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.
