11/23 00:39 CST Cullen wins Aussie Masters, Scott bid falls short Cullen wins Aussie Masters, Scott bid falls short MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) --- Australian lefthander Nick Cullen shot a 3-under 69 Sunday to win the Australian Masters by one stroke over Adam Scott, ending Scott's attempt for a third consecutive victory in the tournament. Cullen, who had a four-round total of 9-under 279, saved par on the 18th after hitting his bunker shot to a foot. Scott, who trailed by four strokes after three rounds, shot 68 Sunday and finished tied for second with two other Australians. Scott's 60-foot putt for birdie on the 18th hole curled out and he held the clubhouse lead for about an hour until Cullen finished his round at Metropolitan Golf Club. "We had a great read on the final putt, and I couldn't believe it didn't go in," Scott said. "After all the putts that didn't drop this week, I really needed that one." An eagle at the par-5 fourth and back-to-back birdies at 11 and 12 helped Cullen clinch the win. James Nitties and Josh Younger were tied for second with Scott. Second-ranked Scott now heads to Sydney for an Australian Open showdown with world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, the defending champion.
