Scott becomes sixth Australian to win Houston Open
HUMBLE, Texas -- Adam Scott came to the Houston Open starving for the stress of competition to prepare him for the Masters.
He got what he needed from fellow Australian Stuart Appleby.
Scott held off Appleby with a 6-under 66 on Sunday, saving par with a 50-foot putt on the 72nd hole after hitting his tee shot into the water.
Scott finished at 17 under, three strokes ahead of Appleby, the defending champion, and third-round leader Bubba Watson.
