Rory McIlroy's Father Cashes In With 10 Year Old Bet On His Son

Rory McIlroy carded a 66 on the opening round of The Open Championship on Thursday and what followed, along with talk of him winning a third major, was word of a bet which his father had made 10 years ago.

Gerry McIlroy and three other friends placed a bet of £400 that the young prodigy would win The Open before the age of 26.

This evening, Ladbrokes tweeted that they would be paying out 180K to Gerry McIlroy and friends who placed the bet.

Here's Rory talking about the bet following his victory at Royal Liverpool.
