One gambler enjoyed the United States’ 19-9 win over the Euros at the 2021 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits a little more than anyone else this past weekend, taking home almost $1 million on a 12 leg $8 parlay.
Somehow, this sports bettor correctly predicted the outcome of all 12 singles matches during the Ryder Cup, reports FanDuel Sportsbook.
That means this gambling wizard correctly picked Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Daniel Berger, Dustin Johnson, Lee Westwood, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter, Patrick Cantlay and Scottie Scheffler to all win their respective matches.
Then, as if that wasn’t difficult enough to do, they also had to predict a tie in the match between Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland, as well as another tie in the Jordan Spieth and Tommy Fleetwood match.
Making the predictions even more unlikely, the bettor would also have to have had the following happen, according to The Golf Channel.
1. A previously winless Rory McIlroy defeat a previously unbeaten Xander Schauffele.
2. Scottie Scheffler defeat world No. 1 Jon Rahm.
3. Paul Casey miss a 10 foot birdie putt on the final hole to give Dustin Johnson a win.
Add in Morikawa missing a 10 foot putt of his own on the 18th to leave him in a tie with Hovland, and one can only imagine the roller coaster of emotions this bettor, who wisely asked to remain anonymous, was on over the weekend watching his Ryder Cup parlay end up being a winner.

The odds of winning this particular Ryder Cup parlay was roughly 150,000-to-1, according to SportsHandle.com. Scheffler’s win over Rahm all by itself had a implied probability of just 30 percent.
Some people really do have ALL the luck.
