2012 Players Championship Winner: Matt Kuchar Earns Win At 13-Under

Matt Kuchar held off the field to win The Players Championship by two strokes at the TPC At Sawgrass. Kuchar recorded a final round of 70 to get to 13-under for the tournament. A birdie on 16 provided some breathing room heading into the final two holes.

Rickie Fowler, Martin Laird, Zach Johnson and Ben Curtis all tie for second finishing at 11-under. Luke Donald checks in at 9-under while Bo Van Pelt, Jhonattan Vegas and Kevin Na all finished at 8-under.

Na entered Sunday's final round with a one stroke lead over Kuchar but struggled his way to a four-over par final round. David Toms and Carl Pettersson round out the top 10 finishing at 7-under.
