Parlaying two relatively unlikely golf results into one bet paid of big time for one Australian bettor.

Henrik Stenson's victory at the British Open wasn't all too surprising. Aaron Baddeley's win at the Barbasol Championship later that day was more shocking. Combine the two with a betting slip and you’ve got an incredible story.

According to golf broadcaster Luke Elvy, one person put them all together, parlaying a Stenson win in Scotland with a Baddeley win in Alabama. The July 12 bet came in at 1734-1 and, with a $50 wager, paid out $86,700. The bookmaker would also confirm.

Ely was understandably questioned on Twitter about the merits of the image he posted. Elvy clarified that the unnamed "guy" from his tweet is a "renowned golf punter in Australia." To each their own.
