SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Australia's Adam Scott made the Texas Open his first PGA Tour victory in two years, shooting a combined 11-under 133 in a 36-hole finale Sunday to edge Fredrik Jacobson by a stroke.

The 2008 Byron Nelson Classic winner, Scott overcame two early bogeys with an eagle on the par-4 17th in his third-round 66, then built his lead with six birdies en route to a closing 67 on the new Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.

Scott survived a closing bogey - his only one in the final round
- when Jacobson missed a 16-footer from the fringe on No. 18 that would've forced a playoff.

Scott finished at 14-under 274 and earned $1,098,000 for his seventh tour victory.
