The punter then congratulated McIlroy, saying: “I’m happy for you mate!”

“A wee bit more” might have been a bit of an understatement given the Northern Irishman is set to pocket £1.35million in prize money for winning the tournament.

It has also given him a welcome confidence boost as he enters this week’s Open tournament in Liverpool.

McIlroy is among the favourites at the tournament as he looks to end his nine-year-wait for a major.


The 34-year-old currently has five major titles and has had a number of near-misses in recent years as he’s looked to end his drought.

Speaking after his victory, McIlroy said: “It feels incredible.

“It’s been a sort of long six months, I feel, since I won in Dubai.

“I’ve given myself tons of chances and hopefully this win sort of breaks the seal for me, especially going into next week.

“I don’t feel like it really proves anything. I don’t feel like I need to prove anything in my career but it’s satisfying to know that for me that I can still do it.

“It’s nice to have the validation. It’s great racking up top fives, top 10s, but it’s much nicer heading away with a trophy on Sunday afternoon. It’s a great shot of confidence.”

How To

Five Easy Steps to Lower Golf Scores

  1. Start by getting the right equipment. It’s important to have the right equipment. To find the right club for you, it is best to learn from someone who plays golf. If you don’t know anyone who plays golf, ask around at your local driving range. Some instructors might give you a free lesson because they love seeing new faces.
  2. Practice makes perfect. This goes without saying, but if you really want to improve your game, you’ll need to practice. Practice is important, no matter if you play alone or with your friends. And when you do start practicing, make sure you keep track of your progress. Keep track of everything you do to see where you are improving and where you need more work.
  3. Play more. When you first get started, it’s probably going to feel like you’re spending too much money on golfing gear, so you won’t go out nearly enough. But once you get in a rhythm, you’ll find that you actually enjoy it. So the next step is to increase your frequency of play. Try to play at least three rounds per week. This means that you should play one round of 18 holes on the weekend and two rounds 9 holes during week.
  4. Don’t forget to eat well. Many people think eating well after lunch is better than breakfast. But this isn’t healthy. Instead, try to eat something before you leave the house. In order to be healthy, you should have small snacks with protein, carbohydrates and fat. A light meal containing lean proteins and vegetables can be prepared when you arrive at your course.
  5. Get plenty of water. Drinking plenty of fluids can help prevent dehydration which can cause headaches and muscle aches. Additionally, water helps to keep your body hydrated which is essential for peak performance.
