Bettor wagers $85K to win $1.19M on Tiger Woods to claim Masters | Las Vegas Review-Journal

If Tiger Woods wins his fifth green coat Sunday, at least one Las Vegas bettor will feel like a million bucks. Literally.
A William Hill gambler Tuesday placed an $85,000 wager to win $1.19 million on Woods to capture the Masters at 14-1 odds. The bet represents the largest liability for an individual golf wager in William Hill’s U.S. history.
“It is going to earn a terrific tournament even more intriguing, if that’s even possible,” William Hill sportsbook director Nick Bogdanovich said.
Woods has not won the Masters since 2005, and his win at the Tour Championship in September was his first victory in over five decades.
“He’s playing well. Obviously includes a shooter,” Bogdanovich said. “However, the top tier of players is really profound now, you really have to play with four excellent rounds to get it done.”
Woods is the Masters money leader at the Westgate, where a bettor placed a $10,000 bet to win $120,000 for him to win at Augusta National Golf Club.
