Adam Scott holds off Sergio Garcia for Honda Classic win

Powered by National Club Golfer


Adam Scott collected his 12th win on the PGA Tour as he held off Sergio Garcia in the final pairing at the Honda Classic.

His last win came at The Colonial, in a play-off with Jason Dufner in May 2014, when he was the World No 1.

This week he came into the week as No 13 and with the short putter in hand and he emerged victorious by a single shot after Garcia’s closing birdie. Last week he was second behind Bubba Watson at Riviera.

The highlight of Scott’s round came from a fairway bunker at the 12th when he stiffed his 9-iron approach from exactly 150 yards to make some amends for back-to-back bogeys at 9 and 10.

On Saturday the 35-year-old had a quadruple-bogey seven on his card at the 15th, on Sunday there were no major disasters and Garcia bogeyed 16 – after a thinned chip and appalling par putt – and 17 to allow Scott a two-shot lead playing the last.

American duo Blayne Barber and Justin Thomas shared third while Graeme McDowell made it to Doral with fifth spot. Vijay Singh, 53 last week, also had a week to remember tying for sixth with Rickie Fowler.

What Scott said: “It's amazing in a couple weeks how quickly things turn around. I've played really well the last couple of weeks, and a couple of those guys who were so outstanding last summer haven't played that great. You feel like the gap is really not that big at all. So you've got to keep some things in perspective and not get panicky.

“But I know my window is much smaller than Jordan, Rory, Rickie, Jason and a whole list of other good, young players. So I can't afford to sit back and just wait for it to happen. I've got to keep working on making it happen.”
