Hell of a headline there, maybe the headline of the week.

This Masters fan put down a £1000 bet on Rory McIlroy to win the 2014 Masters after claiming he saw his face in a chocolate danish.

That photo you see at the top is the actual danish the man "saw" his face in, it's not a joke. 

I guess I can see where he's coming from with the Rory face thing but to throw £1000 on it is just ludicrous. To throw £1000 on McIlroy because you think he's going to win is, however, not ludicrous. 

The Ulsterman was anywhere between 7-1 to 12-1 (this guy got him at 11-1, which is pretty good) before the tournament began and was only three strokes back after the first round.

Here's his bet:

A good bet because of a silly inkling?

This might be the luckiest guy of the week.
