ANTALYA, Turkey (AP) - U.S. Amateur champion Steven Fox and Chris Williams each shot 2-under 69 on Sunday to help the United States win the rain-shortened World Amateur Team Championship with a record score.

Fox, from Hendersonville, Tenn.; Williams, from Moscow, Idaho; and Justin Thomas of Goshen, Ky., combined for a 54-hole total of 24-under 404. Thomas shot a non-counting 70 on Sunday.

They teamed to beat Mexico by five strokes at Antalya Golf Club to give the United States it 14th Eisenhower Trophy title.

``It's fun to win as an individual,'' said Williams, a senior at the University of Washington. ``But to win as a team is awesome and it doesn't get any better than doing it as representative of the USA.''

The Americans also broke the records for 18 and 36 holes.

``I would go back to the first round where Chris shot 64 and Justin shot 67 and we were 13 under,'' Fox said. ``We just built from there.''

Mexico's Sebastian Vazquez was the low individual at 15-under 199.
