Man who won $1.2M on Tiger's Masters victory is doubling down

May JohnsonMay 13, 2019

The American punter who won more than $1 million betting on Tigers Woods to win the Masters, has upped the ante with an astonishing new bet.

The bet was made at the same William Hill sportsbook at the SLS Casino where Adducci made the original bet on Woods to win the Masters at 14-1; this latest wager would win $10 million.

Woods has previous major victories at the site of this year's PGA Championship (Bethpage Black) and U.S. Open (Pebble Beach) already and is around an 8-1 favorite at multiple U.S. sportsbooks to win the PGA Championship, which takes place May 16-19 on Long Island, New York.

"That's a tough golf course", defending PGA Championship victor Koepka said during an early press conference for the tournament.

Woods' Masters triumph was the 15th major title of his career. April had the Masters and the magic, June had the U.S. Open and the moxie, July had the British Open and the history.

Adducci said that he had good reason to believe that Tiger could continue his comeback by winning the next three majors.

Do not be surprised if birdies prove hard to come by at this week's US PGA Championship.

When Woods tees it up at Bethpage Black on Thursday, he will be coming off a 31-day break.

Mason Greenwood Was Brilliant - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
United will finish the season in sixth place, having won just two of their last 12 matches in all competitions. Greenwood has been in spectacular form for the Red Devils' youth side, scoring 26 goals in 26 games.

The unheralded South Korean capitalised on a strangely poor display from Woods and captured first place on the back nine.

Woods is the fourth golfer in US history to receive the Medal of Freedom honor, following in the footsteps of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Charlie Sifford, the first African-American to play on the PGA Tour.

Eyebrows were raised when Adducci claimed that his $85,000 bet on Woods to win the Masters was his first. Injuries robbed Woods of prime years for gaining ground on Jack's 18, but once again Tiger is on the prowl.

Unlike the 2018 PGA Championship, the 2019 edition will be play as the second major.

Koepka's power off the tee should be of great benefit on Bethpage's Black Course, which poses a fearsome challenge and measures at a massive 7,459 yards. And while he was T6 at the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage, the course was a quagmire and he got the wrong side of the draw. Tiger had never failed to win a major when leading with 18 to play, but that record was broken in sensational fashion by Y.E. Yang. "No, I envisage him to be in contention at those two".

"He played well. He wasn't spectacular, he wasn't knocking out all the flags".

This is the third time Spieth comes to the PGA Championship with a chance to become only the sixth player to complete the career Grand Slam.

"But then, I think that's the -misconception people have with Tiger". After the win, USA Today reported that he had an extensive criminal history that included 12 guilty pleas and four misdemeanor charges of domestic violence. The 53-year-old former champion requested to use a cart, which the PGA of America approved under its American with Disabilities Act guidelines. "That was fantastic. It's a tall order".
