Golf: Adam Scott makes Texas Open first tour win since '08


PAUL J. WEBER

SAN ANTONIO Australia's Adam Scott made the Texas Open his first PGA Tour victory in two years, shooting a combined 11-under 133 in a 36-hole finale today to edge Fredrik Jacobson by a stroke.

The 2008 Byron Nelson Classic winner, Scott overcame two early bogeys with an eagle on the par-4 17th in his third-round 66, then built his lead with six birdies en route to a closing 67 on the new Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.

Scott survived a closing bogey his only one in the final round when Jacobson missed a 16-footer from the fringe on No. 18 that would've forced a playoff.

Scott finished at 14-under 274 and earned $1,098,000 for his seventh tour victory.
