Ryder Cup 2021, a fan won a million dollars

The Ryder Cup 2021 was unforgettable for the United States and its fans. For some of them, however, it was more unforgettable than all the others. Someone on Whistling Straits Sunday literally changed their life.

Ryder Cup 2021, betting

An enthusiast of betting and golf (or golf and betting) has grown rich by hitting a series of incredible results. An anonymous player has in fact guessed all twelve of the final results of the twelve singles on Sunday 26 September. So, for an eight-dollar stake, he collected a $ 996,000 prize.

The bet was made on the Golf Bet circuit, the official betting partner of the PGA Tour. The lucky punter put on paper the successes of Johnson, Koepka, Berger, DeChambeau, Thomas, Scheffler and Cantlay for the hosts and the three Europeans of Poulter, McIlroy and Westwood. As if that were not enough, the peers between Fleetwood and Spieth and Morikawa and Hovland also ended up in the “matrix”.

Who knows what he might have thought when he bet on Scheffler’s victory against world number one Jon Rahm (he was given at 230) or who knows what screams of joy they will have started at Morikawa’s last putt at 18, which was not successful.

Making the victory even more valuable is the fact that some of the Ryder Cup 2021 singles were irrelevant to the final result of the race. The US dominated and the decisive point had come in the middle of the day. With no cup in play, you play for prestige and glory.

A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty. This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the “secret weapon” of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.

“He’s a good guy, he’s been through a lot as a sportsman and he’s the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I’m not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period. “. These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed ‘the Baltimore Shark’, important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. “The mental aspect is something I’ve worked on a lot with him lately. I’m really lucky to have him around. Besides, he’s a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value.” This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
