"The bet that Ken Black has called your radio station about is a losing bet. He placed a £50 bet on "Rory McIlroy to win The Open before his 25th birthday. As Rory McIlory turned 25 years old on May 4th 2014, his bet has lost. We have paid out two bets today placed in Northern Ireland totalling (sic) £150,000 to lucky punters who backed Rory, then a sporting prodigy, to win The Open Championship in the next 10 years, which included 2014"
