Just when it seemed Harold Varner III was going to come away from the end of the Saudi International with merely another “learning experience," the 31-year-old North Carolina native pulled out the most spectacular finish of his career to walk off with his biggest title.

After squandering his 54-hole lead with a double bogey on the 14th hole and bogey on the 16th, Varner was two shots back of Bubba Watson with two holes to play at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club. Varner then made a birdie on the par-4 17th before rolling in a 92-foot eagle putt from just off the green to wildly pull out the win with a final-round one-under 69 and a 13-under 267 total.

It appeared Watson would be the surprise winner on Sunday, the two-time Masters champion playing a flawless round after starting the day six back of Varner. A closing 64 included a 14-foot eagle of his own on the 18th to seemingly lock up the title before Varner, still searching for a PGA Tour win, pulled off his heroics.

While many players controversially received lucrative appearance fees to compete in the Asian Tour event, the actually prize money payout for the tournament was $5 million, with Varner earning a first-place prize of $1 million. Here’s the prize money payout break down (separate from appearance fees) for each golfer who made the cut in the event.
