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

If Tiger Woods wins his fifth green jacket Sunday, at least one Las Vegas bettor will feel like a million dollars. Literally.
A William Hill gambler on Tuesday put an $85,000 bet to win $1.19 million on Woods to catch the Masters at 14-1 odds. The wager represents the largest liability for an individual golf bet in William Hill’s U.S. history.
„It is going to make a great tournament even more intriguing, if that’s even possible,“ William Hill sportsbook manager Nick Bogdanovich explained.
Woods hasn’t won the Masters since 2005, along with his win in the Tour Championship in September was his first victory in more than five years.
„He is playing nicely. Obviously has a shooter,“ Bogdanovich said. „However, the best tier of players is so deep today, you really have to play with four outstanding rounds to get it done.“
Woods is the Masters money leader in the Westgate, where a bettor placed a $10,000 wager to win $120,000 for him to triumph at Augusta National Golf Club.
