Tiger Woods made history Sunday, and so too did one of the largest online sportsbooks on the planet, BetOnline.


The bookies may have been the only folks upset that Woods won his 15th Masters.

Dave Mason of BetOnline revealed via Twitter Sunday afternoon:

Congrats to Tiger and the minions who bet him. His victory at #TheMasters is by far the biggest futures loss (any sport) in the history of BetOnline

Tiger's win is a catch 22 for the books, who know that his victory means more interest in golf betting.

The 43-year-old Woods shot a 2-under 70 for one-stroke victory Sunday.  This was his first majors win since the 2008 U.S. Open.

“The body’s not the same as it was a long time ago, but I still have good hands," Woods told the media following his triumphant win.

Francesco Molinari began the day with a two-shot advantage over Woods and Tony Finau.

Woods opened at 18-1 odds of winning this year's Masters.  He was the -200 favorite to win just hours before the final round.

BetOnline has released odds on the next big Masters tournament, the PGA Championship May 16.
