After Masters' bet, man goes big on Tiger to win Slam

Woods is now 150/1 to complete the Grand Slam this year having been available at 1000/1 to complete that historic feat before the Masters and he can be backed at 12/1 to win this week.

Fans wanting to watch Tiger Woods start his quest for a 16th major title will have to be up early for the first round at the PGA Championship next Thursday.

In 2001, Woods won the Masters, which was his fourth major championship victory in a row. The term Grand Slam was coined in 1930, when Bobby Jones won the British Open, U.S. Open, U.S. Amateur and British Amateur.

According to Action Network, Adducci has placed a hefty wager on Woods winning the three remaining Majors this year to claim the Grand Slam.

The PGA Championship begins on May 16 at Bethpage Black.

"Look, the atmosphere would have been manic anyway in Tiger's next major but with the New Yorkers it will be something else and I can imagine there will be an unbelievable buzz from the moment he steps on the grounds until hopefully late Sunday evening", Faldo said.

The second PGA Tour major championship is just around the corner, and tee times for the first two rounds have been released.

"If he stays healthy, the rest of the players, they know he's out there now".

Woods is the fourth golfer in USA history to receive the Medal of Freedom honor, following in the footsteps of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Charlie Sifford, the first African-American to play on the PGA Tour. Koepka held off a noisy charge by Woods at Bellerive in St. Louis past year to win by one. Tiger Woods built a big lead in the second round under wet, miserable conditions that worsened in the afternoon, prompting a 22-year-old Sergio Garcia to say, "If Tiger Woods had been out there, it would have been called". McIlroy is a four-time major champion and a two-time PGA Championship victor.

The PGA has held mostly an August slot since 1969, though there was an odd staging of the major in February in Florida in 1971 (won by Jack Nicklaus), and a move to July to accommodate the Summer Olympics in 2016.

This is coming on the heel of the golfer's hardwork as the 43-year-old, who won the Masters at Augusta in April against all odds and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom at a White House ceremony.

The first U.S. Open here, in 2002, also was affected by weather.

Koepka's power off the tee should be of great benefit on Bethpage's Black Course, which poses a fearsome challenge and measures at a massive 7,459 yards.

The 2018 PGA Championship was played not too far outside of St. Louis at Bellerive Country Club.

"I don't know if we could count on him forever, but that momentum from the Masters into the PGA is extraordinary". He said: 'I think our expectations have to come down a notch or two for Bethpage.

Rightly heralded by the PGA of America as "one of the most celebrated public courses in the game", Bethpage will host - as things stand - every member of the world's top 100 ranked players in a field of 156.
