Sunday was a magical day in sports history as Tiger Woods defied the odds and completed his incredible comeback with a huge win at the biggest tournament in golf, The Masters. No one thought Tiger would be able to perform as well as he did but he managed to stay at the top of the leaderboard throughout all four rounds. On the final day, Woods survived multiple breakdowns from the golfers around him and played solid all day. With a birdie on the Par 3 16th hole, he was able to solidify his win and enter the history books with his fifth Masters win.

Coming into the weekend, the William Hill U.S. sportsbook at SLS Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada had the odds at 14-1 against Woods. One lucky bettor decided to put $85,000 on Woods and when he won, he walked away with $1.19 million, which was the largest loss in the sportsbook’s history.
