Nike Stood by Tiger. That Bet Paid Off.

Does it sting? Sure it stings, but it's just part of the business.

Tiger Woods of the United States chews gum on the second hole during the second round of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club on April 12, 2019 in Augusta, Georgia. Magic Johnson declared "the roar of the Tiger is back!"

As well as becoming the first Italian to win a major championship, Molinari won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, his first PGA Tour title in the Quicken Loans National - a tournament hosted by Woods - and he became the first European to compile a ideal 5-0 record in the Ryder Cup. "Tiger is Tiger. He's the greatest golfer I've ever seen". According to Darren Rovell of the Action Network, DraftKings made a big bet of its own against Woods, increasing his odds Saturday, when he was two strokes off the lead, from 3 1/2-1 to 10-1. Joined by Asher and SLS casino-hotel general manager Paul Hobson, he smiled while posing for pictures holding the check for $1.275 million - his original stake plus the payout of $1.19 million. The first three all came when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII previous year. It had been 14 years since he last won the Masters and 11 years since his last major victory.

"I thought today was going to be big in how he handled it", said the 2017 PGA Championship victor.

Alton Lenderman said the parents, who were in the front seats, were not injured. "The tree fell just as they were going under it". A spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said authorities were in Hamilton and could not be reached for confirmation.

"To not only be able to play again, but to be able to win again, is something I will forever be grateful for".

Nike Inc's long-time brand ambassador Tiger Woods gave investors another reason to cheer on Monday, after the world's biggest name in golf won the Masters, pushing the company's stock higher.

Technically, Woods has a chance to match Nicklaus' mark this year by completing the Grand Slam because of his 15 career majors.

"Very few people really know what @TigerWoods has been thru to get back to this point", tweeted four-time major champion Rory McIlroy, who finished in a tie for 21st on Sunday.
