SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Australia's Adam Scott cruised to a three-shot victory at the $6 million Singapore Open on Monday, capping a fine fourth-round 68 with a birdie to become the first three-times winner of the event.

The Australian, a winner here in 2005 and 2006, returned to the Sentosa Golf Club early on Monday to finish the weather-hit co-sanctioned tournament on 17-under-par.

Denmark's Anders Hansen finished second after a 68 while U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell (70) was tied for third with Sweden's Rikard Karlberg (67) on 13-under-par.
