Tiger Woods: Bold punter wins £909,000 with huge bet on American to triumph at the Masters

Tiger Woods’ miraculous Masters victory forced William Hill to pay out £909,000 on one massive bet.

A ballsy £65,000 bet was placed on the 43-year-old two days before the tournament began, resulting in the betting company’s biggest ever golf loss.

Nick Bogdanovich, the company’s US director of trading, said: “It’s great to see Tiger back. It’s a painful day for William Hill – our biggest golf loss ever – but a great day for golf.”

The rest of the sporting world, however, was celebrating after Woods completed one of the greatest comebacks of all time.

Victory at Augusta gave the American his fifth Green Jacket and his 15th major triumph – 11 years after the last one at the 2008 US Open.
