The 2012 Open has wrapped up after four exciting days of competition at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, California. In the end, Jonas Blixt birded two of his final three holes to secure the championship over Tim Petrovic and Jason Kokrak. Blixt will receive $900,000 for his win on the Tour.

Blixt shot 3-under par on Sunday to improve his overall mark to -16 for the event. That was one stroke better than Petrovic and Kokrak, who tied for second place at -15. Petrovic shot -7 in the fourth round, while Kokrak struggled a bit in the early going on his way to a 68 (-3) for the day.

Jimmy Walker, Vijay Singh, Alexandre Rocha and John Mallinger tied for fourth place after shooting 14-under par this week. Jeff Overton placed eighth, while Gary Woodland and Russell Knox rounded out the top 10.

Patrick Cantlay, who hails from Southern California, really struggled during the fourth round while shooting a 76 (+4). He finishes the tournament in a tie for 47th place at -4 overall.
