2005 Franklin Templeton Shootout
Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples
November 7-13, 2005

Huston, Perry Win Shootout

Kenny Perry and John Huston fired a 13-under 59 in Sunday's scramble round to win The Franklin Templeton Shootout by one stroke over Fred Couples and Adam Scott.

Perry and Huston used a string of six straight birdies on the back nine to take the lead over a low-scoring field. They finished the three-day event at 30-under-par 186 to split a $630,000 paycheck.

Couples and Scott, who held a two-stroke lead over Perry and Huston after the second round, started strong, but cooled off down the stretch. After making just three birdies on their last eight holes, they finished with a 10-under 62 to reach 29-under-par 187.

Tournament host Greg Norman and partner Steve Elkington stole the spotlight early on by tying the tournament's scramble record with a 17-under 55 to finish in fourth place at minus-26.
