Tiger Woods' Masters Win Lands Bettor $1.19M Payout

Tiger Woods

When Tiger Woods was busy winning his first Masters championship in 1997, he presumably had neither the time nor inclination to read Donald Trump's then newly published book, The Art of the Comeback. In fact, not even the man himself believed his own chances, going as far as telling friends he was "done" as little as two years ago. 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.

James Adducci was presented with a check for more than $1.2 million Monday at a sportsbook in Las Vegas.

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

The bet returned $1.19 million, the largest single-ticket sum payout in the history of William Hill casinos in the U.S. "It's great to see Tiger back".

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. "They definitely beat us today, and hopefully they'll come back".

Combined with an encore presentation, the final round combined for a 11.1 rating, which would be the best for the final round of The Masters since 2010, when Phil Mickelson won and Woods finished tied for fourth as he returned from a scandal that began with him driving into a fire hydrant. A New Jersey outlet of BetStars took a net loss of about $360,000 on its Masters futures market, the biggest for the company since sports betting was legalized in the state past year. According to ESPN, the company had discussed allowing people to bet $100 at those odds, but settled on the $10 limit later.

Woods' return to the upper echelon of competitive golf just as the season kicks off is "enormous" for the game of golf, Ritter said.

In 2010, Williams wrote that she hoped to catch Woods' major championship total with her Grand Slam total.
