The bettor who obtained $1.2 million when Tiger Woods won the Masters is shooting for a larger score . And he’s betting Tiger can turn his $100,000 wager into $10 million.
James Adducci (envisioned ) placed a $100,000 stake on Woods to acquire the 2019 Grand Slam in 100-1 odds. Adducci flew from his home in LaCrosse, Wisconsin to set the bet at SLS casino at Las Vegas, where William Hill US confirmed the bet at its sportsbook. That’s the same casino and sportsbook at which Adduccti cashed in $1.2 million on his 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 measure. To create $10 million is jumping to a new level.”
CAN TIGER DEFY THE ODDS?
Adducci’s wager on Woods is not best, and he could 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, and explained why he moved forward with another major bet on Tiger to capture all four majors and finish the 2019 Grand Slam.
“Tiger has been winning at Bethpage, and he won at Pebble, by the largest margin ever,” Adducci said. “This is a very unique situation. That is how I’m considering it. We all know that with every triumph, the energy level will soon get amped up. His game gets elevated… he is the definition of excelling under pressure. That is the way my mind works.”
Woods winning the Grand Slam at a calendar year would be historical for him and the bettor, Adducci.
Only three golfers — Koepka, Spieth, and McIlroy — have won two majors in precisely the exact same calendar year because 2010. Nobody has won three at the same year since Tiger at 2000, and no player has ever won the contemporary era Grand Slam in reference to the Masters, US Open, The Open Championship, and PGA Championship.
