Bettor Scoops Over $1m Backing Tiger to Win The Masters
Yesterday the world was watching as Tiger Woods played his way through the 18 holes of Augusta and onto his historic fifth Masters tournament victory. Tiger bettors everywhere were starring in anticipation, their hearts pounding as he climbed to a two-shot lead late in the prestigious tournament. All anxiously watching and waiting, although there was one perhaps more so than the rest… Mere days before the start of play, one Nevada sports bettor placed $85,000 on Tiger at +14,000. That works out to the eye-watering return of $1,275,000.
All went quiet as Tiger paused for a moment on the 16th, almost looking as if the emotions were getting to him, we can only imagine how he and that bettor were feeling during that moment. The great Woods then held back the tears and did what he does best. He closed out the tournament in emphatic fashion, winning with the final putt of the tournament.
The many Tiger backers rejoiced with him in that moment! Plenty of which took advantage of bookie offers that returned at 100/1 on Woods to claim his fifth green jacket. It was a historic moment for one of the game's greats and many relished in his victory with large paydays!
