Americans Steve Stricker and Sean O’Hair shot a superb eight-under par final round in Florida on Sunday to claim the QBE Shootout trophy by two shots from Shane Lowry and Graeme McDowell.
Irish duo Lowry and McDowell started the third and final day in a share of the lead with the Americans at 18-under-par.
After the opening rounds were played in a scramble and alternate-shot formats, the third round was played in a better-ball format, where the best score from either player was counted.

Both pairs went to the turn in four under par, but the Americans pulled away on the home stretch with two more birdies and an eagle on the 17th to seal the win with a 26-under par total.
The best round of the day was that of Zach Johnson and Charley Hoffman, who carded a 63 that included a back nine of five birdies and an eagle to finish in eighth place.
Coming home in third place were Pat Perez and Brian Harman on 22-under-par, while Lexi Thompson – the only woman to play in the tournament – and Tony Finau finished in a three-way tie for fourth position on 21-under par alongside Brendan Steele and Keegan Bradley, Gary Woodland and Daniel Berger.
