Tiger Woods hadn’t won a major since 2008.
One bettor walked into the William Hill sportsbook at SLS Las Vegas last Tuesday and laid down $85,000 on Woods to win at 14-1 odds.
That’s a $1,190,000 payout, the largest I’ve ever seen or heard of in regards to odds to win golf wagering in Nevada.
It certainly was a great day for golf and Woods, who won his 15th major overall, just three behind Jack Nicklaus for the most all-time.
While we can count William Hill as a certain loser for the day, the rest of Nevada’s sports books had mixed results despite Woods being the most popular wager just about everywhere.
“We did very well,” said Station Casinos sports book director Jason McCormick.
