San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Martin Laird matched the course record on Sunday with his 9-under 63, which helped him come from behind and win the Texas Open by two strokes.

Laird, who birdied the final three holes, finished his third PGA Tour victory at 14-under-par 274 at TPC San Antonio.

The Scotsman earned his third straight trip to The Masters. Laird tied for 20th in 2011 and shared 57th last year in his previous trips to Augusta National.

Rory McIlroy got within one of the lead when he birdied the 14th, but ended two back at minus-12 after a final-round 66.

Jim Furyk holed out for eagle on the par-5 18th for a 3-under 69. He shared third place at 11-under with third-round leader Billy Horschel (71) and Charley Hoffman (69), who birdied six of the last eight holes.
