Tiger Woods is playing in his 25th Masters tournament this year as he looks to beat the odds and take home a sixth Green Jacket. The legendary golfer entered as a longshot, however, boasting 60-to-1 odds to win.

Woods is still working back from a 2021 car accident that led to career-threatening injuries. Those setbacks nearly cost him his right leg.

Against the odds, Tiger miraculously made his return to the PGA in last year’s Masters, making the cut before finishing 13 over for the event. One year later, Woods is hoping to shock the world.

There’s one bettor that’s hoping to see him fail, though.

This golf fan threw a $250K bet on Tiger Woods to NOT win the Masters, which has led to some ridicule online. Many are blown away by the level of hate this fan has towards the GOAT, along with the relatively small payday the bet will land if it hits.

With Woods’ odds coming in at +6000, the payout for his not winning the tournament is just $2,000 on this quarter-million dollar gamble.

His odds of not holding that trophy on Sunday come in at a whopping -11100.

Making things more dicey, Tiger has the second-most wins at Augusta National in PGA history. He sits behind only “The Golden Bear” Jack Nicklaus.

A few of those wins have come as a bit of a longshot, too.

Most recently, Woods won the 2019 edition of the Masters with 14-1 odds, the longest odds of any of his wins at Augusta.

While this year’s 60-1 odds are much further, Tiger Woods’ experience and success at the course would be enough to push most people away from the outrageous bet altogether. That, and the overwhelming contingency that wants to see him wear that jacket one more time before he retires.

Anything can happen over four rounds of golf, but it didn’t deter this gambler.

Fans were quick to comment on the bet, with most hounding the bettor for betting against the golf legend.

One person said, “Wish I had this much money just to be a huge hater when I woke up each morning,” while another wrote, “This level of hating is crazy.”

This fan commented, “This feels personal.”

It will be interesting to see how the weather affects the rest of the tournament as heavy rains are supposed to move in over the next few days. That may actually work against Woods this weekend.

While many laughed at the wager, this bet did get off to a relatively good start with Tiger Woods shooting two over par on the first day. If that play keeps up, this bettor will be $2K richer.

Sometimes, it pays to hate.
