Golf: Curtis breaks six-year drought

Published: April 24, 2012

SAN ANTONIO: Former British Open champion Ben Curtis registered his first PGA Tour victory in six years by holding off a pair of pursuers down the stretch to claim an emotional two-stroke victory at the Texas Open. Curtis, the 2003 British Open winner, made a 22-foot par-saving putt at the 17th hole and then sank a birdie putt at the last to finish with a flourish for a level-par 72 and nine-under 279. “I don’t know how I did it,” said Curtis. Meanwhile, Matt Every and 21-year-old John Huh were tied for second at 281.
