MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The gambler who hit it big on Tiger Woods' Masters victory has a lengthy criminal record in his home state of Wisconsin.

James Adducci was presented with a check for more than $1.2 million Monday at a Las Vegas sportsbook. Adducci cashed in on 14-1 odds that Woods would capture the tournament that ended Sunday in Augusta, Georgia. His win marks the largest golf payout ever for sportsbook operator William Hill US.

Online court records indicate the 39-year-old Adducci has had multiple run-ins with the law in Wisconsin dating to 2005. None of his offenses were felonies, but his record includes four disorderly conduct convictions with domestic abuse sentence modifiers in La Crosse County.

USA Today reports that in one of the cases the victim told police she was able to dive out of her car before Adducci struck her. The same woman told police in 2017 that Adducci shoved her.

His record also shows he was convicted in March 2015 of 2nd offense operating with a prohibited alcohol content. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and had his license revoked for 16 months.

Adducci told USA Today that his criminal record has nothing to do with winning the Woods bet. When the outlet told him his last arrest was in 2017, Adducci responded: ''And we are in 2019.''

Tiger Woods confirmed Thursday that he will play next week's Memorial Tournament as he aims to rediscover his best form ahead of next month's US Open, tournament organisers said. Woods, who bagged a dramatic 15th major title at the Masters last month, was brought back down to earth with a bump last week after missing the cut at the US PGA Championship. The tournament at Bethpage Black was the first competitive golf Woods had played since his emotional victory at Augusta -- his first major title in 11 years -- and the American said he had not practised enough leading into the tournament.

Senator Mike Lee of Utah suggested the idea at a hearing about the Census's impact on the economy. It may add a new layer to a political battle over what questions the U.S. Census Bureau should include on its decennial survey of U.S. residents. "How many people are out of the labor force because of their criminal records?" Lee asked at a hearing in Washington by the Joint Economic Committee, which he chairs.

Here's what's separating Brooks Koepka from his peers (and why his major run isn't over yet)

When Jack Nicklaus won the 1965 Masters by a then-record nine strokes, the crushing victory left Bobby Jones muttering about how the Golden Bear was playing a game with which he was not familiar. More recently, Brooks Koepka's dominant play at last week's PGA Championship at Bethpage Black left at least one of his fellow competitors, Xander Schauffele, admitting to feeling simply melancholy. Kopeka's make-up and his performances in majors, of which he has now won four of the last eight, would undoubtedly earn him a spot in the "99 club"-a rare group of Madden NFL players with high enough attributes to earn a perfect rating-if video-game-maker EA still produced a golf title.
