Stuart Appleby came from four shots behind to successfully defend his title at the Mercedes Championship at Kapalua in Hawaii.

After an opening round of 74, which put him ahead of just one player in this 31 man field, Appleby played his next three rounds in 22 under par for a single stroke victory over Jonathan Kaye and a jump of three places in the Official World Golf Ranking to number 11.
