$85,000 bet on Tiger Woods nets $1.19M payoff

$85,000 bet on Tiger Woods nets $1.19M payoff

Tiger Woods got the attention of golf enthusiasts and celebrities everywhere when he won his fifth Masters Tournament on Sunday.

Not since 2008 had Woods finished at the top of a major leaderboard but that changed at Augusta, where the 43-year-old carded a two-under-par to reign supreme.

Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday afternoon after Woods sank his final putt to win the game.

On his way to sign his scorecard and make it official, Woods was met by a host of fellow PGA Tour golfers waiting to congratulate him, including former champions Bernhard Langer, Zach Johnson and Bubba Watson and others including Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele.

Three-time Masters victor Nick Faldo said Sunday's win provided "the greatest scene in golf forever", while 1993 US PGA victor Paul Azinger told BBC Sport numerous game's elite names would now get their wish to compete against Woods.

This is a breaking news story. The sweet moment mirrored the embrace Woods famously shared with his late father Earl after winning his first Masters in 1997. "I hope they are proud of their dad", he shared, as he opened up about the positive impact his comeback has had on his life as an athlete and a father. If that's not a bro move, then I don't know what is.

In fairness to his critics, not even Woods himself believed he would ever taste success again and as little as two years ago, he admitted to close friends that he was "done" with golf.

In the golf Arena, Tiger Woods is definitely a man who needs no introduction. The balky back that required four more surgeries, the last one out of desperation because he could barely walk, much less play golf.

Tiger Woods's historic Masters title, cheered by fans and celebrities around the world, was a big loss for sports books in Nevada and New Jersey.

"I knew back three years ago", DeChambeau said. Woods will visit two venues where he's won majors before - Bethpage and Pebble Beach - and another in The Open that will nearly always be his best chance to win a major in a given year.

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas, neighbors in south Florida who often play with Woods, expressed a mixture of excitement and trepidation.

He was disappointed, to be sure, but hardly devastated, given what he witnessed in the final round of the 83rd Masters. I couldn't sit, couldn't lay down.

"Luckily I've had the procedure where that's no longer the case and I can do this again". I really couldn't do much of anything.

Trevor Immelman is old enough to remember playing against Tiger Woods when he was at the peak of his powers.

Not trying to overpower Augusta, Tiger demonstrated an array of shots that very few players have in their bag.

Molinari, who also won the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in March, added: 'I learnt a lot from today, from the whole week.
