After $1.19M from Masters, bettor eyes even bigger Tiger Woods payday


The 15-time major champion will therefore command the majority of the attention as he looks to take another step towards breaking Jack Nicklaus' record for major wins. Woods ranks 58th in Round 1 scoring average but inside the top 35 in every other round.

For years, Woods was talked about in the past tense.

"We thought it was smart", Waugh said of the change in the schedule. It looks brilliant now.

In truth, Woods would have nearly certainly played a prep event but for the fatigue and soreness which inevitably followed his Georgia heroics. Anticipation now is based on results, not just wishful thinking. McIlroy is a four-time major champion and a two-time PGA Championship victor.

James Adducci won $1.2 million on his first sports bet when he wagered $85,000 on Tiger Woods to win the Masters this year. "And winning the Masters took a lot out of him. I think Bethpage is one of those kind of wonderful miracles".

"I haven't played competitively the week before a Major for a while so this will be interesting seeing how that goes".

Woods made his comments to GOLFTV, the Discovery-owned channel with whom he has an endorsement.

From his personal Twitter account, Woods stated, "It's an incredible privilege to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom".

Elsewhere, Rickie Fowler has played well during the early months of the year yet remains the best current golfer still to win a major.

The PGA Tour played the Black at par-71, and Nick Watney opened with a 65, scored 10 under overall and prevailed by three shots over Brandt Snedeker.

Woods will have annual Masters chances at Augusta National and two 2021 majors will be on courses where Woos has won majors - St. Andrews for the British Open and Torrey Pines for the US Open. The winning scores in the two national championships held there in 2002 and 2009 were three under and four under, respectively.

Is Aaron Rodgers going to be on Game of Thrones?
Rodgers made a mysterious tweet back in April about the fantasy series, using a hashtag that says "Episode 5 should be good". Anyway, Rodgers is a huge fan of the show, and he's basically been hinting all season that he had a cameo coming up.

Glover's victory in 2009 came in extremely wet conditions.

Tiger will face the same challenges as his predecessors when it comes to confronting his advancing years - an aging body, a talented new crop awaiting their turn, and the growing sense that time will prove his greatest enemy. "I haven't really got a gut feeling". His game gets elevated.

Very little attention will be placed on the defending champion ahead of the second major of the year at Bethpage. Woods did it twice. He laughed again and pulled 3-wood, which he ripped and still left the ball some 20 yards short. But if the Masters reminded us of anything, it is that Woods does not follow traditional golfing tales.

Koepka was a stroke away from a play-off with Woods at Augusta, and had he not narrowly missed numerous putts on the final day he would have been celebrating a fourth major. Westwood joked. "No, I envisage him to be in contention at those two". Just said, 'Congrats.' That was awesome, fun to see. "To make $1 million is a step".

Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world, also was a runner-up at the Masters. As remarkable as his Masters win was, he's not almost the same golfer who won the "Tiger Slam".

I've used a golf cart ever since those days, and I have two good knees, so even if I wanted to, I'm in no position to heckle Daly for using a cart.

Jordan Spieth would love to be in the mix this time around, considering what's at stake.

Recent form would suggest a struggle for Spieth. In 1949, at Hermitage Country Club in Richmond, Va., Sam Snead won the last edition contested in this portion of the calendar. The U.S. Open will be tougher. "But I don't mind that".

The 101st PGA Championship will take place this weekend, and while some say it is the least eventful of all four major championships, the attractive venue and stacked field will surely make it a memorable one. The forecast this week is for temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s, which might make this feel more like the West Coast Swing.

Bubba has performed rather well at Bethpage Black previously.

Thousands of golf fans are converging on the world-famous Bethpage Black course on Long Island. He will be the first golfer to use a cart at a major tournament since Casey Martin used one at the 2012 U.S. Open.
