PGATour.com reports that Hunter Mahan shot a 1-under 71 on Sunday to win the Shell Houston Open, edging Carl Pettersson by one shot to become the first two-time champion on TOUR in 2012.
Standing on the 18th tee with a one-stroke lead, Mahan confidently hit his tee shot down the middle of the fairway, then knocked his 203-yard approach to 21 feet. He gave caddie John Wood a high-five when the ball landed safely on the green.
“Absolutely awesome,” Wood said.
Mahan began the day two shots behind Louis Oosthuizen, who lost the lead with two double bogeys on his front nine.
Defending champion Phil Mickelson (71), Keegan Bradley (71), Brian Davis (74) and Jeff Overton (68) all finished 12 under.
