How the four first-time major winners could have made you a millionaire

Backing Willett, DJ, Stenson and Walker to win this year's majors in a fourfold was a massive 4,137,804/1 with Oddschecker.

How the four first-time major winners could have made you a millionaire

Jimmy Walker's success at the USPGA Championship on Sunday meant that all four of golf's majors in 2016 were won by first time winners. This was the first time since 2011 that four maiden winners have won each of the majors. Walker admirably fought off the challenge of previous USPGA champion, Jason Day to win by one shot on 14 under par.

While Dustin Johnson was very much expected to pick up his first major title sooner rather than later, the other three were significantly less fancied. Danny Willett was best priced 80/1 to win The Masters, DJ was 31/2, Stenson 35/1 and Walker 85/1. Had you put all four of those outcomes in a fourfold with Oddschecker that would have returned 4,137,804/1 and made you a multi-millionaire.

Had you backed the same fourfold of winners at worst odds, the return would have dropped massively to 526,932/1. Willett's odds would have halved to 40/1, Johnson's to 11/1, Stenson would have been down to 20/1 and Walker reduced to 50/1.
