U.S. Amateur champion Steven Fox and Chris Williams each shot 2-under 69 on Sunday to help the United States win the rain-shortened World Amateur Team Championship with a record score.

Fox, Williams and Justin Thomas combined for a 54-hole total of 24-under 404. Thomas shot a non-counting 70 on Sunday.

They teamed up to beat Mexico by five strokes at Antalya Golf Club to give the United States it 14th Eisenhower Trophy title.

''It's fun to win as an individual,'' Williams said, ''but to win as a team is awesome and it doesn't get any better than doing it as representative of the USA.''

The Americans also broke the records for 18 and 36 holes.

Mexico's Sebastian Vazquez was the low individual at 15-under 199.
