Woods draws TV crowd, despite early Masters start

Tiger Woods of the U.S.is congratulated by Jack Nicklaus (L) after his final round of the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, June 3, 2012.

One local industry observer, who requested anonymity for lack of authorization to discuss these numbers, said if the weather had not forced rescheduling, the average rating for Woods' victory likely would have been as high as 12.0, peaking with at least 20 percent of the market's TV homes.

The 43-year-old completed a phenomenal comeback by claiming a 15th major title at Augusta National in front of the eyes of the world, winning one of golf's showpiece events for the first time since the 2008 U.S. Open.

Tiger Woods celebrates after he won the Masters golf tournament Sunday, April 14, 2019, in Augusta, Ga. "He's got me shaking in my boots!"

Remember that gutsy gambler who placed an $85,000 bet on Tiger Woods to win the Masters at 14-1 odds?

Then it is the British Open, at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, where nobody in this year's field has played a tournament.

"In that moment that he won, and I won, what was the most special for me, and it's why I placed the bet in the first place, was just seeing him share that victory with his kids", said Adducci, 39.

Thomas acknowledged he had needed to be convinced Woods could win another major.

"I didn't do it at Tampa [Valspar Championship]".

More immediately, Woods can become the most prolific victor in PGA Tour history.

For the PGA Championship later this summer, Woods and Johnson are both tied with 9/1 odds. With two wins already during the 2018-19 PGA TOUR Season, fans can expect to see "Kuch" tee it up at East Lake for the ninth time in his career after missing the season finale in 2018 for the first time since 2009.

Tiger Woods secured his fifth green jacket. and $1.2 million for a mystery punter.

"I thought he had a chance to be competitive", Westgate's Jay Sherman said of Woods, "but I'm a little surprised by him winning, especially with the competition he faced".
