Watson to Jack: 'He's the best, isn't he?'

Golf Channel's Rich Lerner has a story on Tom Watson in which he asks him whether he considers Tiger Woods the greatest player of all time.

Â

"I do," Watson replied. "And that's Jack's perspective too.

Â

"I was playing a round with Jack in the last couple years and said to him, Jack, he's the best, isn't he?' and Jack said, Yeah, he is.'

Â

"I actually felt a little embarrassed and then said, Jack, you weren't too bad,' and with a smile he said, I was pretty good.'"
