Mahan trumps McIlroy for Match Play title

Hunter Mahan tripped up Rory McIlroy's bid to Accenture Match Play Championship.

The victory was Mahan's fourth on the PGA Tour and his second at a prestigious World Golf Championships event. Mahan won the Bridgestone Invitational two years ago, but this is Mahan's biggest win to date.

Mahan pocketed $1.4 million for the victory and is expected to move to No. 9 in Monday's new world rankings.

Had McIlroy beaten Mahan Sunday at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, the reigning U.S. Open champion would've ascended to No. 1 in the rankings.
