Charl Schwartzel’s Masters victory has saved bookies Ladbrokes from a huge six figure payout after the South African won at 100/1.
The South African defied top priced odds of 100/1 to win which was great news for the firm who had laid Tiger Woods before the tournament as well as in running at all rates with his comeback looking a real possibility on the final day.
Woods now earns a 6/1 quote for The Open with Schwartzel 50/1.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We were quaking in our boots when Tiger looked like he was roaring back to win but thankfully it wasn’t to be. Schwartzel was a fantastic result for us despite laying some decent each way bets about Woods & Donald and with turnover as high as it was we can’t complain overall.”Ladbrokes latest betting
