If you walk into the sportsbet.com.au offices today, you might find a picture of world number 1 Adam Scott on our dartboard.
Yes, we love him as much as everyone, but he isn’t our favourite person at the moment, with his win this morning costing the online bookmaker over just shy of a quarter of a million dollars.
One smart punter has cleaned us out today, placing a $1,000 bet on both Rory Mcilroy to win the BMW PGA Championship ($13) into Scott to win the Crowne Plaza Invitational ($17).
With Scott winning this morning, the punter collected $221,000.
“We love Adam Scott as much as the next person, but today we were hoping he might do a Greg Norman and choke. But he didn’t and it cost us, but we won’t stay mad at him for long. And if they keep making him wear those ordinary jackets that he got after this morning’s win, he may not want to win the next tournament anyway!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
Despite the win, Scott is on the second line of betting at $13 to win the US Open next month behind Mcilroy who is the $9.00 favourite.
