Bettor Turns $5 Into A Fortune After Wisley Cashing Out Parlay Involving Brooks Koepka At The Masters

It appeared Brooks Koepka had a very real chance of securing his first green jacket at Augusta National after heading into his final round on Sunday with a two-stroke leader over Jon Rahm.

Koepka certainly looked like the man to beat after respectively posting 65 and a 67 on Thursday and Friday, and while he was likely disappointed with the 73 he recorded before turning his attention to the last 18 holes, he was more than set up for success.

While plenty of players took advantage of the weather clearing up at Augusta while rallying on Sunday, Koepka wasn’t one of them, as he ultimately finished in a tie for second place after watching Rahm surge to the four-stroke lead that allowed the Spaniard to walk away with his first win at The Masters.

Rahm (along with Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy) was among the favorites to win the tournament, but most sportsbooks listed Kopeka as a relative longshot in the weeks leading up to the tradition unlike any other.

That didn’t stop one bettor from picking him to win The Masters in a three-leg parlay that was placed at the end of March to the tune of $5.

The first two bets had already hit thanks to the “Method of First Basket” wagers that came to fruition in NBA games played on the evening of March 28th, and the person who held the ticket in question faced a pretty big decision on Sunday: stick with Koepka in the hopes of winning $60,800 or take the very generous sum FanDuel offered them to cash out.

They opted to capitalize that offer right before Koepka recorded the first of the six bogeys he racked up on the day and netted $15,575.63 in the process, which is a bit more than the $0 they would’ve won by sticking by his side.

Must be nice.
