The bettor who won $1.2 million when Tiger Woods won the Masters is shooting to get a bigger score . And he’s betting Tiger can turn his $100,000 bet into $10 million.
James Adducci (envisioned ) placed a $100,000 bet on Woods to acquire the 2019 Grand Slam in 100-1 odds. Adducci flew from his home in LaCrosse, Wisconsin to place the bet at SLS casino at Las Vegas, where William Hill US confirmed the wager 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’s a bet that’s never been seen before.” Adducci told Golf Digest. “To make $1 million is a step. To make $10 million is jumping to a different level.”
CAN TIGER DEFY THE ODDS?
Adducci’s bet on Woods isn’t optimal, and he could have gotten more 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 moved ahead with another major bet on Tiger to catch all four majors and finish the 2019 Grand Slam.
“Tiger has been winning at Bethpage, and he won at Pebble, by the biggest margin in history,” Adducci said. “This is a really distinctive circumstance. That’s how I’m considering it. We know that with each triumph, the energy level will soon get amped up. His game becomes elevated… he is the definition of progressing under pressure. That’s how my mind works.”
Woods winning the Grand Slam in a calendar year could be historic for him and the bettor, Adducci.
Just three golfers — Koepka, Spieth, and McIlroy — have won two peaks in precisely the same calendar year because 2010. Nobody has won three in the same year since Tiger in 2000, and no player has won the modern era Grand Slam in reference to the Masters, US Open, The Open Championship, and PGA Championship.
