SUVA, Australia (AP) — American Matt Kuchar shot a second-straight three-under 69 on Sunday to ease to a four-stroke victory over Australia's Aron Price at the Fiji International.

World No. 16 Kuchar had a total of 4-under 284 and was never further back than second place at the Natadolo Bay Golf Club.

Kuchar, with father Peter as caddie, had five birdies and one bogey in a composed final round in which he eased away from Price who trailed by two shots overnight and finished with a 71.

Local favorite Vijay Singh shot a course record 65 to continue his rise after a first round 78 to claim a share of third place with New Zealander Ryan Fox and Australian Nick Cullen.
