Trump to honour Tiger Woods with Presidential Medal of Freedom

Adducci says he plans on using his winnings for investment opportunities and to pay off outstanding debt.

"I know it's what everyone is going to talk about; that's why this room's barely full".

His excitement level picked up this weekend.

Adducci on Monday cashed in his ticket at the William Hill sports book at SLS Las Vegas and was presented with a $1.275 million check.

Tiger Woods makes comeback with his fifth victory at The Masters
Woods finished top of the pile on Sunday at The Masters after beginning the day two shots behind Italian Francesco Molinari . The win comes 22 years after his first win at Augusta in 1997, and 14 his since his previous triumph on the course in 2005.

Woods now has 15 major championship wins to his name and is three away from equalling the all-time record of 18 - set by Nicklaus. Adducci's win represents the largest golf payout ever for sportsbook operator William Hill US. Yes, recovering from what might have been career-ending back injuries is unbelievable, but that alone, especially when Tiger is still only 43-years old, is hardly enough to be granted such a prestigious honor by the president of United States. After robotically claiming victory in 14 majors, the mask came off and the circuit board was revealed in 2009, when tabloid stories about his extramarital affairs were effectively authenticated that Thanksgiving, when his then-wife Elin chased him out of the house with a golf club. "I started having a feeling about this about a month before (the bet was made)".

Adducci flew in on Tuesday, April 9, two days prior to the first tee shot at Augusta National and was given odds on Woods of 14/1.

A man with a mortgage on his house, two student loans and two vehicle loans decided he would take $85,000, which he said was "everything I had that I could afford to lose", and place it on Tiger. He first tried a couple of other sports books, he said, but was turned away. How many sports could lay on the kind of heart-wrenching. "When I said how much I was looking to bet, it just kind of was laughable".

A day after Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters championship, President Donald Trump said he would award the golfer America's highest civilian honor.
