American duo Matt Kuchar and Harris English cruised to an unprecedented third QBE Shootout title after shattering records on Sunday.

Kuchar and English became the most successful pairing at the PGA Tour event thanks to a nine-stroke victory, having added to their 2013 and 2016 triumphs in Naples, Florida.

The dominant pair reached 37 under following three rounds over three different formats – a new record at the QBE Shootout.

Kuchar and English posted a 12-under 60 in the fourball format as they also broke the record for margin of victory, eclipsing the seven-shot win they celebrated in 2013.

“As a team, we crushed it this week,” English said. “You’ve got to putt well in all formats and we did that. Matt made a lot of clutch putts, especially on the first day.

“It felt like pretty easy golf out here. It was a lot of fun to play.”

Kuchar added: “We’ve got an incredible record. We’re going to have a hard time catching that record.”

Defending champions Rory Sabbatini and Kevin Tway finished as runners-up at Tiburon Golf Club alongside Mackenzie Hughes and Lanto Griffin, and Sean O’Hair and Kevin Na.

Billy Horschel and Brendon Todd, Tony Finau and Cameron Champ, and Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson were two strokes further back at 26 under.
