FOLLOWING Paddy Power’s €1.7million payout on Rory McIlroy’s maiden major victory at the US Open the bookie has opened betting on how great the Northern Irish wizard will go on to be.

One man who must have been sweating almost as much as the bookies would have been an absent Tiger Woods with McIlroy now more than a threat in preventing the former world No.1 from getting back on track in his quest to break Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 Majors.

Not only is the Boy Wonder 6-1 to tame the Tiger and win more career Majors than the fallen American idol but Paddy Power also offer 12-1 the Holywood star goes on to break Nicklaus’ tally.

However, his first target could be to break Nick Faldo’s European record of six Majors – well within his grasp at just 8-15.

McIlroy, who has already been backed in to 11-2 to win next month’s Open Championship, is 28-1 to lead all four rounds of the Sandwich tournament – just as he did at Congressional – and 22-1 to win both The Open and the US PGA. He’s 3-1 for another Major victory this year.
