Holy crap!!!!  
What possesses someone to do that. Crazy but it worked. 

As betting website WagerMinds.com reported, someone had the chutzpah to throw $70 on Ernie Els to win the British Open at 469-to-1 odds whenAdam Scott had a four-shot lead with four holes to play.

Crazy bet, right? There was no way Scott was going to lose ... at least that's what most of us thought at the time. When Scott came unglued over the final four holes, the bettor, who placed the wager through a site that allows you to bet during the round, cashed in on his $70 hail mary bet and walked away with a tidy $32,830.

And there is a guy somewhere who put his whole bankroll on Scott when he was -4000.
