Was this the greatest golf bet of all time? See what a $1 wager netted
There were many big winners last weekend.
• Martin Laird threw in a 23-foot putt for birdie on the second playoff hole to win Sunday's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open for a check for $ 1.26 million.
• Sei Young Kim didn't let off the gas on Sunday, winning her 11th LPGA win and first major in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship for $ 654,000.
• Tyrrell Hatton secured his first title in the BMW PGA Championship on Sunday, which is also his third win in the Rolex Series, for a price of 1.15 million US dollars.
But the biggest winner - or perhaps the most unlikely - had to be a player who, according to sportsbet.com.au, used a single dollar to get a massive return on a 20-leg bet. Among those selected were Hatton, Patrick Reed and Tommy Fleetwood.
The reward was $ 679,894.66.
While others have hit it big, they often had to put up big numbers too. For example, James Adducci, a 39-year-old self-described day trader from Wisconsin, raised nearly $ 1.2 million when Tiger Woods won the 2019 Masters.
Adducci described flying to Las Vegas earlier this month, grabbing a $ 85,000 bag bought at Walmart, and placing the bet. But that's a much bigger part of the change.
A single dollar netting of this type of return is special, but of course gambling and golf have a long and interesting history.
