Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland combined for a 5-under 67 in fourballs on Sunday, giving the United States a two-stroke victory and its first World Cup title since Tiger Woods and David Duval won the event in 2000. Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell had a two-shot lead going into the final day, but fell back to a tie for fourth with an even-par final round.

“You think of all the sporting events, and you think of all the teams that become world champions, and in golf there are not that many opportunities to be world champions,” said Kuchar. “So to represent the United States of America and become world champions just feels great.”

“We really clicked,” said Woodland. “We came here hoping to have some fun, but we set a goal out to win. “It’s a tough format, and both of us picked each other up when the other one got in trouble.”

England’s Ian Poulter and Justin Rose had the best round of the final day, a 9-under 63, and tied for second place with Germany’s Martin Kaymer and Alex Cejka. “To go and shoot nine-under par in foursomes is crazy,” said Poulter. “When we look back at rounds of golf, that’s why we play golf, and to have that much fun with a few holes to play, like to birdie 15 and to eagle 16, was great.”
