Man's wager on Tiger earns him more than $1.2M

LAS VEGAS—A Wisconsin man who claims to have never placed a bet on sports before he risked $85,000 on Tiger Woods winning the Masters is now more than a million dollars richer.

James Adducci was presented with a cheque for more than $1.2 million yesterday at a sportsbook in Las Vegas. Adducci's win represents the largest golf payout ever for sportsbook operator William Hill US.
