Clarke hadn’t finished in the top 10 of a major championship since 2001, but was steady all week, shooting a 70 or below in every round to win the title by three shots over Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog, Clarke had 125/1 odds to win the British Open coming into the week, meaning a $100 wager on Clarke will pay out an additional $12,500.

Mickelson was the surprise finisher in the tournament, as he was tied with Clarke for the lead during Sunday’s round. Mickelson went 5-under on the front nine and was 6-under after 10 holes. But, a stretch of four bogeys in six holes took him out of contention.

Dustin Johnson was one shot behind Clarke to start the day, but a slow start kept him from ever contending too seriously. A double bogey on hole No. 14 sealed his fate as runner-up.
