MELBOURNE - Jason Day helped end a 24-year winless drought for Australia at the World Cup on Sunday and took the event's individual honour in an emotional double-triumph after losing eight relatives to Typhoon Haiyan. He combined with reigning US Masters champion Adam Scott in storming to "team" victory by a massive 10 shots over the United States, claiming an Australian success for the first time since Wayne Grady and Peter Fowler captured the title in 1989 in Spain. The Filipino-Australian also won the individual honour along with a $US1.2 million first prize cheque in posting a final round 70 to defeat Denmark's Thomas Bjorn by two shots with a 10-under par tally. He started the final round one shot ahead of Bjorn and despite a bogey at the first, he was never behind after holing a 95-yard wedge shot for eagle at the par four, sixth hole. –AFP
