Glover produced a surge on the back nine to secure a comfortable five-stroke victory in Bermuda.

Glover produced a surge on the back nine to secure a comfortable five-stroke victory in Bermuda.

The U.S. Open champion produced a back-nine surge as British Open winner Stewart Cink hit trouble on the same stretch of the par-71 Port Royal Golf Club, as Glover posted a 66 to win by five strokes from Masters champion Angel Cabrera of Argentina.

Glover had led Cink by two strokes after Tuesday's opening round but was reeled in by his Presidents Cup team-mate, Cink carding four birdies to be out in 32 to Glover's 34.

However, Cink's form then collapsed, as the Turnberry winner dropped shots at the 12th and 13th and ran up a double bogey on the 15th.

An eagle three at the 17th made some amends but Cink then bogeyed the last to post a one-under 70, leaving him on five-under-par.

Glover moved back into the lead with birdies at the 10th, 11th, 15th and 17th before he too bogeyed the last to finish on 11-under-par for the tournament.

Argentina's Cabrera matched Glover's 66 to add to his opening 70 and moved into second on six-under-par, while USPGA champion YE Yang of South Korea closed with a 70 to finish in fourth place on one-under.
