Sports Gambler Wins $1.19 Million On Tiger Woods' Masters Victory

Outraged, even. We all assume this is Tiger's fifth green jacket because we surmise that a place so chock full of old-money wealth as Augusta National would have the decency to outfit dudes with new jackets every time they win the club's signature event. "We have so many bets coming in".

The hangover, however, isn't among Woods' legion of devoted followers.

Schauffele scored 4-under-par 68 and tied Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka at 12 under.

Last year's green jacket recipient, Patrick Reed, finished 15 under par in 2018.

But with a surgically-fused back that is allowing him to generate nearly as much power as 20 years ago it would be fearless to bet against a man who has already done the seemingly impossible time and time again.

Tiger Woods hugs his family after winning the Masters golf tournament Sunday, April 14, 2019, in Augusta, Ga. Perhaps no one aside from Woods himself stood to benefit from his redemption more than Nike.

All those moments built to Sunday, when Woods was once again his old familiar dominating self. Now, he's the first Masters champion to earn more than $2 million.

That's the sting losing ought to bring to everyone who had a chance to beat Woods on Sunday and didn't.

The measure was reportedly proposed in November in response to a migrant caravan that travelled from Central America to the US-Mexico border.

FanDuel confirmed over $3 million in losses, with over $1 million a result of a promise to participants in a contest that all would get a refund if Woods won. DeChambeau went 66-75-73-70, his first round giving him a share of the lead before a bogey-double bogey turn in Friday's second round started a downhill slide. And as he holed the putt that brought to an unlikely end a drought that few had foreseen and even fewer foresaw being broken, the 15-time major victor crept one step closer to Jack Nicklaus' unrivaled 18 titles.

Yet while Americans love a comeback, some experts question whether hoisting another Masters trophy will lead to more endorsement deals for Woods.

Being in the middle of a golf gallery when Tiger Woods is in contention is a insane experience, but the fans, er, patrons, were absolutely nuts Sunday with shouts of "TIGER" rumbling through the Augusta layout every few seconds.

It rates among the best because Woods has meant so much to so many in a sport he ruled for so long.

That's why Sunday's victory capped one of the greatest comebacks in sports history from injury.

Other US Sports stars were quick to join in on Twitter. The German golfer was succeed the next year by Jack Nicklaus with a one-stroke that caped the legend's then record breaking 18th professional major win.

A story that defies logic both emotionally and statistically: Tiger Woods, the 2019 Masters champion.

They're all annoying nuisances now. In maybe his greatest feat yet, Tiger climbed the biggest mountain at a time and an age when most are hanging out at base camp. "So, you know, we're creating new memories for them, and it's just very special".
