The luckiest man on Earth has been found and he’s the owner of this winning bet showing a Henrick Stenson and Aaron Baddeley parlay.

The ticket is from TAB, Australia’s top racing and sports betting site.
The person who actually made the choice to bet Henrick Stenson to win the Open, and Aaron Baddeley to win the Barbasol Championship on the same weekend has been identified only as “a renowned golf punter in Australia.” It’s probably better we don’t know his real name.
The bet was a $50 one, with Stenson at 34-1 odds and Baddeley at 51-1. The winning ticket paid $86,700. At those odds this bet is more impressive than Stenson and Baddeley’s victories!
