Schwartzel wins US Masters at 100/1 after final-round 66

| 10.04.2011

CHARL SCHWARTZEL’S Masters victory has saved bookies Ladbrokes from a huge six figure payout.

The South African defied top priced odds of 100/1 to win which was great news for the firm who had laid Tiger Woods before the tournament as well as in running at all rates with his comeback looking a real possibility on the final day.

Woods now earns a 6/1 quote for the open with Schwartzel 50/1.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We were quaking in our boots when Tiger looked like he was roaring back to win but thankfully it wasn’t to be. Schwartzel was a fantastic result for us despite laying some decent each way bets about Woods & Donald and with turnover as high as it was we can’t complain overall.”
