Collin Morikawa won $1.16 million after beating Justin Thomas in the Sunday playoff at the Workday Charity Open.

A dude from Chicago walked away with just as much money after betting on the 23-year-old gold phenom.

Twitter user @CashoutKingJ posted the stubs from his big win on Sunday and the money is damn impressive.

Collin Morikawa is my HERO ($1.1 MILLION) What a fucking rush. What a fucking day. Love you all,” he posted on Sunday, along with photos of his winning stubs.

The BetRivers casino in Rosemont, Illinois reported the lucky SOB won over $700,000 on three Morikawa-related bets over the weekend.

  • Morikawa’s Thursday Round 1 won the bettor $204,000 on a $4k bet at 50/1 odds that the golfer would be leading after round 1.
  • Morikawa finishing in the Top 5 won the bettor $238,217.09 after placing a $28,025.84 bet at 75/1 odds.
  • Morikawa outlasting Thomas in the playoff nabbed the bettor $290,000 on a $10K bet at 28/1 odds.

BetRivers announced the same bettor took home over $1 million “when combined with unspecified winning bets on UFC 251 and Spanish La Liga Soccer.”

Speaking of big winners, Morikawa already has three PGA Tour wins and two runner-up finishes at the age of 23.
