A player wins $ 679,894 by placing a dollar on a complicated betting door at the BMW PGA Championship 2020 closing on October 11.
At the European Tour event with 125 golfer participating last week, in addition to the familiar bets, an Australian bookmaker also opened a special draw for the final round with 67 players.
It was a 20-door combination with each door consisting of two golfers facing head to head. To win, guests must choose all correct winners at each door. Declining the curtain, an unknown player won $ 679,894, even if only placing a dollar, the equivalent of a cup of coffee in McDonald’s in the US.
And when comparing the results, there were four golfers selected to win the top 5 of the tournament, from top to bottom including Tyrrell Hatton, Victor Perez, Andy Sullivan, Patrick Reed and Ian Poulter. Champion Hatton and runner-up Perez are a matchmaking combination.
$ 679,894 is the third biggest return, compared to the bonuses for the champions at the three events of the top three golf systems in the world over the weekend. Hatton won the BMW PGA Championship at -19 with 1.15 million USD. At the PGA Tour, Martin Laird took $ 1.26 million for the Shriners Open title after a putt after a birdie. As for LPGA Tour, Kim Sei Young won the women’s major of PGA Championship, receiving $ 654,000.
Last year, the international golf and betting industry was stirring because James Adduci raised $ 1.19 million by placing Tiger Woods on the Masters. After that, Adduci lost $ 100,000 for Woods to hold all the traditional major quartets in 2019. To the US Open in September this year, he continued to invest $ 45,000 for the crowned Phil Mickelson door but “Lefty” did not cut species. On all three of these bets, Adducci chose the house William Hill.
