Jacobson finished with a 70 and another bogey-free round. But he struggled this time to break par, two-putting six of his first nine holes before finally sinking a 7-footer for birdie on No. 12.
Relieved, Jacobson threw his hands up in victory when the putt dropped.
But his final birdie was on the par-4 15th.
Jacobson was unable to replicate the five straight birdies he sank on hole Nos. 14 through 18 in the first round that morning.
"I certainly felt with five holes to go I could do something," Jacobson said. "I had good feelings coming from the morning. I gave myself good looks on all five of them. Just didn't happen."
J.B. Holmes had the 54-hole lead at 12 under but fell apart from the get-go in the final round. His had a double bogey on the par-4 first -- overshooting the green for the second time of the day -- then bogeyed four of his next seven holes.
Holmes was 4 over in the final round and finished 8 under.
Scott got his first top-10 finish this year, two weeks after he missed the cut at Quail Hollow and tied for 26th at The Players Championship.
Scott's last three PGA Tour victories have come in Texas. He won the Houston Open in 2007 and the Byron Nelson two years ago.
DIVOTS: James Driscoll, who lost to Zach Johnson in a playoff last year at La Cantera, began the day one stroke back but couldn't keep up while shooting even par in the third round. He finished at 9 under. ... Sergio Garcia, a player consultant on the design of TPC San Antonio, was 1 under. ... John Daly withdrew because of hip problems after double-bogeying two of his first four holes in the final round. It's the second straight withdraw for Daly, who did the same at the Zurich Classic in April.
