Stuart Appleby: Back-nine 33 earns Appleby back-door Top-10 at Honda Classic

Stuart Appleby turned in a 2-over-par 39-33=72 in the final round of The Honda Classic, but it was good enough for a top 10 at 5-under 275.  The Aussie seemingly fell out of contention for a high finish when he followed a birdie at the par-5 third with five bogeys over the next six holes. With his full attention on PGA National’s back nine, he settled for seven pars while sinking a 33’2″ birdie putt on the par-4 12th and ending his day with a 20’4″ birdie on the par-5 18th. This is Appleby’s second top 10 of 2013-14
