The American golfer Nick Watney has won his second title this year making some key birdies early then holding on to post a two-shot win at the PGA Tour's AT&T National in Philadelphia.

Watney fired a final round four-under 66 to beat South Korea's KJ Choi.

Australian Adam Scott, who has Steve Williams on his bag, finished tied for third.

Watney, who won the World Golf Championship at Doral four months ago, now leads the PGA Tour money list and the Fed Ex Cup standings.

He also moves to 10th in the world rankings.
