Someone bet $85K on Tiger to win Masters

Someone bet $85K on Tiger to win Masters One bettor is apparently feeling very confident that Tiger Woods will take home his fifth green jacket this week. The unidentified person placed an $85,000 wager on Woods to win the 2019 Masters at 14-1 odds, according to The Associated Press. Woods last won the tournament in 2005. The bet, which was made Tuesday at a William Hill sportsbook in Las Vegas, will pay out $1.19 million if Woods wins - the company's largest liability ever for a single golf wager in the United States. William Hill's director of trading, Nick Bogdanovich, told Stephen Hennessey of Golf Digest that he thought the bettor made a mistake at first.

TORONTO — Golf Town Canada's website nearly crashed Sunday from the large amount of people trying to buy the red Nike mock turtleneck shirt Tiger Woods wore when he captured his fifth Masters title.

Woods has traditionally wore red shirts in the final rounds of tournaments. On Sunday, he donned a red mock turtleneck with black pants and a black hat.

Cal Dorion, a customer-service representative/operations specialist with Golf Town, said the large demand for the turtleneck following Woods' victory at Augusta National Golf Club put a huge strain on the company's website.

Tiger starts strong with 2-under 70 at the Masters Tiger Woods carded a 2-under 70 in Round 1 of the Masters to get off to a strong start in his hunt for a fifth green jacket. 

– Tiger Woods sat down to meet with the media on Tuesday and was wearing a shirt markedly different than anything he’s worn in the past. Woods created a little bit of a stir last week when it was revealed that he would be wearing a mock turtleneck all four days of competition this week at the Masters , a

"(On Sunday), there was a little bit of difficulty with people trying to place orders because of the amount of traffic," he said. "But that's common with our sale dates that we do have.

"If we do have a flash sale or have something happening specific to that day, there's a lot of traffic during the day on our website. It's happened before where people have had a difficult time placing orders but it's not every single day that that happens."

The combination of Sunday's win being Woods' first at Augusta since '05 and his first major victory since '08 created a huge demand for the red mock turtlenecks, which retail for $100.

Dorion said all Golf Town stores had the red mock turtleneck shirts available prior to Sunday's final round but demand skyrocketed with Woods' win. Dorion said as of Monday morning only 10 red shirts remained (two large, five medium, three small) in stores nationwide, but all were in Richmond, B.C., locations.

Tiger Woods' former trainer says Tiger used to have a laborious training schedule that included 13 hours of practice

Tiger Woods' former trainer says Tiger used to have a laborious training schedule that included 13 hours of practice Tiger Woods used to work out and practice from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Though he no longer does such marathon days, it used to give him an edge on his competition, according to Hank Haney.

"We're always very, very ready for these types of events that go on in the golf world," Dorion said. "Now because this is kind of more of an iconic (thing) that Tiger does every Masters — he wears red on Sunday — we actually had this advertised before knowing well in advance that was going to be something he was going to end up wearing.

"So that's also as to why these have already been basically sold out."

Golf Town had mock turtleneck shirts available on its website Monday advertised in red but only ones in grey, navy and purple were available. Dorion said Golf Town is working to make red turtlenecks available both on its website and stores nationally as quickly as possible.

"That's because if Nike has them available, we would be able to get them as a special order brought into the store," he said.

Tiger's former caddie says Masters win 're-energizes' golf.
Steve Williams, who was on Tiger Woods' bag for 13 of his 15 major victories, thinks his former employer's win at Augusta National will do wonders for the sport. "Now that Tiger has come right back there again, winning a major championship, possibly putting (Jack Nicklaus') record in play it just re-energizes the game," Williams said, according to ESPN's Bob Harig. "It's absolutely awesome. He's the only guy who can energize the game like that. All those kids watching had to think it was fantastic. And so what he's done is a remarkable achievement. It's so positive." Williams began working with Woods in 1999, but the two split in 2011 as Tiger battled injuries.
