Tiger Double! Bookies Suffer Six-Figure Blow as Tiger Roll & Tiger Woods Land an 80/1 Double
Punters Toast Huge Windfalls Following a Pair of Tiger Victories…
BoyleSports bookmakers were counting the cost of an outstanding punters’ coup on Sunday evening after Tiger Woods donned his fifth green jacket to land the most outlandish of doubles following Tiger Roll’s Grand National victory just a week beforehand.
Tiger Woods may have bogeyed the 18th hole at Augusta but he still finished one shot clear of the field at the Masters on ‘13 under’ to claim his fifteenth major victory. The American is now within three of Jack Nicklaus’ all-time majors record.
Just a week beforehand another Tiger had got the ball rolling for speculative punters when Davy Russell steered Grand National favourite, Tiger Roll, to his second straight victory in the world-renowned steeplechase.

Boylesports Punter Left Purring
BoyleSports had offered 80/1 on both sporting heroes winning their respective events but the odds tumbled as Tiger Roll crossed the line leaving the Irish bookies with a nervous watch at the first golf major of the year.
Nerves were jangling further on Sunday as Francesco Molinari stumbled on the back 9, allowing Woods to swoop. According to the Irish online bookmaking firm one anonymous punter cleared €80,000 in profits after investing €1,000 on the ‘Tiger double’, which looks set to net punters across all bookmaking firms several hundred thousand in winnings.
Meanwhile Tiger Woods, already the 9/1 joint favourite to equal another Jack Nicklaus record by making it six green jackets with a win at next year’s Masters, netted one Las Vegas based William Hill customer over $1 million in winnings after the UK bookmaker accepted an $85,000 Masters wager on the living legend at pre-event odds of 14/1.
