Former British Open Champion, Ben Curtis captured an emotional victory in San Antonio this week at the Valero Texas Open.  Curtis in head to toe FJ performance apparel, opened the week with back to back 67's, racing up the leaderboard with the 10-under par total.  Blustery winds made scoring difficult on Saturday as Curtis shot a one over par 73, despite the over par score Curtis retained the lead heading into the final round.

The tough scoring conditions from Saturday carried over to the final round, but Curtis (DryJoys Tour and StaSof) kept his head down and grinded out a front nine 35 to remain ahead of his challengers.  Then Curtis made early bogey's on the back nine to drop into a tie for the lead.  He fought back, making a string of pars before holing an unlikely 23-footer on the 17th hole to remain one ahead of his competition.  On the final hole, Curtis's challengers failed to make birdie giving Curtis two putts for the win.  He would finish the tournament out in style, holing the 12-footer for birdie and a two stroke victory.

This is Curtis's fourth PGA Tour win and first in the last six years adding post round, "It's been a tough couple of years just fighting through it." The win moves Curtis to the 28th spot on the FedEx Cup rankings.
