Golf fan places ridiculous bet on Jordan Spieth

Jordan Spieth Swing

One person more than others will be hoping to see Jordan Spieth win on the PGA Tour for the first time since 2017 this weekend.


Because they’ve only gone and placed $10,000 dollars on him to win at this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational at odds of 33/1.

The mammoth stake was placed with American-based betting company PointsBet Sportsbook in the early hours of Friday morning.

The sportsbook has revealed that, should Jordan Spieth top the pile come Sunday evening, the unnamed bettor would receive a massive windfall of $330,000.

Spieth hasn’t racked up a professional win since claiming the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale in 2017 and has only recently returned to form, finishing no worse than T15 in his last three starts - his best run of form since posting three consecutive top-10s in June 2019.

The three-time major champion posted an opening round of 70 on Thursday at Bay Hill, leaving him only four shots off the pace of joint leaders Rory McIlroy and Corey Conners.

The 27-year-old gets his second round underway at 17:57 UK time on Friday.
