Man bets $85,000 on 14-1 odds of Tiger Woods winning Masters

The director of trading for the United Kingdom-based company's US operations, Bogdanovich told USA Today that the sportsbook took an overall loss of "seven figures" on Woods' win, his first at the Masters since 2005 and first major of any kind since 2008. Since then, Nike stopped making golf equipment, but stuck with golf apparel and the Tiger Woods brand ー leading to a payoff worth $22.5 million in exposure during Sunday's final round, according to the analytics firm Apex Marketing. "I can't remember how many Grand Slams I have". Woods, who won the 2018 TOUR Championship for his 80 career title and ended a five-year winless drought, jumped from No. 81 to No. 13 in the FedExCup standings with his victory at Augusta National and is in position to return to East Lake in search of his third FedExCup title.

But in winning the Masters at Augusta on Sunday to end an 11-year major drought, Woods crept within three of catching Nicklaus. "I'll just play in the tournaments and I'll be fully invested and committed to playing and trying to win".

Adducci does not have children, but golf is special for him and his father, who advised him against placing the bet. The day trader said he cashed out a losing investment and used the money for the bet. "To get his 15th after a long wait, after a lot of years away from competitive golf, being in a position where he wasn't sure he was going to play again, it's cool stuff". "I didn't know what was happening".

It's also believed to be just the fourth seven-figure payout on a bet at a William Hill U.S. sportsbook.

"This is a story for the ages", Asher said.

Adducci flew back to Las Vegas on Monday. "Tiger climbs back to the top, and a guy from Wisconsin, on his first sports bet ever, wins over $1 million betting on him". Several major sportsbooks took a beating on the victory, with one bettor heading to the 19th hole with a tidy profit of about $1.2 million.
