I know this is week’s old news, but it’s pretty cool anyway. Vijay Singh overtook Tiger Woods to become the number 1 player in Golf:
Pick your metaphor – water running over a rock, wind ripping across a sand dune, the ocean washing up against the shore. Whatever the image, for the last three years Vijay Singh has been the unstoppable force of nature doggedly eroding golf’s seemingly immovable object: Tiger Woods and his No. 1 World Ranking. On Monday, Singh prevailed.
It was the third time this year that Singh has had a chance to surpass Woods, but late birdies at the PGA Championship and the NEC Invitational kept Woods decimal points ahead of his rival. This time, however, the 41-year-old Singh would not be denied. size=1[/size]
He just won the Bell Canadian Open. Mike Weir had a chance to finish him off on the last hole of his round, and the second playoff hole, but he missed both putts, and Vijay put the nail in the coffin on the third playoff hole.
