The field dealt with fierce winds on the lakeshore, but when all was said and done, McDowell and Simpson found themselves at -9 for the tournament to force a playoff. McDowell shot a 2-under 69 on Sunday while Simpson went with an even-par 71.

In the first playoff hole, McDowell managed to make par while Simpson just missed his par putt, giving the victory to McDowell.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, McDowell had 33/1 odds to win this tournament, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $3,300.

Charley Hoffman came into the final round with the lead, but shot a 6-over 77 on Sunday to finish the tournament at -5 and in a tie for sixth place. Luke Donald and Kevin Streelman tied for third place by finishing at -7 for the tournament.
