All eyes on Woods even if Koepka the one to beat

But the bettor who won almost $1.2 million when Tiger Woods won the Masters put a chunk of his winnings on the line for a much bigger payday. Had Woods had a cart, he might have won that tournament by four or five strokes instead going 19 playoff holes Monday against Rocco Mediate.

Tiger's Grand Slam chase will continue next weekend in Famingdale with the 2019 PGA Championship, which begins on Thursday.

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. He did so in 1930 when the U.S. Amateur, the U.S. Open, The Open, and the British Amateur made up the four majors.

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.

It's a great time to be the PGA Championship. 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. That doesn't bode well for the 43-year-old golfer who underwent spinal fusion surgery two years ago, especially at an extremely challenging course like Bethpage Black.

"If he stays healthy, the rest of the players, they know he's out there now".

Woods would be among the 10 oldest major winners should he claim another top-tier title, but Nicklaus says Woods could have another decade or more of challenging for major crowns.

ANC leading voting polls

US files plans to raise tariffs on Chinese imports
Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said China was "retreating from specific commitments that had already been made". The surprise move jeopardized talks as the two largest economies in the world appeared headed for a deal.

Woods got the eulogies of Trump' "relentless will to win, win, win".

But here's the newsflash, folks: John Daly isn't Tiger Woods.

As someone who grew up on public courses and didn't become a member of a private club until his riches piled up and his privacy took a hit, Woods connected with the unrestricted nature of the People's Country Club, as Bethpage Black is known.

"This place is just something special in so many ways", Woods said in 2009. He turned up at the Ryder Cup the following week so exhausted he didn't win a single point from four matches.Tiger also took two months off before the 2008 US Open and still won the title on one leg. It was high on champion Rory McIlroy at the 2019 Players Championship, projecting him as one of the top two contenders from the start. But the six-time major victor turned CBS analyst can not help but believe this would be an even more unlikely triumph than his resurrection between those cathedral pines.

"But he is probably at the stage of his career where he's just trying to peak for the major championships, because if he wins major championships that's kind of where he's moved up another level".

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. "I think he is going to do things we've never seen before".

Following Adducci's win, a USA Today report revealed he has a long criminal history with multiple domestic violence convictions.
