A Dublin punter has just won big with this outrageous golf bet

'Woo' for him and for Kim.

If this Dublin punter sees Si Woo Kim anytime soon, he owes him a stack of pints.


Kim's unlikely win at Sawgrass last night saw the 21-year-old South Korean become the youngest man to win the Players' Championship.

He became just the fourth player to win two PGA tournaments before the age of 22, a list that also contains names such as Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Sergio Garcia.

Si Woo Kim showed nerves of steel to hold on in the final round as other experienced players, like recently crowned Master Champion Sergio Garcia and overnight leaders JB Holmes and Kyle Stanley, fell away in the final stages.

Having gained his PGA Tour card at just 17, Kim had failed to make the cut several times in recent outings.


Not a great record, but the successful Dublin punter had faith in the young golfer and placed €100 on him to win the tournament outright, with another €100 on an each-way finish at 500/1.

His €200 winning stake gave him a grand total of €60,000 profit with his original €200 also returning to his back pocket.


Not bad for a day's work but it still hasn't a patch on Si Woo Kim's winnings. The golfer netted almost $2 million in prize money, a five-year tour exemption and his very own locker at TPC Sawgrass.

Kim revealed after his victory that he will be missing from the PGA Tour for the guts of two years, however, as he completes his military service.
