Summerhays Finishes Tied for 12th at Honda,  Henley Wins Four-Way Playoff for Title

Enabled by a birdie on the last hole Daniel Summerhays finished in a tie for 12th place at The Honda Classic Sunday at The PGA National golf course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. His final round was two over par 72, his only round over par. He shot earlier rounds of 70-65-69 for a four under par finish 276.
At the top of the board the finish was chaos as Rory McIlroy collapsed and opened the door for a four-way playoff which was won by Russell Henley, his first PGA Tour win. He made the only birdie on the playoff hole, the par five 18th.
McIlroy started the day at 13 under par and finished the round at eight under par.
Still he almost won the tournament outright with a spectacular second shot on the par five 18th hole, but his 10 foot eagle putt slid past the hole and he was forced into the playoff.
