Harris English wasn’t the supreme winner following his PGA Tour victory on Sunday.
English aloof $1.33 million by outlasting Kramer Hickok within the Travelers Championship. However, that total used to be narrowly eclipsed by the $1.36 million one bettor aloof after cashing in on a six-leg parlay, per ESPN’s David Purdum.
The bettor set aside $15.50 down with 90,396-1 odds of seeing all six outcomes swing their ability:
- Croatia to beat Scotland
- England to beat the Czech Republic
- Steve Stricker to safe the Bridgestone Senior Gamers Championship
- Nelly Korda to safe the KPMG Females’s PGA Championship
- Viktor Hovland to safe the BMW Worldwide Launch
- Harris English to safe the Travelers Championship
Their nerves were doubtlessly frayed by the level all used to be acknowledged and executed.
“I used to be sure that Hovland, Korda and Steve Stricker were correct bets,” the bettor instructed Betfair, per Purdum. “But I used to be rather of unsure on Harris English.”
English needed to sink a 28-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to pass to 13 below, which used to be eventually required to power the playoff with Hickok.
The pair then battled over eight playoff holes to receive out a champion, which tied for the second-longest unexpected-death playoff in PGA Tour history.
It absolutely made for dramatic viewing as the bettor watched to sight whether or now not they would be collecting a hefty windfall.
