The United States has ended its 11 year drought in the golf’s World Cup thanks to Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland. The pair shot a five under 67 on Sunday to give the U.S. the win.
“We really clicked. It’s fantastic to win for the U.S.,” Woodland said.
The American victory was the first since Tiger Woods and David Duval claimed the title 11 years ago. The event was annual up until 2009, and this year’s tournament was the first in the new biennial format.
Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell led by two strokes going into the final round but could only manage an even-par 72 to finish tied for fourth with Australia, the Netherlands and Scotland.
