Bettor wins more than $1M on Tiger, sportsbook's 'biggest loss ever'

Bettor wins more than $1M on Tiger, sportsbook's 'biggest loss ever'

The Tiger Woods major watch, stagnant for so long that it had nearly been abandoned, is back on and Jack Nicklaus might yet be proved correct. Those "Tiger Roars" that had started on Thursday were louder than ever Sunday afternoon as Tiger Woods marched his way to his fifth Masters title and 15th major championship. So did Billie Jean King. "They were there at the British Open past year when I had the lead on that back nine, and I made a few mistakes, cost myself a chance to win the Open title".

As Rovell points out for context, that is a larger payday than every Masters contestant not named Tiger Woods received on Sunday. "Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today?"

It also seems that news of Wood's win and perhaps live viewers wanting to watch some history one more time was a victor for CBS Sports too. Wow Congrats a million times!

With the win, Tiger has answered one important question - he is capable of capturing more major titles.

The bookies took the loss with good grace though, celebrating Woods' victory on Twitter. Since then, Nike stopped making golf equipment, but stuck with golf apparel and the Tiger Woods brand ー leading to a payoff worth $22.5 million in exposure during Sunday's final round, according to the analytics firm Apex Marketing.

It was one of the all-time great sporting comebacks.

Tiger Woods of the U.S.is congratulated by Jack Nicklaus (L) after his final round of the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, June 3, 2012. A tense-looking Phelps was seen in the crowd behind Woods during the Masters. "What a great moment for the game of golf". To not only be able to play again, but to be able to win again, is something I will forever be grateful for.

He is also starting to regain his touch around the greens, which made him a birdie predator during his first golden run, while his long game is just as impressive.
