Tiger Woods was expected to be able to win the 2019 Masters, this time at age 43 and in a field that would be heavier than he would like after several days of rain in Georgia. What turned out to be this Sunday - Tiger Woods, after 11 years without winning the Grand Slam of golf, won the 83rd The Masters.

Woods' win earned gambler William Hill a $ 1,190.00 prize, as he believed the golfer to win the Georgia Masters. The winning $ 85,000 bet was considered risky since Tiger Woods did not win a major championship since 2008 at the US Open. 

But, of course, there are fans and gamblers. The British company, William Hill, one of the most important in the United States, received the cheesy bet by telephone. Nick Bogdanovich, one of the bookmakers' executives, even thought the bet was $ 85 or $ 8,500 and had not gone beyond a miscommunication. In addition, the biggest bet on a golf tournament, according to William Hill, had varied, so far, between $ 10,000 and $ 20,000.

The US Masters is generally the most popular annual golf event to bet in the US. As a result of this big bet on Woods in an odd to 14, William Hill sports betting instantly reduced the odds to 10.
