Playoff Payoff for Singh at The Barclays
over 4 years ago
Vijay Singh won The Barclays for a record fourth time Sunday, closing out his playoff opponents with birdies on the first two extra holes. After finishing regulation tied with an 8-under 276 total, one of Singh’s playoff opponents dropped a 27-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole. Singh, who wore
glove on Sunday, calmly matched him with a birdie putt of his own from 26 feet and then had a tap-in birdie on the next hole for the victory, the 33rd of his career on the PGA Tour. The 45-year-old Fijian was also best at the Barclays in 1993, 1995 and 2006, although this was the first time the event was held at Ridgewood Country Club. The win moves Singh to the top of the FedEx Cup points race after one event as the Tour now moves to the TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship.
