Tiger Woods to Get Presidential Medal of Freedom From Trump

Masters Ratings Early Start Hurts Final Number But CBS Spins Positively

Golf has a lot more going for it than it knows.

His excitement level picked up this weekend.

A lucky punter who supposedly placed his first ever sports bet won a tidy sum of AUD $1.8 million after picking Tiger Woods to win the Masters. For the first time in a career that's been marked by the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, Tiger Woods had to piece together a come-from-behind victory at a major.

"Lo and behold, I won a tournament coming from behind which I hadn't done in the first 14". It was the largest payout the sports book ever paid out for golf. "When I said how much I was looking to bet, it just kind of was laughable".

"Well, he's the President of the United States", Woods said. Exceptionally rare, William Hill, as of Monday afternoon, was offering 125-to-1 odds for Woods to complete the grand slam.

'What was he thinking?': Tiger Woods in insane moment with security guard
McIlroy played the par 5s in even - two bogeys, one par and an eagle on No. 8 that got him under par, but only briefly. Justin Hading, who surged to the top of the leaderboard for much of Round 1, was still in the hunt at six-under par.

"This is a story for the ages", Joe Asher, chief executive officer of William Hill's U.S. operations, said in a statement. "A day later, though, I'm really happy about it".

He will be rewarded with a new Nike deal worth in excess of US$200 million, according to leading brand experts who claim he could start closing the gap again on Michael Jordan as the wealthiest sportsman in history. "We've lost big bets before and we'll lose them in the future". It's a fantastic story.

The tee-time adjustment made the final round a harder sell for golf enthusiasts in the western-most time zones, but an encore presentation that followed on the heels of the live broadcast helped claw back a fair amount of those lost impressions.

He said he had a feeling Woods would win because his children were watching. "Trump tweeted shortly after Woods sank a short putt to secure his 15th major title".

"Because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE, I will be presenting him with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM!"
