From Tiger Woods to Fergie: why we all love a comeback kid

Francesco Molinari hopes to learn from Masters mistakes after Tiger Woods pipped him to title

Bettor Won More Than $1 Million Thanks To Tiger Woods’ Masters Win

It was the golfer's first major victory in 11 years and his first championship at Augusta in 14 years.

"We actually want our players to get their wins", DraftKings' Jamie Shea said. "I played a little bit too much previous year because I kept trying to qualify for World Golf Championships and events in the [FedEx Cup] Playoffs".

According to ESPN Chalk, a sports bettor put $85,000 on the 43-year-old Woods last Tuesday at William Hill U.S. sportsbook at the SLS Casino in Las Vegas.

The player with the lowest stroke total including starting strokes in the TOUR Championship after 72 holes of competition will be named victor of the FedExCup and will be awarded an official PGA TOUR victory. Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele all received $858,667 for finishing right behind Woods in the standings.

Molinari took a two-shot lead into the final round and was still two ahead with seven holes to play, only to hit his tee shot on the daunting par-three 12th into Rae's Creek to run up a double bogey.




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's great to see Tiger back", Nick Bogdanovich, director of trading for William Hill U.S. said in a release. "It's a painful day for William Hill-our biggest loss ever-but a great day for golf". The SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas lost a "high-five-figure" sum.

Thomas acknowledged he had needed to be convinced Woods could win another major.

Midday at the Masters was a hit with TV viewers Sunday, leaving one to wonder what kind of audience Tiger Woods' resurrection would have drawn had weather not forced the final-round telecast to start at breakfast rather than after lunch.

BetStars' sportsbook in New Jersey, meanwhile, reported a $360,000 loss on its Masters future market, the largest in its history.
