Golf Fan Places Insane Bet on Tiger Woods to Win The Masters


A Tiger Woods win at The Masters could net one bettor over $1 million.

Someone, other than Woods, has the utmost faith in the legendary golfer. According to Golf Digest, one fan put down an $85,000 wager with William Hill, the casino conglomerate that operates 115 sports books, and has all of his or her eggs in Woods' basket. That's a lot of pressure for Tiger. 

Via Golf Digest: 

"The payout would be $1,190,000, which now accounts for the largest liability on a single wager in William Hill's U.S. history. When reached on the phone Tuesday evening, William Hill's Director of Trading Nick Bogdanovich said he thought the bettor — whom was likely a first time customer at the book — had likely made a mistake when entering the wager.

'I thought it was probably an $85 or $8,500 bet,' Bogdanovich said. 'But they were for real.'" 

We found the one person that probably wants a Tiger victory more than Woods himself.
