The GOAT Jerry Rice called into “Joe, Lo & Dibs” on Monday morning to share his perspective on Tiger Woods’ Masters triumph the day prior. Suffice it to say that Jerry is thoroughly impressed.

“I think it’s really the greatest comeback ever…”

The Masters win was Tiger’s 15th major overall and his first since June 2008 when he captured the US Open in San Diego.

“To see what he accomplished yesterday, I mean, this is going to go down in history,” Rice added on 95.7 The Game. “Now five green jackets — I think Jack Nicklaus, he has six. Majors, 15 — I think Jack Nicklaus, he has 18.”

“Now everyone is back on the bandwagon. I never jumped off the bandwagon. I felt this guy is the ultimate competitor. He’s only going to get better. He’s going to continue to  work and there’s more to come from Tiger.”
