Tiger Woods won't be the only big winner if he finishes on top of the leaderboard at the Masters.
AUGUSTA, Ga.— A bettor in Las Vegas will pocket nearly $1.2 million if Woods wins the Masters for the first time since 2005.
The unidentified gambler placed an $85,000 wager on Woods on Tuesday to win the Masters. The bet was made at 14-1 odds, meaning the bettor will walk away with $1,190,000 if Woods wins.
The bet made at the William Hill sportsbook chain represents the largest liability for an individual golf wager in the company's U.S. history.
Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite for the Masters, listed as a 7-1 pick at William Hill. Dustin Johnson is at 10-1, followed by Woods and Justin Rose.
The longest odds in the field? Bettors can win $20,000 on a $10 bet if Viktor Hovland somehow wins the green jacket. Hovland, a Norwegian amateur who plays at Oklahoma State, is listed at 2,000-1.
