Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Jeremy's biggest win came at the 2016 Manulife LPGA Classic, thanks to Caroline Masson earning her only career tour win to date at 500-1 odds. It was an absolute sweat, with Jeremy not hedging entering the final round and watching Masson deliver the huge payday via a victory in a four-hole playoff.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
Missed hitting a $1 Pick 5 at Saratoga Race Course several years ago that paid five figures because I put in the wrong horse on the ticket. Pro tip: Always check your tickets!
