Chris Paul Celebrates Tiger Woods' Masters Win With Exclusive Sneakers

Does it sting? Sure it stings, but it's just part of the business.

The unidentified bettor earned a record $1.19 million payout from William Hill after Woods triumphed Sunday at Augusta National following an eventful final round to claim his first major title in nearly 11 years.

"Nobody wants their record to be broken but I certainly wouldn't want Tiger to be hurt and not be able to do it and now he's pretty healthy and playing well and I wish him well".

Few people thought Tiger Woods would even win a major again. "It's a painful day for William Hill-our biggest loss ever-but a great day for golf".

Several athletes, including fellow golfers, wrote about Woods.

FanDuel confirmed over $3 million in losses, with over $1 million a result of a promise to participants in a contest that all would get a refund if Woods won.

Stevens went with Jaylen Brown in the starting lineup in place of Marcus Smart , who is out with a torn left oblique. The change paid off with Morris going 3 of 4 in the period, including two 3-pointers, and scoring 12 points.

"Tiger winning is good for the sport and good for our customers", said FanDuel's Mike Raffensperger. "Knowing all you have been through physically to come back and do what you just did today?"

The 43-year-old then held off the challenge of McIlroy and world No 1 Justin Rose to win the Tour Championship in Atlanta last September, his 80th PGA Tour title and first since 2013.

"We actually want our players to get their wins", DraftKings' Jamie Shea said. The first three all came when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII past year. The SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas reported a high five-figure loss on Masters future bets while BetOnline.ag told ESPN that the victory led to the company's biggest futures market loss ever.

Technically, Woods has a chance to match Nicklaus' mark this year by completing the Grand Slam because of his 15 career majors.

Woods, though, is listed at 8 1/2-1, according to the Action Network, meaning that if he goes back to back, sportsbooks will be set to take another bath. "To me, he is a real guy with super human golf abilities, and in that moment, he had something with his kids that he's never had before".
