Dad Wager On Rory McIlroy To Win Title By 26

Aording to the BBC’s Andrew Cotter, 10 years ago Rory McIlroy’s father Gerry and three friends made a legal bet of 400 British pounds (100 each, equivalent to $170.87 currently) that the then-15-year-old would win the Open Championship by the age of 26.

On Sunday, the Northern Irishman will be 25 years, 2 months and 16 days, meaning his father and friends would collect 200,000 pounds (roughly $341,730). Though the bet actually stipulated that the younger McIlroy would win by the time he was 25, Cotter confirmed that even though McIlroy’s birthday has passed, the wager still counts as he has not yet turned 26.
