American Hunter Mahan, ice-cool when it mattered the most, held his nerve over the closing stretch to win the biggest title of his career by two shots at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday.

The world number one Tiger Woods, produced his worst finish on the U.S. circuit after closing with a 77,the highest final score as a professional. while Phil Mickelson was not so lucky as well, he tumbled into a share of 46th, and wasted the chance to reach the top of the rankings for the first time.

Kenny Perry produced some amazing shot at the final round, when he made this long eagle at the 6th hole, he finished 2-under total of 278 into a share of 19th place.

However, the day belongs to Hunter Mahan, three strokes off the pace going into the final round, the 28-year-old charged into contention with a sizzling front nine of five-under 30, and made two clutch putts to save par over the last four holes to post a 12-under total of 268.

Hunter Mahan won the Bridgestone Invitational for his first World Golf Championship title, and the victory also gains him a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.
