Stuart Appleby: Appleby fires a 65 in Humana Challenge final round, finishes 9th
Stuart Appleby posted a tidy 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Humana Challenge to finish his week at 21-under 267.
Appleby picked up eight birdies and handed back one bogey on his lap around Palmer Private at PGA West, taking advantage of four of the five par 5s. While technically the clubhouse leader until Zach Johnson posts in a matter of minutes, the Aussie will record his best finish of the 2013-14 season. His previous best was a T23 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Classic. If there is a lesson to be reinforced, it is that he still has the ability to show up in shootouts on easy courses.
