Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Tiger Woods to win the Masters in 2019. Prior to that tournament, I had bet on Tiger to win every single major he played in since my sophomore year of high school. I think I broke even after he won the Masters.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
Carlos Alcaraz to win the second set against Hugo Gaston on the ATP Tour. Alcaraz was up 5-0 in the set before losing it 7-5.
