Nicklaus major record in play again for Woods

Nicklaus major record in play again for Woods

One American gambler who bet £65,000 on Tiger Woods to win the Masters collected William Hill's largest ever golf payout Sunday after the American secured an famous success.

Tiger Woods secured his fifth green jacket. and $1.2 million for a mystery punter.

The director of trading for the United Kingdom-based company's US operations, Bogdanovich told USA Today that the sportsbook took an overall loss of "seven figures" on Woods' win, his first at the Masters since 2005 and first major of any kind since 2008. The company also reportedly put Tiger's odds at 100-1 at one point with a $10 limit on bets as a promotion to draw in more action. He said he had a feeling Woods would win because his children were watching.

"But I'm a little surprised by him winning, especially with the competition he faced".

Similarly, the 14 years between his Masters Tournament wins is the longest space of time between victories in the history of the illustrious Augusta-based golf tournament.

With this latest win, Woods, 43-years-old, became the youngest golfer to win the Masters Tournament since Jack Nicklaus in the year 1986.

"So my last three major championships have been pretty good, so that in itself gives me a lot of confidence going down the road".

"I'm not going to play as much as I did past year", he said.

"I don't know if he's anxious or not", Woods said when asked whether Nicklaus should be concerned at being caught. Bogdanovich admitted earlier this week that William Hill had to confirm it could even accept the bet.

"This is a story for the ages", Asher said.

In the intervening period he battled a succession of injuries - a fourth back surgery in 2017 making him wonder if he would ever play again - and saw his reputation damaged by lurid revelations about his private life.
