  • Patrick Reed helps Tiger Woods with his green jacket after Woods won the Masters on Monday

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.

The unidentified bettor took advantage of 14-1 odds, posted Tuesday at William Hill's outlet in Las Vegas, on Woods winning his fifth green jacket this year.

Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US, authorized the bet after getting a call from the sportsbook. Other major firms that also divulged huge payouts Sunday included FanDuel and DraftKings.


Ritter said: "Tiger doesn't just move the needle. I see that Tiger Woods has 14 and I've always wanted to catch him!" "Hopefully, we will get some new golf bettors out of it".

The unidentified bettor earned a record $1.19 million payout from William Hill after Woods triumphed Sunday at Augusta National following an eventful final round to claim his first major title in nearly 11 years. A record that could be broken as the 43-year old still clearly has a few good years left - even though Woods is now the second-oldest player to win golf's most prestigious tournament. "To get his 15th after a long wait, after a lot of years away from competitive golf, being in a position where he wasn't sure he was going to play again, it's cool stuff". "They definitely beat us today, and hopefully they'll come back". The SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas reported a high five-figure loss on Masters future bets while BetOnline.ag told ESPN that the victory led to the company's biggest futures market loss ever.

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. "To me, he is a real guy with super human golf abilities, and in that moment, he had something with his kids that he's never had before". "I'll just play in the tournaments and I'll be fully invested and committed to playing and trying to win".
