Tiger Woods might be the best player in the world, but he did not have enough to catch World #2 Vijay Singh today at the Buick Open. Vijay successfully defended his title finishing at -24 winning by 4 over Woods and Zach Johnson.

Woods turned at even par 36, but then turned it to another level for the back nine. Some of the highlights included:

Tiger driving the 341 yard par 4 14th into the group of Olin Brown and Steve Lowry. Olin was lining up his birdie putt and was forced to mark Tiger’s ball before he could putt. Tiger then made the eagle putt, for a tournament tying 3rd eagle of the week, and his second on the 14th during the week.

Tiger also made a birdie on the 17th and after making it, cupped his ear, Hulk Hogan style trying to hear the crowd. Thus, only needing a par to shoot 29.

Vijay putting like a true amateur, leaving many putts in the hole and 4 feet short.

Overall, there was a lot of hype, but Tiger bogied the 18th hole and the tournament fell flat on its face. Vijay had a 4 shot lead going into 18, made an easy par, and won his 16th PGA Tour event after the age of 40.

In his post round interview, Vijay said, “I’m playing better this year than I did last year. I’m excited. I just hope I can follow what I did last year. It’s going to be almost impossible, but I’m going to give it a shot.” Hopefully, Vijay will be able to put it together during the PGA.
