Bettor wins $1.19 million after Tiger victory

Woods also set a record for the longest gap between Masters triumphs, the 14-year spread one year longer than the old mark set by South African Gary Player from 1961 to 1974.

Three-time Masters victor Nick Faldo said Sunday's win provided "the greatest scene in golf forever", while 1993 US PGA victor Paul Azinger told BBC Sport numerous game's elite names would now get their wish to compete against Woods. In 2017, he underwent a spinal fusion, his fourth back surgery, with hopes of alleviating the pain. Bettors can get 5-to-1 odds on Woods to tie Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 major titles (he's now at 15) and 10-to-1 to break the record.

That's why Woods celebrated his 15th major like never before - fist pumps without a club in his hand, because he couldn't help himself walking off the 18th green.

Nicklaus also spoke to the Golf Channel on Sunday, comparing the 43-year-old Woods' victory to his own as a 46-year-old in 1986, and making clear he doesn't think his record is safe.

"We've had more calls about Tiger Woods memorabilia in the past 24 hours than we had all previous year", one of the owners of the auction site Ryan Carey said.

Who can ever forget this day? "What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!"

On Sunday he finally realised the dream of adding to his major wins by winning the Masters by one stroke and collecting his fifth green jacket at the Augusta National.

"The golf course has always had a special place in my heart", Woods said after winning the 2000 U.S. Open.

He tapped in for bogey and a 2-under 70, and the celebration was on.

"WOOOOOOO!" Woods screamed as he headed for the scoring room with chants of "Tiger!".

"I knew back three years ago", DeChambeau said after the final round, which he began with double-bogeys on 10 and 11. I couldn't sit. Couldn't lay down. I just listened. He was saying some things that I can't really repeat here.

A collector struck at the ideal time to own a piece of Tiger Woods history, winning an auction Saturday to own Woods' backup putter from 2000. Fenway Park posted the news on the scoreboard. Phil Mickelson's age (48) struck me this year at the Masters. Whether he can dominate it again is still to be determined.

At FanDuel's sports book, 21 percent of the futures bets placed on the Masters were on Woods to win it all, a slanted total that resulted in a net loss of more than $1 million. "I'll just play in the tournaments and I'll be fully invested and committed to playing and trying to win". "This stuff is hard". He lost his health to back problems.

Now the comeback is truly complete.

"A big "Well done" from me to Tiger". "I am so happy for him and for the game of golf".

Getting to 18 is only easier because Woods is one major closer, a conversation caddie Joe LaCava said they have shared.

It is not hyperbole to say that the rest of this year's majors run through the Cat.

"You know, I felt like I just flushed it coming home, which was a nice feeling". "But now we can start talking about 16".
