Graeme McDowell held off a charge by Keegan Bradley to claim the World Golf Challenge for the second time. The Northern Irishman, who had endured a title drought since his playoff victory here over tournament host Tiger Woods in 2010, ended his 2012 campaign on a winning note as he closed with a four-under-par 68 to post a 17-under total of 271.

McDowell, who won his first major title in the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach in Northern California, coolly sank a six-footer on the 18th green to claim the winner’s cheque for $1 million.

Bradley finished second after signing off with a 69. American Bo Van Pelt (70) was alone in third at 10 under, a stroke better than compatriots Rickie Fowler (69), Jim Furyk (70) and five-time champion Woods 71.
