Guy who won big on Masters bet doubling down on Woods. Bet 100K at 100 to 1 odds to win Grand Slam.

James Adducci made the media rounds when he cashed in on an $85,000 bet on Tiger Woods to win the Masters, but he's now betting bigger.

 

I saw this. IMO, a terrible bet at 100:1 odds. Completely emotion-driven bet.

When things looked bad, when even Tiger thought his career was finished, Joe LaCava believed. This is the story of the guy standing right beside Tiger.

Woods on playing in the Olympics. I read McIlroy wants to as well.

So he's currently $1,190,000 - $85,000 = $1,105,000 ahead.  and he's betting $100K...He's playing with house money. 

Do the math - he loses, he's still got $1M and change more than he had in March.

This bet isn't terrible....it's just fun.  The FIRST bet was ridiculous and he got very lucky (and fortunate).

I very much doubt that, based on what he said when he withdrew the last time.

House money - that's exactly how Vegas wants people to think. It's not house money, it's his money that he's playing with, and it's a lot of money - at least that's how I think.

I actually feel like you do.  I wouldn't make the bet.  But he started with, apparently in his mind, $85k he was willing to lose.  If he stops here and Tiger doesn't make it.  He still has $1M in his pocket more than he started with.  That's a pretty good first half of the year.

I'd be more worried that (note the article says the first bet was his first time betting on anything) this indicates he's got the gambling bug...

Deep breaths.

I honestly don't sleep well when he's playing in a major. Not joking.

You sure you’re not the guy with $100k riding on him?

    • Thanks, that’s nice to say. I’ve been working on it for a while. Although I’m currently having trouble implementing a new move.  And I always fight the urge to whip the club back way inside and flat and then come over the top. I work everyday on my backswing shoulder turn so my arms can come along for the ride when I turn away. If I manage to get too far the other way, it’s easy for me to correct.
    • I have been listening to the Unspooled podcast which is methodically going through the AFI top 100 list. Recently rewatched back to back, The Post, birdie,  and then All the President's Men, eagle, (for the umpteenth time, I love this movie) because it covered the latter movie. While I respect the opinions of the podcast, it has had its criticisms of movies that I love, like Saving Private Ryan for one, but I learned a lot from the hosts, and that held for ATPM, like I did not know as much about Muskie as I should have. I tossed aside The Post as awards fare, but on rewatching it, I enjoyed it more, especially being able to put ATPM on right afterwards, a great double bill. The latest Unspooled is on Vertigo, eagle. May rewatch that as Vertigo is another of my all time faves. Vertigo, episode #55 of Unspooled on Earwolf Paul & Amy fall into Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 psychological thriller Vertigo!  
    • I would agree with @dennyjones.   Typically if it's just out playing around, I'll often try to do the harder wedge shot through the "V" in the 80 ft tall trees.  I'm in the trees often enough that iv'e had too much practice so it's a higher % shot for me.  If the score is important, I will take the shot that I think give me the best chance at advancing the ball, whatever it might be.  Every round is some kind of learning, some more than others. My course typically doesn't have many people when I'm there, so I will often play 2-3 balls at the same time unless I have someone behind me, then I will let them play through. You can still learn while enjoying and having fun.
    • Hopefully, you learn something from every experience. Of course, some of us learn faster than others. Obviously when playing a round that counts, you play for the lowest score. That's why there really is something to be said for practice rounds, particular when the course isn't busy and you can try different things.  As time goes by, the strategy for each hole on the course changes through learning. The hole where I used to lay up in front of the hazard has become a hole I know I can hit GIR if my drive gets to a certain place on the fairway. Now its just a matter of hitting that darn driver. It's a process.
    • For competitions, etc absolutely.  For fun daily play?  I disagree, it's my game, I can make the purpose of that day whatever I like. I have days where I feel like taking on that cool shot.  So I do - just for fun, knowing that my score will be hurt.  So what?  I want to try the shot and I'll take my medicine when it doesn't go well. Other days, I play for score and try to select my shots as best I can based on my limited knowledge, skill and experience. It's a game - I do what I want.
