Duke posted an impressive 4-under 66 on Sunday to get to -12 overall. He had a one-shot lead on Stroud when Stroud missed the 18th green. But, the young golfer chipped in to force a playoff with Duke. In the playoff, the two pared the opening hole and then Duke birdied the final playoff hole with a beautiful approach shot, giving him the victory.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Duke had 150/1 odds to win this race, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $15,000.

Bubba Watson was in contention to win this tournament, but he posted a triple bogey on the par-3 16th, which led him to finishing fourth at -10 overall.
