Curtis Wins 1st PGA Tour Since 2006 At Texas Open

View Comments

SAN ANTONIO (AP) – Ben Curtis won on the Texas Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title since 2006, holding off Matt Every and John Huh in a tense back-nine finish for a two-stroke victory.

Curtis birdied the par-5 18th for an even-par 72 and 9-under total. It was a redeeming and emotional win for the 2003 British Open winner who had only limited tour status after a long slump.

After the round, Curtis fought back tears while saying: “It’s been a tough couple of years.”

Every had a 71 and lost a chance at his first tour win with four blown putts. Huh roared back with a 69, but the Mayakoba Classic winner fell just short.
