The 21–year–old South Korean, Si–woo Kim, became the youngest person ever to win the Players' Championship, and his victory was a very rewarding one for an Irish punter.
A man from Dublin put €100 on Si–woo to win the tournament, with another €100 on an each-way finish at 500/1.
The €200 staked has now delivered winnings of €60,200 (£50K) for the lucky punter, who is remaining anonymous. He clearly knew something that we mere mortals did not!
