Lowry posted a 4-under 66 on Sunday to get to -11 for the tournament, which was two shots better than Bubba Watson, who also shot a 66 on Sunday to get to -9 overall. Justin Rose and Jim Furyk entered Sunday tied for the lead, but both shot 2-over 72s on Sunday to finish at -7 overall, which tied for third.

According to oddsmakers, Lowry came into this tournament with odds of +11000 to win, which means a wager of $100 on him to prevail will pay out an additional $11,000.

Lowry opened the tournament with an even-par 70 but had a string of 66-67-66 to close out the tournament. Rose shot a 63 in Saturday’s third round but couldn’t bounce back on Sunday. Furyk started the tournament with back-to-back 66s but struggled throughout the weekend.
