Unbelievable bet placed by Rory’s father from 10 years ago
By Bernie D'Amato under The Open Championship

 

According to a tweet by Andrew Cotter of the BBC, Rory McIlroy’s father, Gerry, and three friends placed one of the all-time great sports bets ten years ago.

Here is the tweet by Cotter:

 

They say sports betting is big across the pond, and this certainly supports that conclusion. Just like most bets, it is a complete waste of money unless the bet comes true. Good for Gerry and his buddies, but they still have one more round to go before they can collect their £200,000 winnings.
