According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Thompson had 200/1 odds to win this event, which means a wager of $100 on him to prevail will pay out an additional $20,000.

Luke Guthrie had a chance to win on Sunday, but posted a 3-over 73 to finish the tournament at -5 overall, which was good enough for third place. Tiger Woods struggled all week, finishing 4 over for the tournament, which put him in a tie for 37th.
