Woods breaks into world top five

Watch Tiger loses poker showdown to NBA superstar in Vegas WATCH: NBA Star Russell Westbrook Beats Tiger Woods In His Own Charity Poker Tournament - Poker News

Tiger Woods' caddie is about to get a day off after a fan recently won the chance to step in as the golfer's assistant during a charity auction.

Wood's reply? "F--in' great bet".

Despite choosing not to play between the Masters and PGA Championship, it appears Tiger has wised up and learned that he needs to play at least some competitive golf between majors. It was the first sports bet this bettor had ever made and it was placed at a Nevada sportsbook operated by British bookmaker William Hill, who gave the bettor odds of 14-1 on Woods winning. Erica Herman was initially dubbed a "gold digger" who "chased Tiger like a puppy". Woods' final round of 70 for a 13-under-par 275 was enough to win by one from Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.

Before his Masters victory, Tiger took on his longtime rival Phil Mickelson in a head to head match for $9m (£7.1m).

McConnell says he would fill a Supreme Court vacancy in 2020
Since 1900, only eight judges have been considered during a presidential election year, the Wall Street Journal noted in 2016. The seat was left vacant until April 2017, when President Trump nominated conservative justice Neil Gorsuch .

Boris Johnson to appear in court over misconduct claims
Last week the court was told Johnson "knew the figure (£350 million) was wrong, but still he chose to repeat it over and over". She said: "The allegations which have been made are unproven accusations and I do not make any findings of fact".

During a clinic at his Tiger Jam event, Woods was asked what he thought of the $85,000 bet. The event was a part of the Tiger's TGR Foundation and had some pretty heavy celebrity presence there. Unfortunately, after the Masters, that person then bet $100,000 (R1.4 million) on Tiger winning the next three majors and completing the grand slam. He hadn't won a major in nearly 11 years, and I am sure that sort of played into what happened at Bethpage.

While players are not allowed to place golf bets, they can bet on other sports and partake in other forms of gambling.

While hosting a charity poker tournament called the Tiger Jam Experience at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Woods and Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook both went all-in before the flop.

Let's hope Tiger is saving all his lucky breaks for Pebble Beach.
