Day's closing 70 left him with a 10-under 274, two strokes ahead of Bjorn with a 71.

Adam Scott finished third after a 66, three strokes behind.

Scott, trying to win his third tournament in a row, shot 75 on the opening day, including a nine on the 12th hole, and spent the rest of the tournament trying to catch up.

Day won $1.2 million and Australia won the team portion of the World Cup as Day and Scott, who each holed approach shots for eagles Sunday, also shared the $600,000 first-place prize.
