Tiger Woods winning the Masters also helped one Wisconsin man rake in the dough. James Adducci, a day trader from La Crosse, turned an $85,000 wager into more than $1.2 million thanks to Tiger’s victory. The bet was placed at 14 to 1 odds at the Las Vegas location of UK based bookmaker, William Hill.
James Adducci: “Just being down by 3 and then Tiger Woods doing Tiger Woods things where guys start falling apart – it was a rollercoaster the whole time.”
Adducci flew to Vegas from Wisconsin yesterday. He brought his winning tickets and was presented with a giant check.
