I won my first million quid backing holes in one bets on golf.We use to get 33/1 for hole in one during a gold tourney and myself and a few friends traveled round all the bookie shops in the country placing 1 pound yankee bets in all tourney's that we knew taking place.there was 4 of us and we made over 4 million before we became big news ,and we done nothing wrong.Did you know that nearly every golf comp has a hole in one and the correct odds are 8/1 with 128 players.
John Carter (a very close mate of mine -late 70's early 80's) when we were just starting out for Korals) and Paul Simons were the Hole in one gang.
They wrote a book about it. They sort of conned a few independents into giving them vast odds.
No bookie will give 8/1 about a hole in one. There are usually 156 players in each tournament. The true odds are around 5/4 or less.
It took dedication, loads of studying about golf and a few years to net about a million between them and in the process the bar stewards forced the demise of some small businesses.
You are 100% not being accurate, brassneck.
