Tiger Woods left early. Rory McIlroy faded late. And when a most unpredictable Honda Classic finally concluded with a four-man playoff, Russell Henley was as surprised as anyone to be holding the trophy.
Henley, who closed with a 72, won for the second time on Tour and qualified for the Masters. Tiger Woods withdrew after 13 holes, citing a lower back injury.
Russell Henley chipped in for birdie and then hit into the water on his next shot for double bogey. He watched Rory McIlroy throw away a lead with a double bogey and a bogey, only to stand over a 12-foot eagle putt on the next hole with a chance to win.
Russell Henley made good on his second chance at the 18th hole Sunday and won the Honda Classic after a wild day that began with Tiger Woods walking off the course with a back injury and ended with a four-man playoff.
Rory McIlroy did just enough to keep the lead Saturday in the Honda Classic.
McIlroy started strong, avoided a big number with a brilliant bogey in the middle and took on the wind and water on the 16th hole for one final birdie Saturday that gave him a 1-under 69 and a two-shot lead over Russell Henley at PGA National.
Rory McIlroy is 18 holes away from his first PGA Tour victory in 18 months, a chance to show the world he is back on his game.
"Golf is so hard that nobody knows for sure if they are going to keep anything going," he said. "I know I can control my work ethic and my attitude, and hopefully I can keep those consistent."
"It was a lot to deal with after I won," Henley said. "I played in the Masters, played in all the majors, played in all the WGCs, and I don't know that I was really prepared to do all that mentally."
