Gambler who won $1.2 million puts 6-figure sum on Tiger Woods to win the Grand Slam

Published

on

James Adducci, the gambler who won $1.2 million on Tiger Woods’ victory at last month’s Masters, has put $100,000 on Woods now going on to win the Grand Slam, according to a report from Golf Digest.

Per the report, Adducci flew into Las Vegas on Wednesday to place the bet with William Hill who gave the 39-year-old odds of 100/1 on Woods to win the Grand Slam, meaning Adducci will bag $10 million should Woods make history and win the next three major championships.

Speaking to Golf Digest on his reasoning behind the bet, Adducci stated

“Tiger has history winning at Bethpage, and he won at Pebble, by the biggest margin in history. This is a very unique situation. That’s the way I’m thinking about it. We know that with every win, the energy level will get amped up. His game gets elevated. The expectation—does he play well under pressure? He’s the definition of excelling under pressure. That’s how my brain works.”

After winning $1.2 million on Woods winning the Masters, Adducci claimed that it was his first ever bet, and last month USA Today detailed the Wisconsin man’s criminal past.

    Tiger winning the Grand Slam at 100-1 is about the dumbest bet I have ever seen. Let’s look at the math. Tiger is 8-1 at the PGA. Let’s say he wins, being conservative he will be 6-1 at Pebble. Now if he wins you would be looking at a 48-1 payoff. Anyone think he will be longer than 2-1 at the Open? Of course he will be, not to mention you have 2 built in outs if he is in poor form. Why in the world would you essentially play a parlay card when you can make a multiple of the winnings playing each tournament?

      Wrong. Tiger would most definitely be 4-1 or less at Pebble with a win at Bethpage. He has been 2-1 4 times in his career and +150 three times, all at majors. Given a win at Bethpage and Pebble, his odds would be 2-1 or worse. Your math is correct, but the odds would certainly be worse.

        I hope we get to find out. Beverages on me if he is less than 5-1 after a W.

    Its not bad move considering the tax on the 1.2 million win, the 100k will be written off as a loss

      This^^^ No one else is talking about this. Too busy calling him dumb (my gut reaction too), then I scanned the comments looking for someone thinking this. It’s a smart move honestly.

        Actually, he cant claim more than he has won, for example, my wife hit a slot machine for $2,000 at a Indian Casino, first thing they did was hand her a W-2, when we filed, we had to claim the winnings, BUT, I read in the IRS web site I could not claim more losses in gambling than winnings.

Johnny Miller returns to the airwaves on Real Golf Talk, Callaway’s new podcast

Published

on

Johnny Miller is back sharing his opinions on the game on Callaway’s new podcast: Real Golf Talk, which aired its first episode today (listen here on Soundcloud).

The longtime NBC golf announcer retired from broadcasting earlier this year, but Miller now features alongside avid golfer and television host Chris Harrison on the podcast, which will air six episodes in 2019 and eight in future seasons.

Speaking on the opportunity to work alongside Johnny Miller on the podcast, co-host Chris Harrison stated

“Johnny Miller was a legend on the course and in the TV booth there was no equal. I know he’s got more to say on the world of golf and the world in general. There’s no chance I’m missing the opportunity to sit next to him and hear what he has to say.”

Miller (who, sidebar, will play all Callaway products) said this

“I am proud be returning to Callaway and working with the company’s incredible team on some exciting new projects. I’ve had so many great experiences with the company, from playing their equipment to working with Mr. Callaway and so many amazing people over the years. It feels like a homecoming for me, and I think golf fans will really enjoy what we have coming, starting with our new Real Golf Talk podcast.”

Real Golf Talk with Johnny Miller is a part of the Callaway Podcast Network and is available on Apple, Spotify, and Soundcloud.
