Tiger Woods Praised The Fan Who Put $85,000 On Him Winning The Masters For A ‘F*cking Great Bet’

Tiger Woods returned to golf’s mountaintop earlier this year. After an 11-year drought at major tournaments, Woods dramatically won The Masters, shooting -13 and narrowly beating Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele by a stroke. The win also marked the first time since 2005 that Woods added a green jacket to his wardrobe.

It’s safe to assume that no one was happier about this than Woods, although James Adduci may have a pretty good case. Adduci put an $85,000 bet on Woods to win The Masters, and when that came to fruition, he took home a $1.2 million payday.

Woods got asked about Adduci’s big payday during a clinic at Tiger Jam, a charity event that took place this weekend in Las Vegas. He got the question right before he hit a ball for an audience, and his response was succinct, albeit a bit NSFW.

“F*cking great bet,” Woods said to the delight of the audience.

Once everyone settled down, Woods remembered that Adduci apparently dropped $100,000 on him winning all four major tournaments. That, of course, did not happen — Woods missed the cut at the PGA Championship — so he thought it’d only be fair to address that wager, too.

“Dumbass for the Grand Slam one, though,” Woods said. Unsurprisingly, the crowd found that line hilarious, too.
