Golf betting can be a daunting proposition, especially if you’re in the business of trying to picking only winners. Narrowing down a field of 156 players to 25 who have a chance to win can be difficult enough, but to pinpoint who is going to have their best stuff on a given week is nearly impossible. That’s what makes this bet from “a renowned golf punter in Australia” so impressive.
What’s more? The guy didn’t just pick Henrik Stenson to win the Open Championship — a fairly straightforward wager — he welt ahead and put all of his eggs in the Aaron Baddeley at Barbasol basket, parlaying the two winners on a $50 bet.
Aussie golf broadcaster Luke Elvy shared the unlikely win.

Elvy only identified the winner of the $86,700 ticket to be a well-known Austrialian golf bettor, but regardless of who hit the Henrik Stenson/Aaron Baddeley double, we’re fairly certain he’s either a genius or a guy who liked Stenson at Troon and Aussie-homered Badds at Barbasol.
Either way, what a big win. Enjoy it, “renowned golf punter in Australia.”
