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 all.

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.
