Gomez posted a 4-under 66 on Sunday to finish at -13 for the tournament, which put him four ahead of Greg Owen. Gomez was steady all week, posting a 66 in the first and final rounds while shooting a 68 on Friday and a 67 on Saturday.

According to oddsmakers, Gomez was a massive long shot to win this weekend, as he had 300/1 odds to claim his first PGA victory. This means that a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $30,000.

This week’s field lacked a lot of star power, but Phil Mickelson fought his way up the leaderboard with a 5-under 65 on Sunday. He finished at -8 for the tournament. Owen, who finished second, had just an even-par 70 on Sunday. Seung-Yul Noh also had a strong Sunday, posting a 65 as well to finish tied with Mickelson for third at -8 for the weekend.
