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 bucks. Literally.
A William Hill gambler Tuesday placed an $85,000 wager to win $1.19 million on Woods to catch the Masters at 14-1 odds. The bet represents the largest liability for an individual golf bet in William Hill’s U.S. history.
“It is going to earn a terrific tournament even more interesting, if that’s even possible,” William Hill sportsbook manager Nick Bogdanovich said.
Woods hasn’t won the Masters since 2005, along with his win in the Tour Championship in September was his first victory in over five decades.
“He is playing nicely. Obviously includes a shooter,” Bogdanovich said. “However, the top tier of players is really profound now, you must play four excellent rounds to get it done.”
Woods is the Masters money leader in the Westgate, in which a bettor placed a $10,000 wager to win $120,000 on him to triumph at Augusta National Golf Club.
