Harrington wins Honda Classic
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (TheSpread) – It’s been a long time since Padraig Harrington has been a PGA event champion, but that ended Monday when he won the Honda Classic in a playoff.
Harrington shot an even-par 70 for his final round to finish at -6 for the tournament. He ended up tied with Daniel Berger, who shot a 64 in the final round. It took a pair of playoff holes, but Harrington found a way to earn a birdie and get his first PGA Tour victory in six years.
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Harrington was a big long shot to win this week, as he came into the tournament with 250/1 odds. This means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $25,000.
Both Ian Poulter and Paul Casey were in the lead entering the day, but both ended up one shot behind Harrington and Berger. Casey carded a 2-under 68 for his final round while Poulter ended up with a 4-over 74. He had a three-shot lead when the third round had been completed.
