Bettor Who Won $1.2 Million On Tiger’s Masters Win Places New Bet

Tiger-mania is back in full force after he ended his decade-plus major drought by winning the Masters last month, and Woods is one of the favorites on a course where he lifted the US Open trophy in 2002. The president announced his intention to achieve this after Woods won the Masters Tournament capping a remarkable recovery from injury and years of troubles. It has only added to the hype surrounding his next assault on the majors at Bethpage, starting on Thursday, with the Golf Channel website summing up the ludicrous sense of expectation with the headline: "If Tiger wins the US PGA, we're talking Grand Slam.' As Faldo is keen to stress, that remains a rather large "if".

And no, we didn't forget about the defending champion, Brooks Koepka, who spoiled Tiger's party a year ago at Bellerive. Nobody before has won the modern-day Grand Slam that consists of winning the four current major championship in a calendar year.

The 2016 US Open victor Johnson needs to add to his single major triumph if he wants to end his career with a haul his talent deserves.

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.

Kerry Haigh, who oversees the course set-up as the PGA of America's chief championships officer, is upbeat.

Bethpage Black plays host to the 2019 PGA Championship. This year, he'll play alongside Woods and Francesco Molinari in the opening two rounds, as the trio was announced as the first featured grouping due to the fact they've won the last three majors.

These three guys are - obviously - just a handful of the players we'll see tee it up at next week's PGA Championship. Adducci is betting on it.

Tiger Woods has an 8.24am (1224 GMT) tee time, starting at the 10th hole at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York. Westwood joked. "No, I envisage him to be in contention at those two".

His dramatic breakthrough victory at the Masters brought his first major title since the 2008 US Open and made it a good year to stage a major in May.

"The atmosphere is going to be manic", six-time major victor Faldo added.

"But he is probably at the stage of his career where he's just trying to peak for the major championships, because let's face it, if he wins like a regular Tour event, there will be another Tour event, but if he wins major championships, that's kind of where he's moved up another level".

The 53-year-old Daly was able to apply for the use of a cart through the PGA of America's Americans with Disabilities Act policy, and he provided the proper information to the PGA's medical team with the request. "That was incredible. It's a tall order".

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 think that's the preconception that people got when he was in his prime, he was knocking out all the flags, holing all the putts, hitting all the fairways.
