Bryson De Chambeau had a moment to savour at Augusta as he made an ace on the 16th hole

DeChambeau aces Augusta's 16th

And now that Woods finally has that elusive fifteenth major tournament win under his belt, the only question that remains is not if, but *when* will he win his sixteenth. Bogdanovich admitted earlier this week that William Hill had to confirm it could even accept the bet. "It's a painful day for William Hill - our biggest golf loss ever - but a great day for golf".

The unidentified bettor took advantage of 14-1 odds, posted Tuesday at William Hill's outlet in Las Vegas, on Woods winning his fifth green jacket this year.

The unidentified bettor earned a record $1.19 million payout from William Hill after Woods triumphed Sunday at Augusta National following an eventful final round to claim his first major title in nearly 11 years.

Inspector General's Probe of Surveillance Against Trump Campaign Almost Completed, Barr Says
CivicForumPAC Chairman Ford O'Connell said Barr is "turning out to become President Trump's best cabinet pick". We know that the Trump campaign did receive a counterintelligence briefing in the summer of 2016.

"I didn't know, really, that this was a lot to bet on golf", he said. "But they were for real". Perhaps no one aside from Woods himself stood to benefit from his redemption more than Nike.

The person who placed the bet at a Las Vegas sportsbook will get a check for $1.19 million Monday. He said he had a feeling Woods would win because his children were watching.

Closer to home, ESPN reports that BetStars' sportsbook in New Jersey got hit for an approximate $360,000 loss on the futures market due to the tournament win.

Falcon Heavy center core toppled after landing
SpaceX didn't provide any information on the status of the booster core, including whether it will be retrieved at all. The mission from pad 39A marked the first time all boosters from a Falcon Heavy rocket were recovered successfully.

Woods entered the final round tied for second with Tony Finau, two shots adrift of leader Francesco Molinari.

Sunday's final round peaked with a 12.1/28 rating/share from 2:15-2:30 p.m. Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele all received $858,667 for finishing right behind Woods in the standings. Woods, who won the 2018 TOUR Championship for his 80 career title and ended a five-year winless drought, jumped from No. 81 to No. 13 in the FedExCup standings with his victory at Augusta National and is in position to return to East Lake in search of his third FedExCup title.

After he put an end to an 11-year wait for a major, don't expect people to bet against Tiger again soon.
