Putting machines Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland yesterday claimed the United States' first golf World Cup since Tiger Woods and David Duval lifted the trophy 11 years ago.

The Americans grabbed the advantage from an Irish tailspin as tournament favourites Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell endured a sloppy final day at Mission Hills in southern China.

On the greens, Kuchar was in sublime form, helping the pair hole six birdies to finish top of the leader board on 5 under 67 and 24 under overall.
