Matt Kuchar poses with his trophy after winning the Mayakoba Golf Classic on Sunday

  • Matt Kuchar shot a final round 69 to beat Danny Lee to the Mayakoba Classic
  • The American endured a nervy final day but held on to break his trophy drought
  • Kuchar admitted his 2018 season had been a disappointment after his victory
  • He has qualified for the Sentry Tournament of Champions after one-shot win

Matt Kuchar had gone four years, six months and three weeks since his last PGA Tour victory.

The last few holes Sunday at the Mayakoba Golf Classic must have felt just as long.

Kuchar started the final round with a four-shot lead and made only two bogeys in the first 67 holes he played at El Camaleon Golf Club. And then he made back-to-back bogeys, Danny Lee holed a birdie putt from off the 16th green, and Kuchar had no margin for error.
