Justin Thomas didn't need to be at his best as he eased to a four-stroke victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron.
The American took a three-shot lead into the final round at the Firestone Country Club with Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter in hot pursuit.
But McIlroy's closing 73 and Poulter's four-over-par 74 meant neither was a factor on Sunday, the pair dropping down the leaderboard to finish on tied-sixth and tied-10th respectively.
Thomas signed for a one-under 69 - which featured two birdies and just a single bogey - to finish four strokes ahead of compatriot Kyle Stanley.
At one stage Stanley and Jason Day closed to within two shots of Thomas but the pair then dropped shots on consecutive holes and with Thomas then birdieing 13, victory was effectively sealed.
The win is perfect preparation for Thomas ahead of this week's PGA Championship, where he will be the defending champion after claiming his first major title at the event last year.
World number one Dustin Johnson and Thorbjorn Olesen shared a tie for third place after both fired six-under-par 64s to surge up the leaderboard while US Open champion Brooks Koepka finished fifth a further stroke adrift on -9.
Day dropped five shots over the closing six holes to tumble down to -7 and a share of 10th while Marc Leishman and Tommy Fleetwood both signed for over-par final rounds which scuppered any chance of them challenging Thomas, settling for tied-14th.
Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm both started the day on eight-under par but both registered a disappointing round of 73 to finish on -5 in tied17th position.
Eight-time winner of the event Tiger Woods shot a three-over-par 73 to finish on even for the tournament.
