"I took two years off to play baseball, but nothing like that", Jordan told The Athletic of Woods' comeback.

In 1997, his first full year on the professional tour, Tiger compiled the largest win-margin while also becoming the youngest to win the Masters Tournament at 21 years old, while I sit writing this at 23 and nowhere near a major title, but that's another story.

But, as Jordan said, Woods likely drew on his lifetime of experience to keep his cool under pressure as others began to close in on his lead at the Masters. But he took it head-on.

When Tiger was embraced by his children and his mom after the last hole, we recalled a similar moment when he won his first Masters 22 years ago, with his late dad being present, when Tiger was a 21 year-old kid who destroyed the field by 12 strokes, still the record for margin of victory at the Masters. "To me, it s unbelievable". Woods made his TV debut on The Mike Douglas Show in 1978.Not only did the little boy show off his short game, but he took a big practice swing with his driver that also wowed the audience and anchors. Mentally, you always think you can.

All of that seemed to build to the past week at Augusta National, a course Woods previously won on four times.

"Dealing with his emotions, obviously he believed in himself".

Jordan added that Woods confidence will be soaring and that should translate into more victories.

"I think he's gotten over the hump. The fact that he can pick this up and go with it, is incredible to me", his mom said proudly.While golf seems to be a hole-in-one, his dad said there are other sports in his skill set. And then you think about the physical.

"You don t know what Tiger is capable of doing".
