A British man who saw Rory McIlroy's face in his morning Danish this week took it as a sign from above and decided to go out and bet on the golfer to win the Masters Tournament.

Rob Price, a 27-year-old from Andover in Hampshire, was amazed when he picked up a Danish from a local bakery on Tuesday and saw the Irish pro golfer's face burned into the crust.

"I was going to put some money on Rory to win the Masters this year anyway, but I'm pretty superstitious so when this happened instead of putting €120 ($166) down, I decided to go big and put €1,200 ($1,665) on through my Betfair account," Price told the U.K.'s Daily Mirror. "It's got to be a sign — Rory's face on a piece of food from his girlfriend’s home country. My mates have had a giggle and think I'm mad, but if I pocket €14,400 ($19,980), I'll be the one laughing."







The Masters Tournament kicked off Wednesday in Augusta, Ga. McIlroy, 24, is currently tied for 12th place going into Friday's play.

A representative from betting firm Betfair got a kick out of the McIlroy Danish prophecy.

"I suppose this isn’t the first time Rory’s been on top of a Danish but it’s certainly the first time we’ve had a customer place a bet as a result of it," Betfair’s Barry Orr told the Mirror. "It’s an odd way of choosing your bet, but it’s not the worst bet in the world. With Tiger dropping out of the Masters and the rest of the Tour having had a pretty mixed season, Rory's our joint favorite at 11/1 and he's certainly in with a good chance."
