McIlroy Could Be A Million Euro Loser for Bookies

Punters new man of the moment, Rory McIlroy, could cost bookmaker Ladbrokes up to one million euro should he win the US PGA title in Atlanta. One punter in Northern Ireland placed a €10,000 stake on the Holywood man at 12/1 earlier this week.

McIlroy began the tournament as the 10/1 favourite but has drifted to 16/1 following his wrist injury on day one. Steve Stricker is the 9/4 favourite following his opening round 63.

Hayley O’Connor from Ladbrokes said, “We’re still wary of McIlroy at 16/1. He had a solid first round even with his wrist injury and could be a massive loser for us if he recovers to win!”
