Golf punter wins HUGE MONEY off tiny $1 bet at the BMW PGA

A golf punter won just shy of $700,000 from a $1 stake following a 20-fold accumulator on the third round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Sunday.

The mystery gambler picked out the winner of 20 head-to-head matches from Saturday's play on the West Course and turned his $1 stake into a gigantic $679,894.66. 



Here's a look at how each of the punter's 20 matches went on day three:

Graeme McDowell (72) beat Thomas Aiken (73) 
Richie Ramsay (71) beat Sean Crocker (72) 
Pablo Larrazabal (66) beat Thorbjorn Olesen (71)
Bernd Wiesberger (72) beat Danny Willett (74) 
Kiradech Aphibarnrat (72) beat Joakim Lagergren (73) 
Lee Westwood (71) beat Robert MacIntyre (77)
Martin Kaymer (69) beat Matt Wallace (72)
Andy Sullivan (69) beat Alex Levy (77)
David Horsey (67) beat Jordan Smith (71)
Robert Rock (72) beat Julien Guerrier (75)
Marcus Kinhult (71) beat Matthias Schwab (78) 
Masahiro Kawamura (69) beat Andrew Johnston (71)
Ian Poulter (68) beat Wade Ormsby (74)
Tommy Fleetwood (67) beat Sami Valimaki (74)
Patrick Reed (68) beat Ryan Fox (73)
Scott Hend (73) beat Gavin Green (74) 
Eddie Pepperell (70) beat Grant Forrest (76)
Joachim B. Hansen (70) beat Adri Arnaus (74)
Tyrrell Hatton (69) beat Victor Perez (70) 
Shane Lowry (74) beat Matt Fitzpatrick (76) 

Looking at the above results, the punter was made to sweat in five of the 20 matchups given his players all won by the narrowest of margins, one stroke. The rest of his matches were fairly comfortable wins, however.
