MARANA, Arizona (AP) -- Luke Donald spoiled Martin Kaymer's rise to No. 1 in the world by winning the Match Play Championship with a week so dominant that he never played the 18th hole.
With the match tied at the turn, Donald won two straight holes and finished off Kaymer on the 16th hole for a 3-and-2 victory and his first World Golf Championship title.
Donald played only 89 holes over six matches and never trailed in any of them. It was only the third win in the last five years for the 33-year-old Englishman, who will go to No. 3 in the world.
The next world ranking will be Kaymer, Lee Westwood, Donald and Graeme McDowell. It's the first time since March 15, 1992, that the top four spots have been occupied by Europeans.
