5 outrageous golf bets landed in 2017

1. Sergio Garcia at The Masters - €330,000

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power revealed to bunkered.co.uk that, prior to proceedings getting underway at Augusta National, it took a bet of €10,000 on Sergio Garcia to win The Masters at 33/1. 

Of course, Garcia finally delivered and gave the punter, who remains unnamed, an absolute fortune. We would say life-changing... but if you can afford to stake €10,000 on a guy that had endured close to 20 years of major near-misses, perhaps it isn't.
