Singh wins Toshiba Classic

Vijay Singh got up-and-down for birdie with a putter from off the green on the final hole for a one-shot victory in the Toshiba Classic on Sunday.

The 55-year-old World Golf Hall of Fame member edged Tommy Tolles, Tom Pernice Jr. and Scott McCarron to win for the first time as an individual on the PGA TOUR Champions. He teamed with Carlos Franco to win last year's Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge.

Singh has played a limited schedule on PGA TOUR Champions while continuing to compete on the PGA TOUR, where he has 34 career victories.

"I just put a lot of pressure on myself when I first came out here. Every time I teed up, you know, I was – I thought I had to win. The more I did that, the more I didn't win, the harder it got," Singh said. "This week was a little different. Last week I was sick with cold and flu, and this week kind of started out that way, so my expectation wasn't very high. I just came out here, I said, 'I'm just going to go out and play.' "

The Fijian closed with a 5-under 66 for a three-day total of 11-under 202 at Newport Beach Country Club.

"I always knew I was going to win out here, it was just a matter of time," Singh said. "I was going to play a lot more this year anyway, so this is a good start and hopefully I'm going to win a few more."
