Rory McIlroy's Dad is Pretty Awesome


You had to love all the shots of Rory McIlroy's dad on Sunday at Congressional, walking around the golf course with a big smile on his face as his son was putting the finishing touches on an incredible U.S. Open win.

This is a father that is said to have taken three jobs at a time to help support Rory's golf career when he was a youngster, but great news about his father, Gerry; turns out, the dude loves to gamble ... on his own son!

Yep, according to the Belfast Telegraph (who doesn't read this on a daily basis?), Gerry bet £100 on his son winning the British Open before he turns 25 at 500/1 odds, and with the way Rory is playing, he might just get his £50,000 in the next couple of years.

The bet placed by McIlroy's father, a former barman at Holywood Golf Club, was similar but specifically on him winning the UK's Open Championship before his 25th birthday.

He and friends put £100 each into a kitty and also got odds of 500/1.

Mr McIlroy stands to win £50,000 if his son lifts the famous Claret Jug in.


Awesome. A dude that bets and used to tend bar. I walked right next to Gerry at Congressional for a little on Saturday (and by walked, I mean Rascal'd), and he seems like a legit dude.

Oh, and Gerry ... I need a new bookie. Got any ideas?
