Dublin punters lands whopping €60,200 golf bet win17th May 2017 / lee
It’s always good to hear of a betting win and a lucky Dublin punter certainly landed one on the weekend. The punter, who has stayed anonymous, landed a €60,200 win on a bet with 500/1 odds at bookmaker Boylesports.
The win came at The Players Championship at Sawgrass on the weekend as the punter had backed Korean golfer Kim Si-woo to win. It was a bold, bold bet of €100 each-way on the 21-year-old to win the tournament at odds of 500/1.
So with the stake at €200, a huge risk on a big, competitive field in Florida, it came good as Si Woo Kim held off Ian Poulter to land the bettor a whopping €60,200.
Liam Glynn, Boylesports spokesperson said, “Hats off to the Dublin savvy punter who picked Kim Si-woo to win the Players Championship at the massive odds of 500/1.”
He added: “The lucky punter certainly knows their golf and no doubt they will be able to afford plenty of four balls at the K Club after netting a whopping €60,200 from their €200 bet.
“We can certainly say this time that they got a hole in one over us and a little birdie told us that they are already enjoying spending their winnings.”
