6:43 am on 16 May 2012

The American golfer Matt Kuchar has won the US PGA Players Championship in Florida by two shots to secure the biggest win of his career.

Kuchar shot a final round of two-under-par 70 to finish the tournament at 13-under, two clear of Scotland's Martin Laird and Americans Zach Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Ben Curtis.

Overnight leader Kevin Na had a disappointing final day, making six bogeys in a 76 that saw him slip back onto a tie for seventh.

Tiger Woods finished in equal 40th place after shooting a one-over par 73 to end the tournament at one-under.
