A Father's Vision
Rory McIlroy gave his father, Gerry McIlroy, possibly the best Father’s Day gift: his first major win on Sunday. Now he has the chance to give his father possibly an even better present. Gerry McIlroy stands to pocket 200,000 pounds if Rory wins the British Open by 2014. Follow me on the this one.
When Rory was 15 years old, his father combined with three friends to bet 400 pounds (100 each) that Rory would win the Claret Jug by the age of 25 (he is 22 now). They received 500:1 odds, so the payoff is 200,000 pounds. - Larry Brown
My dad made a similar bet about me even before I was born. Long story short my mom can take a fall down the stairs surprisingly well, I'm here, he lost the bet to his friends.
