Sunday’s final round saw plenty of poor scores as third-round leader Rory McIlroy shot a 4-over 74 to finish at -8 for the tournament, which put him in a tie with Henley, Russell Knox and Ryan Palmer. It only took one playoff hole to decide the tournament, as Henley birdied the 18th while the three others were unable to match.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Henley was a longshot to win, as he had 200/1 odds. This means that a wager of $100 on Henley to win will pay out an additional $20,000.

Henley posted a 2-over 72 on Sunday, but it wasn’t bad enough to keep him from the win. Tiger Woods was coming off a 65 on Saturday to get into contention, but ended up pulling out of the tournament during his final round due to a back injury. Woods and McIlroy entered the week as the favorites to win at 9/1.
