American Hunter Mahan ended Rory McIlroy’s bid to become world number one for the first time with a 2&1 victory over the Northern Irishman in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

With McIlroy initially failing to replicate the stunning form he produced earlier in the day on the way to a 3&1 semi-final win over third-ranked Briton Lee Westwood, Mahan took advantage with a seven-birdie display.
