Woods draws TV crowd, despite early Masters start

Tiger Woods

A bettor who risked $85,000 on Tiger Woods winning the Masters is now more than a million dollars richer. Does it sting? Sure it stings, but it's just part of the business.

Woods' fifth Masters win was his first at the iconic Georgia course since 2005. "It was just great to see".

The early betting odds favor Woods to win the next major tournament on the calendar. "It's a painful day for William Hill-our biggest loss ever-but a great day for golf". Joined by Asher and SLS casino-hotel general manager Paul Hobson, he smiled while posing for pictures holding the check for $1.275 million - his original stake plus the payout of $1.19 million.

"Tiger winning is good for the sport and good for our customers", said FanDuel's Mike Raffensperger. You watch how smart he played, how he used his head at 12 and put the ball in the middle of the green, how he hit the ball left of the pin on 13, hit the middle of the green on 14 and 15. "Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today?"

William Hill said it made its largest payout since several huge wagers were placed on the Eagles to beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl in 2018, and it was the largest for any non-Super Bowl bet.

It could have been much worse for BetStars, but the firm settled on limiting bets on Woods to $10 at promotional odds of 100-1, as opposed to one executive's suggestion of a $100 limit.

Things couldn't have gone much worse for the Sixers , who couldn't quiet Brooklyn's guards or their own fans. Harris was fouled taking a three and then Russell committed a clear-path foul on him.

Tiger Woods of the U.S.is congratulated by Jack Nicklaus (L) after his final round of the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, June 3, 2012.

"It keeps 18 (majors) in play", Fowler told a small group of reporters amid what for Augusta National amounted to frenzied scenes outside the clubhouse as thousands of spectators congregated hoping to catch a glimpse of the new champion.

William Hill has previously had to fork out seven-figure payouts at its sportsbook in the US three times, with each of the bets backing the Philadelphia Eagles to beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

"If there isn't a Tiger Woods PGA tour video game this year I'm selling all my consoles." another one said.

"East Lake was a big step for me, confirming that I could still win out here and against the best players because obviously it's the hottest 30 guys for the year".
