Rose Win Costs Ladbrokes £2 Million


Justin Rose’s US Open win has cost Ladbrokes a cool £2 million in payouts to winning punters.

The Englishman was heavily backed before the tournament started, seeing him tee off at Merion as a 25/1 shot, however in-play punters also had the opportunity to back Rose as big as 66/1.

Going into the late hours of Sunday evening Rose was as short as 1/500 for the win, with six punters winning a collective 57p.

It’s long odds-on (1/25) that Rose ends the year with just one major under his belt, or there’s a 10/1 chance he adds another to his collection, with potential success at The Open chalked up at 20/1.

Rose’s odds of picking up this year’s BBC Sports Personality Of The Year award have consequently been slashed to 5/1 from 20/1, making him the second favourite to Andy Murray (9/4).

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Rose is a thorn in our side after the bumper payout, and punters are already reinvesting their winnings for success at Muirfield in a month’s time.”
