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

He has previously won majors at Bethpage Black, where the PGA Championship will be held, and at Pebble Beach, where the US Open is being contested.

Tiger's first PGA success came at Medinah 20 years ago, as he edged out a teenage Sergio Garcia.

Adducci has placed $100,000 bet that Woods will win the grand slam, at 100 to 1 odds. It was his 15th major triumph but first in 11 years, his fifth Masters title but first in 14 years. He has missed the cut at the last nine major tournaments he has played in, and Daly is such a longshot to win the PGA Championship, he isn't even showing up on most oddsmakers lists.

Despite the move to May, tournament organizers are keeping with the tradition of pairing the previous three major winners together for the first two rounds.

Tiger Woods' win at The Masters last month was historic for a number of reasons - one of which was a record betting payout. Meanwhile, Adducci feels confident about the upcoming PGA Championship event where Woods stands a 8-1 chance of winning according to official data. Only time will tell if it all pays off for Adducci but we'll find out soon enough with the PGA Championship coming up right around the corner. He has only skipped every tournament between majors a handful of times in his career, but he's also won when in that position before.

After being held since 1972 in the dog days of summer, the PGA Championship's move to May should ensure milder weather and more attention from US sports fans whose thoughts by August have invariably turned to American football. With summer winding down and the National Football League season about to cast its giant shadow over the North American sports market, the PGA Championship was left hanging on, with tournament organizers in a keeping-the-golf-season-alive mode.

China to impose tariffs on $60bn worth of United States goods
Nearly 2,500 items will be subject to 25 percent tariffs, while more than 2,000 others will have smaller tariff increases. The tariffs will take effect on June 1, according to a statement on the Ministry of Finance's website on Monday.

"For me the temperature change and how he will cope with getting out of the rough is going to be his major -battle", Faldo said. It was Woods' second Open victory and eighth major win overall.

Woods was expected to participate in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in May but skipped the tournament.

Shortly after teeing off on the first hole at 7:40 a.m. with the thermometer reading 43 degrees, Woods got a chuckle after the impact of his approach to the green brought up a couple of worms.

No golfer has ever won a Grand Slam in a calendar year.

"But I know when I have a week on and I'm playing well and my game is in good shape I can still contend at any level, so I've still got ambitions in the game". It's still not as bad as it was in 2009, when Mike Davis of the USGA says the maintenance crew found hundreds of shoes lost in the muck after the U.S. Open ended.

As always, Woods will be the main draw, but there are countless other intriguing story lines that could play out at the Black Course next week. With wet weather in the forecast for the next several days, all eyes will be on Woods to see how his surgically repaired back and knee hold up this week. With all due respect to the other 99, all eyes will be on one man at Bethpage State Park on Long Island and that, of course, is Tiger Woods. If he can do that, then a top-10 finish isn't out of the question.
