      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.



      The odds were 500-1, so the syndicate looks to collect 200,000 pounds ($340,000) now that
      McIlroy has lifted the claret jug. He won by two strokes over Sergio Garcia and Ricky Fowler.
