From the ridiculous bet of the day department.
In 2004, when Rory McIlroy has 15, his father placed a bet that his son would win the British Open before turning 26. The betting place accepted the 400 pounds (about $700) bet and gave him 500:1 odds.
On Sunday, Rory McIlroy wins the British Open for his 3rd major title (only the Masters is missing from a career grand slam). The betting place is out 200,000 pounds (about $350,000).
If anybody cares about celebrity golf, former Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien ran away from the field to win the 25th American Century Tournament. Rypien won the inaugural event in 1990. LPGA Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstram placed 3rd. Actor and 1980's musician Jack Wagner placed 4th - Wagner is the only non-athlete to win this tournament, twice in '06 and '11. NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley scored -98 and finished in last place.
