GERRY McIlroy has bet the money he won on his son’s Open victory on him never winning a major ever again.
After winning £100,000 on a £10 bet made when Rory was only 15, the golfers father was straight down the bookies to put the lot on a forthcoming irreversible decline.
Gerry said: There are very few golfing greats who win major after major, and my son is definitely not one of them.
With this one under his belt hes all set to believe the hype, ignore his caddy, get the yips in his swing and throw it all away, which means a massive cash jackpot for yours truly.
Ive filled the Claret Jug with liquid ecstasy to get him started.
The bet follows the example of Kultida Woods, mother of Tiger, who won an estimated $60 million gambling on her sons career.
She said: I did an unusual two-way accumulator: I bet hed win 14 majors before he was 32, and then that he wouldnt win any after that.
2009 was a very nervous year because it looked like hed been trained too well, but thankfully it all fell apart on schedule.
Thank God for skanks.
