Day lifts Australia to World Cup wins

By PGATOUR.COM news services

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Jason Day made a 7-foot par-saving putt on the 16th hole while Thomas Bjorn bogeyed as the Australian won his first tournament in nearly three years at the ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf at Royal Melbourne.

Day's closing 70 left him with a 10-under total of 274, two-strokes ahead of Bjorn (71).

"I'm just glad I held on," Day said.

Adam Scott finished third after a 66, three strokes behind. Scott, trying to win his third tournament in a row, shot 75 on the opening day, including a 9 on the 12th hole, and spent the rest of the tournament trying to catch up.

Day won $1.2 million and Australia won the team portion of the World Cup as Day and Scott, who each holed approach shots for eagles Sunday, also shared the $600,000 first-place prize.

"That was my fault that we were behind for the first round," Scott said. "...But I got my act together."
