A true long-term bet landed an incredible €148k
The anonymous Irish punter just won €148k from an unbelievable long-term golf combination bet.
The record-breaking bet took almost a year to bring the results. An accumulator bet placed last January for the total stake of £15.16 (€17.69) finally settled. The bettor backed a couple of major golf tournaments starting with Xander Schauffele winning the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
The accumulator was definitely destined for success landing two longshots at the beginning: 23.00 (22/1) Schauffele and Tiger Woods winning US Masters at odds of 12.00 (11/1).
After such a great start the tipster had to wait for the PGA Tour Money List and the Race to Dubai to kick off. He had Brooks Koepka and John Rahm winning both tournaments at the odds of 6.00 (5/1) and 10.00 (9/1) respectively.
After clearing all the selections, one of the top online bookmakers had to payout £126,875.88 (approx. €148k) to the golf-lover. Was it worth waiting for? Let us know.
