Scott captures Cadillac Championship for 2nd straight win

Publish date:

DORAL, Fla. (AP) Adam Scott has won his second consecutive tournament, making four birdies in his first five holes on the back nine at Doral to help him rally and win the Cadillac Championship by one shot over Bubba Watson.

Scott shot 69 on Sunday on Doral's Blue Monster and finished the week at 12-under 276, scrambling for a wild par on the 18th to clinch the win. He also won last week at The Honda Classic.

Scott made a pair of double-bogeys in a three-hole span on his front nine and at one point was six shots out of the lead. But he birdied six of his final 13 holes, while others succumbed on a windy day at Doral.

It's the second win for Scott in a World Golf Championships event, the other coming at Bridgestone in 2011. He's now a 13-time winner on tour, and hasn't finished lower than second in any of his last three starts.
