While it’s safe to say no one is happier about Tiger Woods’ Masters victory than Woods himself, James Adducci probably comes pretty close. The Wisconsin man is $1.19 million richer thanks to Woods’ surprising win. Clearly confident that the fallen golfer would stage a comeback, Adducci bet $85,000 with William Hill US Sportsbook at 14-1 odds on a Woods win. When he collected his winnings Monday in Las Vegas, he told reporters the sizeable bet was the first he’d ever placed on a sporting event. “It wasn’t about the stats for me,” Adducci says. “The fact that this was going to be his first major in front of his kids, I was convinced he would win.” In fact, Adducci says winning the huge chunk of cash has made him feel closer to the golfing icon. “If I saw Tiger, I would tell him that I understood the pressure he must be under,” he says. “Because I, for a moment in time, felt it too.”
