Danny Willett’s Masters Win Cost Sir Alex Ferguson $11K (Video)

Jordan Spieth‘s Masters meltdown didn’t just affect the young golfer’s career. It’s important we also remember those in the gambling community who were affected by this unforeseen turn of events.

Former Manchester United bench boss Sir Alex Ferguson wagered a modest (by his standard’s, anyway) 8,000 pounds on Spieth to repeat, and was obviously left in the hole a bit thanks to Danny Willett‘s surprise win.

S when he ran into Willett shortly thereafter, he didn’t hesitate to call him out on being the cause of his latest financial speedbump.

Here’s the video:

It’s all in good fun, but I like the idea of the surprise winner catching grief from those who had bet on the favorite. I think part of the celebration of winning as an underdog should be having to shake the hand on everyone who lost over $10,000 by betting on the other guy—which, in the case of this year’s Masters, is probably a LOT of people.
