Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Monday, April 15 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Seahawks Celebrate Woods’ Win
Tiger Woods took home his fifth Masters win on Sunday after sinking his putt on the 18th green during the final round of the 2019 Masters Tournament. The win caused a wave throughout social media and surfaced tons of fans to celebrate the win, including a handful of Seahawks players.
Some of the supporters include linebacker Bobby Wagner, quarterback Russell Wilson, defensive end Jarran Reed, center Joey Hunt, and tight end Will Dissly. Wilson really maxed out his Tweet when he combined two photos of Woods’ win and a scene from the popular HBO series Game of Thrones, as the eighth and final season premiered on Sunday as well.
The last time Woods has won a major championship title was in 2008 when he came out on top at the U.S. Open. The 43-year-old earned a sizable paycheck of $2.07 million, which is the standard 18 percent of the total pot. This number makes him the first Masters champion to earn more than $2 million from the pot.
As you could imagine, a solid chunk of the Seahawks roster enjoys a nice day out on the links, including Dissly, tight end Nick Vannett, and long snapper Tyler Ott. I’m sure now that Woods has taken the title at the Masters, a few players might be inspired to step up into the tee box.
