Tiger Woods' Masters win gives Nike investors another reason to cheer

Tiger Woods

The mystery United States punter placed an $85,000 (£64,900) bet on Woods winning the Masters with William Hill, two days before the tournament teed off, winning the life-changing sum from the 14/1 odds. Does it sting? Sure it stings, but it's just part of the business.

Thomas acknowledged he had needed to be convinced Woods could win another major.

Tiger Woods won his fifth green jacket and 15th major championship on Sunday after finishing 12 under par at The Masters tournament at Augusta National, but the day was also a big win for bettors and a losing one for sportsbooks in Las Vegas and New Jersey. "Tiger is Tiger. He's the greatest golfer I've ever seen". As with officials from DraftKings, a FanDuel executive asserted to Rovell that, in the long run, Woods' return to prominence is a positive for their businesses. "Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today?" It had been 14 years since he last won the Masters and 11 years since his last victory in a major. "But not for you", said South African legend Player on Twitter. The first three all came when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII a year ago. A New Jersey outlet of BetStars took a net loss of about $360,000 on its Masters futures market, the biggest for the company since sports betting was legalized in the state a year ago. According to ESPN, the company had discussed allowing people to bet $100 at those odds, but settled on the $10 limit later.
