Marana, AZ (Sports Network) - Matt Kuchar never trailed in the final match
Sunday en route to a 2 & 1 victory over 2012 champion Hunter Mahan at the
World Golf Championship - Accenture Match Play Championship.
Kuchar trailed for just three holes the entire week at The Golf Club at Dove
Mountain. The win was his first WGC title and his fifth PGA Tour victory in
Mahan was trying to join Tiger Woods as the only two repeat winners at this
championship. Mahan was the first champion to reach the following years' final
since 2006 winner Geoff Ogilvy made the 2007 finals.
When Kuchar parred the fourth to go 1-up, that ended Mahan's streak of 169
consecutive holes at this event without trailing in a match.
In the consolation match, Jason Day held off 2010 champion Ian Poulter, 1-up.
