A bettor woke up this morning and decided it was the perfect day to place $100 on John Daly to win the PGA Championship, a wager that would win $100,000.
Is this simply a low-risk, high-reward bet? Or does this bettor actually think the 56-year-old golfer has a legitimate shot to pull off his first PGA Championship win since 1991?
It might be a combination of both. While Daly’s odds are appropriately long, he did begin the tournament briefly at the top of the leaderboards through two holes (-1). But he’d end his day with three straight bogeys to move to 2-over par and finish with an opening-round score of 72.
Potentially three more days of sweating it out for this optimistic bettor.
Maybe the best bet of the year 😎
