How Tiger Wood cost UK bookies over £5 million in the Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods cost UK bookies £5m at the weekend, leaving punters very happy. Sunday night Europe achieved a massive shock comeback in the 2012 Ryder Cup. Europe started day three 10-6 points down, but in the single games managed to actually not only retain the Cup, but win it. Very few punters had backed a draw and of course, as on the 18th hole, it stood all-square. Bookies were licking their lips in anticipation of big profits, but it was a Tiger Woods who conceded the hole that cost bookies big. Here are some numbers of how much they lost:

  • Paddy Power – £800,000
  • Ladbrokes – £650,000
  • Sky Bet – £500,000
  • William Hill – £500,000
  • Betfred – £400,000
  • Coral – £400,000

In fact, the Daily Mail report that two punters even bet £500k on Europe winning on the final day. Lucky them. A Ladbrokes spokesman told MailOnline: ‘No-one bets on a tie. It cost us just over £650,000 last night on Tiger’s miss. Tiger is not a bookie’s friend this morning.
