2012 Players Championship Leaderboard Recap: Matt Kuchar Takes Home Title

Matt Kuchar was able to fight off a host of charging golfers to take home the 2012 Players Championship title with a score of 13-under.

Kuchar entered the day one stroke back of Kevin Na, who fell off the pace Sunday. While Kuchar finished with a round of two-under on Sunday, he was chased by Martin Laird who used a Sunday round of five-under to contend with Kuchar for the title before coming up two strokes short at 11-under. Zach Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Ben Curtis also came close to reaching Kuchar, but also came up short at 11-under as well.

This is the fourth career win for the 33-year-old Kuchar, his first since winning The Barclays in 2010.
