James Adducci (pictured) placed a $100,000 bet on Woods to acquire the 2019 Grand Slam at 100-1 odds. Adducci flew out of his home in LaCrosse, Wisconsin to set the bet at SLS casino at Las Vegas, where William Hill US affirmed the wager during its sportsbook. That’s the same casino and sportsbook at which Adduccti cashed in $1.2 million on his very first sports wager on Woods.
“[William Hill] told me it is a bet that’s never been seen before.” Adducci told Golf Digest. “To make $1 million is a step. To create $10 million is leaping to a new level.”
CAN TIGER DEFY THE ODDS?
Adducci’s wager on Woods isn’t optimal, and he might have gotten longer odds than 100-1 had he shopped around or requested the bet to other sportsbooks like Caesars. However, Adducci remained with William Hill US, also explained why he went ahead with another major bet on Tiger to catch all four majors and complete the 2019 Grand Slam.
“Tiger has been winning at Bethpage, and he won at Pebble, by the largest margin in history,” Adducci explained. “This is a really distinctive circumstance. That is how I’m thinking about it. We all know that with each win, the energy level will get amped up. His match becomes elevated… he is the definition of progressing under pressure. That is the way my brain works.”
Woods winning the Grand Slam at a calendar year would be historic for both him and the bettor, Adducci.
