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

US President Donald Trump presents US golfer Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom during a ceremony in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington DC

"I just thought it was a typical professional Tiger Woods performance, really". He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. But if the Masters reminded us of anything, it is that Woods does not follow traditional golfing tales. It was high on champion Rory McIlroy at the 2019 Players Championship, projecting him as one of the top two contenders from the start.

San Diegan Phil Mickelson chose not to play in his hometown tour stop, the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, for the first time in his pro career. McIlroy is a four-time major champion and a two-time PGA Championship victor.

No golfer has ever won all four modern majors in the same season, although Woods held all four titles at the same time over the 2000 and 2001 seasons. The bet is a lofty one, even more so considering Adducci didn't make a sports bet ever until last month but there seems to be a method to his madness.

"But let's go down a couple of notches with our expectations".

"Tiger's determination and work ethic drove golf to new heights of athletic competition and popularity", said President Donald Trump who noted that it was his "privilege" to bestow the honor on "one of the greatest athletes in the history of sports". "As you get people excited to play, and from a fan's perspective, there was this big gap". Tiger does have what we know as the "Tiger Slam", holding all four majors but it is going to be an uphill task for him as well.

James placed his bet at William Hill and the winning money went on to become the largest payout on a futures ticket in their USA history.

Woods was the only man to break par in 2002, while just five players managed the same feat a decade ago and a three-over 73 in the final round proved enough to secure a shock success for Glover.

Proposed legislation aims to ban loot boxes in the United States
Lawmakers in Hawaii introduced four bills in February 2018 that aim to regulate the sale of video games containing loot boxes. The bill will also target PC and console games, or anything with "compulsive microtransactions" that under-18s can play.

Adducci is not a gambling person, but he got his first attempt right and now he is willing to back Tiger Woods once again.

Afternoon trump meant to present the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Woods Monday. He also finished in a tie for 38th in the 2012 Barclays at Bethpage Black, which was the first FedEx Cup event that year. "There, he made two birdies at 14 from the trees and two pars at 11 from the patrons" walkway. That's what made his week.

Tiger Woods is the hot favourite having put his long-standing back issues behind him to claim a Masters triumph few believed possible at Augusta last month.

Lee Westwood certainly concurs with his fellow Englishman on the last point.

Time is running out for Daly, who gets to play in the PGA Championship as long as he wants to because he won the event in 1991. I disagree. I think if a major is held at a course that fits Bubba's game he can win a major other than the Masters.

Tiger's Grand Slam chase will continue next weekend in Famingdale with the 2019 PGA Championship, which begins on Thursday. The future of the other ones I'm not 100 per cent sure of.
