There are other variations, of course. "Your spectacular achievements on the golf course, your triumph over physical adversity and your relentless will to win, win, win; these qualities embody the American spirit of pushing boundaries, defying limits and always striving for greatness". Which major will he win?

"I have osteoarthritis so bad I can walk up a hill, I just can't walk down one", Daly said in an interview last week.

Maybe it helps that the PGA Championship is no longer the last major of the year, in August when temperatures approach triple digits and the season already feels long. I think it maybe hindered my competitiveness towards the end and I got a little bit exhausted. I don't think there's any question of that. Woods now has 15 major titles in his career, including four PGA Championships. He needed to not just believe he could do it again, he need to know it. 'At Bethpage we have to factor in the cool weather - and how will he cope getting the ball out of the rough? The difference between him and everyone else is that he played smarter and thought more clearly.

"Augusta is the flawless place for him to win more majors".

The PGA Tour played the Black at par-71, and Nick Watney opened with a 65, scored 10 under overall and prevailed by three shots over Brandt Snedeker. "He's not making it easy on himself with nothing competitive between the two majors". It's a big reason for his success at places like Firestone and Torrey Pines.

The old phrase in gambling says to quit while you're ahead but instead, Adduci is going to double down by betting that money on Tiger to complete the Grand Slam starting with the upcoming PGA Championship.

"Obviously Tiger has impact, sort of the moon landing - it's not golf, it's 'Where were you when?' kind of stuff", said PGA of America chief executive Seth Waugh. Where he hasn't fared well is proximity from the rough (currently outside the top 200).

While the U.S. Golf Association has traditionally presented penal Open courses, the PGA of America is generally more forgiving, if not accommodating with its layouts. Westwood joked. "No, I envisage him to be in contention at those two". Woods is the favorite to win the tournament at 8-1, and after his big win at the Masters, it's likely he'll continue to be among the favorites throughout the majors this year.

Donald Trump is presenting Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Monday at the White House. Tiger does have what we know as the "Tiger Slam", holding all four majors but it is going to be an uphill task for him as well. The $100,000 bet is the most extravagant thing he has done with his winnings.

But when those in the latter age bracket do win one of the four headline events, it invariably proves to be their swansong. If Tiger wins the Grand Slam, he'd be the first man to ever do it. I can't see how he can be two under from the wrong place at Bethpage.

The man who famously won $1.19 million on Woods' Masters victory - thanks to an $85,000 bet at 14 to 1 odds - has taken some of those winnings and put it on Woods to win the next three majors, too.
