After pars on the first seven holes, Scott birdied the eighth and then holed a 133-yard shot with a pitching wedge for his eagle-3 at the par-5 9th. He birdied the 10th, although bogeys followed on the 12th and 15th. He had birdies on the last two holes.
 
'I had an amazing slice of luck on the ninth,' Scott said. 'But after I birdied 10 and was 4-under for the last three holes, that sealed the deal for me.'
 
The expected threat from Colin Montgomerie never materialized. The Scotsman shot a 74 to finish at 280.
