Justin Thomas withdraws from PGA Championship with wrist injury

Maybe James Adducci's wager on Tiger winning the Masters was his first sports bet

After next week's PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in NY, the U.S. Open is at Pebble Beach in June. Tiger Woods has seen some sports gambling action already, but one gambler thinks that he could sweep the next three majors. Bethpage Black will be tough.

"He needs that heat on his back, I would have thought", Faldo added.

He will play with defending champion Brooks Koepka and British Open titleholder Francesco Molinari, both of whom launched challenges on the final day of the Masters. Considering the recipients, history, and what this means to me and my family, it's also very humbling.

James Adducci is the man who bet a massive $85,000 on Tiger to win the Masters at an odd of 14-1. Eleven years since he last won a major, two years after a fourth back surgery and with no guarantees he would play again, Woods ushered in a new era of Tigermania.

"You've seen the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, and I would not be in this position without all your help", he said.

After being held since 1972 in the dog days of summer, the PGA Championship's move to May should ensure milder weather and more attention from USA sports fans whose thoughts by August have invariably turned to American football.

Woods will have annual Masters chances at Augusta National and two 2021 majors will be on courses where Woos has won majors - St. Andrews for the British Open and Torrey Pines for the US Open. "To make $1 million is a step".

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.

'I've never been to Bethpage before, ' said Fleetwood, who was among the players on a flight to NY, chartered by the European Tour, which left two hours after the final putt was holed at Hillside. Bobby Jones did win the calendar Grand Slam in 1930.

Recently, however, it's been a struggle for Spieth. He hasn't been in contention since he played in the final group of the British Open previous year. "They will be sort of improving, as opposed to in the August date previously, we were sort of more on a hanging-on, keeping-the-grass, the-cool-season-grasses-alive mode". "But I don't mind that".

For this, the switching back of the PGA Championship to May for the first time since 1948, tournament organisers have been afforded the money-can't-buy marketing boost of Woods at the forefront once more.

He took last week off after missing the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship with rounds of 75 and 77, and will play alongside Americas Michael Thompson and Justin Bertsch teeing off at 4.10am (NZT) on Friday.

Bubba has performed rather well at Bethpage Black previously.

Known for its posted warning that it is an "extremely hard course" that is recommended for only "highly skilled golfers", the Black will be tipped out at 7,432 yards at par-71 for the PGA.

What likely won't change is the energy outside the ropes. In Woods's defence, even before the exertions attached to winning his 15th major after years of psychological and physical woe, he had acknowledged the likelihood of a tame 2019 schedule.
