Matt Kuchar believes he is now playing some of the most consistent golf of his career after beating Hunter Mahan in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship final.

Kuchar edged to a 2 and 1 victory against last year's champion Mahan, who had ended Ian Poulter's hopes of victory in the semi-finals, to clinch the championship that involves 64 of the best players in the world.

"I did a great job of being excited to hit the next shot," Kuchar said afterwards. "I knew that if I was to have a lapse of any sort mentally, physically ... that the match could swing, momentum could swing pretty quickly. It's easy to go astray here.

"Match play I find to be such an amazing, unique format, so much fun to play and so much pressure. It seems like each hole there's so much momentum riding and so much pressure on every hole. To come out on top after six matches of playing guys, the top 64 guys in the world, it's an incredible feeling.

"I've become so much more consistent of a player. I was good in my younger days but streaky. I could be really good for a while and then struggle. And now I feel like I'm a golfer that can hit quality shots week in and week out, day in and day out."

Poulter enjoyed a fine week, beating Stephen Gallacher, Bo van Pelt, Tim Clark and Steve Stricker to reach the last four, but found Mahan too tough to see off and then lost to Jason Day in the third-place play-off.
