Si Woo Kim’s second PGA Tour win at the Players Championship landed one Irish punter an absolute fortune.

According to Irish Golf Desk, the 21-year-old South Korean – who won by three shots from Ian Poulter and Louis Oosthuizen at TPC Sawgrass – earned a Dubliner a cool €60,200 (£51,184).

Ahead of the tournament, Kim was 500/1 as he saw off the star-studded field at Ponte Vedra Beach to become the youngest Asian two-time PGA Tour winner, with the person – who wishes to remain anonymous – sticking on €100 each way.

What’s even more surprising given the size of the bet is Kim’s form in the lead up to the flagship event, which was a best finish of T22 in his last 16 PGA Tour starts.

Liam
Glynn, BoyleSports spokesperson, said: “Hats off to the Dublin savvy
punter who picked Si Woo Kim to win the Players Championship at the
massive odds of 500/1.”

He added: “The lucky punter certainly knows
their golf and no doubt they will be able to afford plenty of four
balls at The K Club after netting a whopping €60,200 from their €200
bet.

“We can certainly say this time that they got a hole-in-one over us
and a little birdie told us that they are already enjoying spending
their winnings.”
