Matt Kuchar had two top-fives in two weeks in Australia.

After a pair of top-five finishes in two weeks in Australia, Matt Kuchar now turns his attention towards the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.

But first, a vacation in Fiji.

"It’s basically on the way to L.A. and Tiger Wood’s World Challenge, so I figured we had to stop because it’s just on the way," Kuchar said. "We’ve had two weeks to enjoy ourselves here and now get to see another part of the world and another part of the country and then going to Fiji." 

Kuchar finished second last week to Adam Scott in the Australian Masters, then was solo fourth this week in the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf. It was his second start in the World Cup; he won the team crown with Gary Woodland in 2011 in China.

Kuchar partnered with Kevin Streelman for the United States, but the pair finished 10 shots behind Aussies Scott and Jason Day.

"It’s good for golf down here if the Aussies win and I would have liked to have given them a better fight," Kuchar said. "But it’s fun to be down, fun to represent your country and it’s an opportunity that I was really looking forward to and had a great time again."
