Scott triumphs at PGA National

Adam Scott proved he can win with a standard putter as he held off the challenge of Sergio Garcia to claim the Honda Classic at PGA National.

Scott was forced to relinquish his long putter at the start of the year to comply with the ban on anchored strokes but he banished any doubts over his ability to play with a conventional club to secure his first victory since May 2014.

The Australian was tied for the lead with Garcia at the start of Sunday's round but he moved two clear of his playing partner with birdies on the first and fifth and was still one clear of the Spaniard after a bogey five at the ninth.

A second bogey straight after the turn saw him drop back into a share of the lead but there was a two shot swing when Garcia bogeyed the 11th before Scott birdied the 12th.

Garcia reduced the deficit to one with a birdie on the 14th and after both players bogeyed the 16th, the Spaniard was left to rue what might have been as he dropped another shot at the 17th.

Although he birdied the 18th, his back-to-back bogeys proved decisive and it was Scott who was celebrating.

"I'm so pleased. It's been a long time between drinks on the PGA Tour, especially after I was in such good form the last time I won, but that's the beauty of this game," Scott told Sky Sports.

"It felt like hard work out there to get it in the clubhouse and Sergio stuck with me the whole way and did not give me an inch. Fortunately it was enough to win.

"The game was definitely there, although it was not as pinpoint as yesterday. It's hard to do that two days in a row at PGA National but I hit some great shots at the right times and hit a lot of putts that hit edges today."

Blayne Barber and Justin Thomas finished in a share of third on five-under with Graeme McDowell carding a final-round 69 to finish four-under.
