Last minute bet on Rory nets £57000

July 22, 2014

Rory McIlroy has reportedly already turned his attentions to the next major on the calendar and with three already in the bag, William Hill are offering 10/1 that he manages to break Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major wins.

Rory McIroy was a lucky winner for one gutsy William Hill punter in the West Midlands after a £3,000 wager late on Wednesday evening returned £57,000 as the final putt was sunk. The man, a stranger to staff placed the wager eight minutes before the shop shut on the day before the Open at odds of 18/1.

"McIlroy is, in betting terms, as Tiger has been for years," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "He will more often than not start every major as one of if not the best backed in the book and he will always attract the big boys' money as well."

William Hill Rory McIlroy Odds:

Rory Mcllroy to win 19 or more majors: 10/1

Tiger Woods to win 19 or more majors: 5/1

Westwood to win a major: 4/1

Open Championship 2015: 6/1 Mcllroy, 10/1 Woods, 12/1 Scott, 25/1 Mickelson, 25/1 Garcia, 25/1 Fowler
