HOYLAKE, England (AP) -- Rory McIlroy was not the only winner at the British Open on Sunday.
The BBC said McIlroy's father, Gerry, and three of Gerry's friends placed a combined bet of 400 pounds (now $680) in 2004 on McIlroy winning the British Open before he turned 26.
McIlroy was 15 at the time of the wager and is now 25.
