Golf betting: A 150-to-1 long shot won a PGA event and only one bettor had him ... for $1
By the end of Kyoung-Hoon Lee, who lapped the field at the PGA's AT&T Byron Nelson tournament last weekend, many bettors had prevailed.
Lee shot an incredible 25 under par to win the tournament and won by three strokes. When the odds fell, the weather grabbed him. In the end, 11.7% of the tickets and 27.9% of the handle at BetMGM were on Lee to win. When Lee beat the tournament as a major underdog, he secured last place in that week's PGA championship.
Before the tournament? Nobody had Lee. Actually, that's not true. One person sat Lee to win the tournament.
For $ 1.
Kyoung-Hoon Lee was a huge outsider
Lee was one of many names at the bottom of the odds list before the AT&T Byron Nelson kicked off last week. Lee was 150 to 1 to win the tournament, but it's not like people are rushing to bet him.
BetMGM said there was a bet on Lee prior to the tournament to win. It was a $ 1 bet to win $ 150.

Hey, how many times have you won a 150-to-1 bet in your life? Even for a dollar, that's a pretty fun cash ticket.
Lee won as a mad underdog and got an entry into that week's major. One bettor had a great story to tell about the 150-to-1 shot.
The house would probably be delighted if only $ 1 was wagered on that week's eventual PGA championship champion.
