Trump to honour Tiger Woods with Presidential Medal of Freedom

Trump Says He Plans to Award Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom

James Adducci holds up his winning ticket after winning more than $1 million betting on Tiger Woods winning the Masters, Monday, April 15, 2019, in Las Vegas.

Moreover Woods is not the only golfer who is going to be rewarded with this prestigious honour as players including Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus were also acknowledged with the medal in the mid-2000s consecutively. The 39-year-old Wisconsin day trader had a premonition so strong that Woods was going to win the Masters that he made his first sports bet - a whopping US$85,000 ($125,864) in cash at 14-1 odds. Adducci's win represents the largest golf payout ever for sportsbook operator William Hill US.

Tiger Woods' win at the Masters is still a hot topic. "What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!" he added later.

The golf demographic is wealthier and better-educated than other sports fans, so TV ratings are valued more highly because hey're more apt to turn into sales, even of big-ticket items, said Neal Pilson, president of Pilson Communications and former president of CBS Sports.

When Woods was immobilised by back pain two years ago, Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel noted that Harold Varner III was the only black golfer on the PGA Tour - in a sport, Bianchi said, that was "whiter than the checkout line at Banana Republic".

Measles outbreak causes health hysteria
Such legal strides must be taken on the state and national level if this concerning epidemic of vaccine hesitancy is to end. Other affected states include Washington with 36 measles cases, MI with 34 cases, California with 16 and New Jersey with 11.

Ronn Torossian, chief executive of NY public relations firm 5WPR, estimated Woods' worth increasing by US$20 million this year.

Adducci says he plans on using his winnings for investment opportunities and to pay off outstanding debt. He described the experience of watching the tournament as a "roller coaster". He went to two different sportsbooks before he settled on the SLS Casino.

"This is a story for the ages", Asher said. "When I said how much I was looking to bet, it just kind of was laughable. I know I have the green jacket on but I think it's going to take a little bit of time for it to sink in".

"To see Tiger win a major tournament for the first time in front of his kids meant a lot to me".

Is it wrong that I, along with so many others, rooted our hearts out for Tiger this weekend?
