Nevada bettor won $1.19 million with the victory of Tiger Woods
- A Nevada gambler won $ 1.19 million because he opted for Woods’ victory at the 2019 US Masters.
- The bet was winning since the golfer did not win a great championship since 2008.
The expectation was that Tiger Woods would win the Masters 2019, this time at 43 and in a field that would be heavier than he wanted, after several days of rain in Georgia. This ended up happening this Sunday – Tiger Woods, after 11 years without winning in the Grand Slam of golf, he won the 83rd The Masters.
With the victory of Woods, the bettor William Hill won a prize of $1,190.00, because he believed in the golfer to win the Georgia Masters. The $ 85,000 bet was considered risky, as Tiger Woods did not win a major championship since 2008, at the US Open. However, it was a true winning bet.
Congratulations to James on a LEGENDARY win!
