LOS ANGELES: American journeyman Vaughn Taylor ended a PGA Tour title drought of more than a decade with an explosive back nine to clinch a one-shot victory at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in California on Sunday. Taylor began the final round six strokes off the pace but five birdies after the turn propelled him to a closing seven-under 65 as he posted a winning total of 17-under 270. Overnight leader Phil Mickelson had to settle for second place after carding a roller-coaster 72. Swede Jonas Blixt (69) was a further stroke back in third at 15 under.
