Golf Punter wins $300,000 on Phil Mickelson winning US PGA

Phil Mickelson may have scooped more than $2 million for his victory at the US PGA last week, but a number of golf punters around the world also won big on the oldest major champion of all time. 

Mickelson, who prevailed by two shots for his sixth career major title at Kiawah Island on Sunday, landed odds of 300/1 with some bookmakers at the start of the week.

One punter took full advantage of those lofty odds for Lefty and his $1,000 outright win punt landed him a profit of $300,000 over at DratKings Sportsbook. 

 

 

While that was the biggest payout we have heard on Mickelson winning the US PGA so far, there were some other outrageous bets landed. 

One of which included a ridiculous $60 double bet of Mickelson winning the tournament along with a LeBron James and LA Lakes win player performance bet against the Golden State Warriors.

 

 

Both bets landed and it resulted in an incredible $41,000 profit for the punter. 

Other bets saw one punter win $60,400 from a $200 each-way bet at 250/1, while another scooped $84,300 following a straight $300 win. 

Another bettor won $37,500 after a $250 bet at 150/1 on Mickelson, and one punter collected $25,000 thanks to a $100 single at 250/1.

 

 

Fancy lumping on Mickelson to complete the career grand slam at this year's US Open at Torrey Pines, a venue he has won at three times before?

Well, unfortunately the price isn't quite as appealing as last week at the US PGA, but you can still get your hands on 50/1... and even that price is disappearing fast.
