Potts said it does not appear the suspect, a 24-year-old male, had a relationship with the child or the child's family. But three months later he was accused of returning and throwing a glass at a woman in a mall restaurant.

It was the United States golfing icon's 15th major in all - and fifth win at Augusta - but the first time he has clinched one of golf's big four prizes since 2008.

Nicklaus had been bone fishing in the Bahamas but made sure he found land in time to watch the final few holes.

"A big "Well done" from me to Tiger".

The bet on Tiger to win the 2019 Masters Tournament was placed on April 9 at 14/1 (+1400) odds, at one of William Hill's Las Vegas Sports Books.

'There's just such an outpouring of emotion from everyone because for so long we never thought we'd see him win another major, ' he said. You're still pretty great, too.
