Rory McIlroy stormed to victory last night, landing the US PGA Championship and indeed his second Major title. McIlroy wasn’t the only person with a smile on his face as punters cleaned out the bookie, costing Boylesports a whopping quarter of a million euro.
The 23-year-old golfing hero was the youngest player to win this Major title, beating Tiger Woods’ old record. The Holywood superstar has been installed at 100/1 to win the next three Majors in a row, while its 11/4 that he wins just one Major next year.
Tiger Woods currently holds 14 Major titles, while golfing legend Jack Nicklaus boasts 18 Majors to his name. Boylesports are offering odds of 7/2 that he wins more Majors than Woods and 20/1 that he beats Nicklaus’s record.
“Rory McIlroy was the worst case scenario for us as punters never lost faith in the Northern Irishman despite struggling for form prior to the event”, commented Nicola McGeady, Boylesports PR Spokesperson.
“The result has certainly hit us hard and going forward his odds will certainly be shorter for a Major victory after we offered 20/1 on him landing the US PGA Championship”, she continued.
