A £50 bet on Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods and Mark Calcavecchia saw one punter celebrate a 475/1 win, scooping a whopping £23,800

Victories for Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods and Mark Calcavecchia over the weekend made it four out of four on the favourites front and that was costly for bet365.
 
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth “We had a shocking Saturday in the Premier League and all four favourites winning on the golf has hardly filled us with festive cheer!”
 
“We had plenty of punters doing doubles and trebles consisting of Rory, Lee and Tiger, with one customer also including Calcavecchia to a £50 stake returning 475/1.”
 
bet365 have updated a number of 2012 Major markets and the firm also make Tiger Woods their 5/4 favourite to win a Major before McIlroy and Westwood.
 
“In days gone by we’d have done our money big time In-Play with Woods in with a shout of victory, but our customers were keen to oppose him and get with Zach Johnson – maybe punters will have more belief in Tiger in future after his victory in California” added Freeth.
