Bettor Won More Than $1 Million Thanks To Tiger Woods’ Masters Win

Tiger Woods wins Masters to claim first major since 2008

While his victory made waves across the sporting landscape in a number of different ways, Woods also captivated audiences that aren't always interested in golf, particularly when he isn't in the mix on Sunday at a major.

"It really is a comeback story that I think rivals anything that's ever been written", he said. "I played a little bit too much a year ago because I kept trying to qualify for World Golf Championships and events in the [FedEx Cup] Playoffs".

Tiger Woods of the US celebrates on the 18th hole after winning the 2019 Masters.

Golf Digest reported that the wager was so significant that it immediately pushed odds on Tiger down to 10-1.

For the PGA Championship later this summer, Woods and Johnson are both tied with 9/1 odds.

Attorney General Barr Says US Intel Agencies Spied on Trump Campaign
But the question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated. I am saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it.

A decade after a marital dispute with his then-wife led to a crushing fall from grace for the golfer ー which was then compounded by years of injuries, surgeries and a public battle with substance abuse ー Woods claimed his first major championship in 11 years, and the 15th of his career.

The bet returned $1.19 million, the largest single-ticket sum payout in the history of William Hill casinos in the U.S. The first three all came when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII a year ago.

"Pretty good first bet", William Hill U.S. director of trading Nick Bogdanovich said in a statement.

And now that Woods finally has that elusive fifteenth major tournament win under his belt, the only question that remains is not if, but *when* will he win his sixteenth. "It's a painful day for William Hill-our biggest loss ever-but a great day for golf". One pessimistic gambler bet $20,000 on "no" at -100,000 odds, meaning he will win just $20 if Woods fails to win the PGA Championship, the U.S. Open, and the Open Championship later this year. "I'll just play in the tournaments and I'll be fully invested and committed to playing and trying to win".

Closer to home, ESPN reports that BetStars' sportsbook in New Jersey got hit for an approximate $360,000 loss on the futures market due to the tournament win.
