Sir Alex Ferguson lost £8,000 after he bet Jordan Spieth to win the Masters.

Despite losing the bet, the former Manchester United manager congratulated 2016 tournament winner Danny Willett, but also made sure to inform the British golfer just how much money his victory cost him.

Willett was kind enough to apologize, saying to Ferguson “you need to know where to put your money.”

Spieth, the defending Masters champion, looked to be in control of the tournament until a final-day collapse, which prevented him from winning his second straight green jacket. Willet’s win marks his first major championship, and he is only the second Englishman to win at Augusta National. 

Watch Ferguson and Willett’s conversation below.
