Matt Kuchar finished off an uneventful 18th and wins The Players Championship by two strokes over Rickie Fowler, Martin Laird and others.

Kuchar finished the day at 2-under par for his final round and at 13-under par for the tournament. After a bogey on the opening hole, Kuchar came back with birdies at the fourth, ninth, 12th and 16th before he dropped a stroke on the 17th.

Rickie Fowler made a late charge and finishes tied for second with Martin Laird, Zach Johnson and Ben Curtis at 11-under. Fowler birdied two of the last three holes. Johnson and Curtis finished with final round scores of 68.

Kevin Na entered play on Sunday with a one shot lead over Kuchar but struggled his way to a 4-over final round and finishes at 8-under.
