While his victory made waves across the sporting landscape in a number of different ways, Woods also captivated audiences that aren't always interested in golf, particularly when he isn't in the mix on Sunday at a major.

"We actually want our players to get their wins", DraftKings' Jamie Shea said. One gambler, however, was a little more excited than the other fans. She won 15 Grand Slams between Woods' 14th and 15th Major championship.

Paul finished with 14 points, seven assists and three rebounds as the Rockets cruised to a 122-90 victory over Utah in Game 1 of their first-round series.

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

He now has 81 victories, one short of Sam Snead, whose record could be tied as soon as next month, when Woods is likely to make his next appearance, at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina.

William Hill wasn't the only book to take a hit on the day. Adducci's win represents the largest golf payout ever for sportsbook operator William Hill US. The first three all came when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII previous year.

"It's great to see Tiger back", said Nick Bogdanovich, William Hill's U.S. Director of Trading, per CBS Sports. "It's a painful day for William Hill - our biggest golf loss ever - but a great day for golf". A New Jersey outlet of BetStars took a net loss of about $360,000 on its Masters futures market, the biggest for the company since sports betting was legalized in the state previous year.

The TOUR Championship will return to historic East Lake Golf Club one month earlier from August 21-25, when the top 30 players from the FedExCup standings will vie for the FedExCup title at the PGA TOUR's season-ending event.

Having said that, yesterday wasn't exactly an easy one for Woods.

BetStars' sportsbook in New Jersey, meanwhile, reported a $360,000 loss on its Masters future market, the largest in its history.
