KAVARNA, Bulgaria - Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland defeated Thongchai Jaidee 2&1 in the last few holes of the Volvo World Match-Play Championship Sunday evening. 

Thongchai, at 43 the oldest player in the field, took an early lead and was 2-up on McDowell after the first four holes. But McDowell chipped away at the Thai's lead, whittling it to 1-up at the turn, and then dominated the back nine for the win.

Thongchai had earlier continued his surprise progress into the tournament final by disposing of South African Thomas Aiken 3 & 2 in Sunday's semi-final in cloudless and hot conditions on the Thracian Cliffs course along the Black Sea shoreline.
