Phil Mickelson outdueled and pulled away from Scott Verplank to win the Houston Open tournament in Humble, Texas for his first win since the Masters in April of 2010.

Mickelson and Verplank were playing in the final pairing, tied at 13-under-par.

From that point, Lefty as he is called, got rolling with five straight birdies between holes number 9 and 13. He sewed up the tournament with a birdie on the par-3 16th hole, dropping his tee shot within 5 feet while Verplank bogeyed the hole.

Bubba Watson won for the first time on the PGA Tour, coming from six shots down to win the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut, in a three-way playoff.

Watson sank a 3-foot par putt on the second playoff hole to beat Scott Verplank and Corey Pavin, after they all finished at 14-under-par 266.

Pavin was eliminated on the first playoff hole.

Verplank shot a 6-under 64 in the final round, and Pavin and Watson each had a 66.

Justin Rose, coming off his first PGA Tour win earlier in the month at the Memorial Tournament, had a three-stroke lead entering the final round on Sunday, but had a big meltdown on the back nine holes finishing with a 75.

Ostrander, Ohio native Ben Curtis was in the mix until a double bogey on the 12th hole. Two bogeys down the stretch left him with a 3-over 73 and in an eight-way tie for 13th at 10 under par.

Brian Davis set himself up to challenge for his first PGA tour victory.

After a second consecutive bogey-free 65 Saturday, Davis shares the lead with Bryce Molder at 16-under 194 going into the final round of the Colonial.

When Davis got into a playoff last month at Hilton Head with Jim Furyk, Davis called a two-stroke penalty against himself on the extra hole that ensured a victory for the fifth-ranked player in the world. Davis then finished 57th the following week at New Orleans and had missed three consecutive cuts before Colonial.

The 35-year-old and Molder, the second-round leader who finished his 67 Saturday with eight consecutive pars, are hoping for a little luck to finally winning on the PGA Tour.

Molder has four to-10′s this season, but the four-time All-American from Georgia Tech has only one professional victory since leaving college in 2001- on the Nationwide Tour in 2006.

There were 17 players at 11 under or better going into the final round Sunday.

Zach Johnson (64) was a stroke behind the leaders. Ben Crane (64) joined first-round co-leaders Jeff Overton (66) and Jason Bohn (68) in a tie for fourth at 14 under.

Johnson won at Hogan’s Alley with a tournament record 21-under 259, sealing his victory with a pair of birdies in the short span of play between two late weather delays Sunday.

When Johnson dropped-in a 14-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to take a two-stroke lead over 35-year-old Englishman Brian Davis.

Johnson’s closing 6-under 64 left him three strokes ahead of Davis, who had closed at 68.

The delays were because of threatening weather. Light rain fell despite sunny skies after the second delay lasted 46 minutes, a minute shorter than the first one.

Jeff Overton and Ben Crane both shot 67 to finish tied for third at 17 under. Scott Verplank (65) and Bryce Molder (70). who led after the second and third rounds, were another shot back.
