Scott won the tournament last year.

New Zealand's Michael Hendry was furth at 9 under after a 71. Scott Stallings was another stroke back after a 70, and fellow American Boo Weekley had a 74 to finish at 7 under.

South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen was second after a 69.

Grace started the day with a one-shot advantage over Lucas Bjerregaard, but quickly widened the gap when the Dane had a bogey on the first and Grace birdied the second. Bjerregaard finished with an 89.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Bernhard and Jason Langer won the PNC Father-Son Challenge, closing with a 13-under 59 for a two-stroke victory in the better-ball event.

Fourteen-year-old Jason jumped into the lineup Saturday when sister Christina withdrew because of back issues. He's the youngest son to win the event, breaking the mark of 15 set by brother Stefan in 2005.

Davis Love III and son Dru also shot a 59 to finish second.
