Leishman was six shots off the lead entering the final round, but managed to post an 8-under 62 on Sunday to get to 14-under for the tournament. Leishman then waited around for over two hours before becoming the winner, as the rest of the field failed to top his 14-under score.

According to oddsmakers, Leishman had 100/1 odds to get his first PGA Tour win this week, this means that a $100 wager on him to win will pay out an additional $10,000.

Roland Thatcher and Brian Davis entered the day at 12-under par, but both shot even-round 70’s to finish tied for fourth.

Bubba Watson actually ended up in second place with Charley Hoffman at 13-under par. Watson posted a 5-under 65 on Sunday while Hoffman shot a 4-under 66.
