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 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 wager 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 explained.
Woods has not won the Masters since 2005, and his triumph at the Tour Championship in September was his first victory in over five decades.
“He’s playing nicely. Obviously includes a shooter,” Bogdanovich said. “However, the best tier of players is really profound now, you must play with four outstanding rounds to get it done.”
Woods is the Masters money leader at the Westgate, where a bettor put a $10,000 wager to win $120,000 for him to win at Augusta National Golf Club.
