Vijay Singh US Masters Golfers

Fijian, Vijay Singh, will never set the world alight with charisma or charm, but the 44-year-old has put paid to the belief that golfers over 40 can’t quite cut it.
Singh did in fact have one of his most successful outings in 2004, at the age of 41. He not only topped the money list, pocketing a whopping US$10 905 166, but he dominated the US tour with nine victories – six wins more than runner-up, Ernie Els. He also walked away with the Vardon Trophy for a stroke average of 68.84.
He turned professional in 1988, entered the European Tour and had a relatively good start to his career. He won the 1993 PGA Rookie of the Year Award in his debut year on tour, but it was only in 1998 that the floodgates opened. First he claimed the PGA Championships with a 70 66 67 68, his first Major, and then he marched on to the Augusta National where he beat the legendary Ernie Els by three strokes, and added the coveted the 2000 US Masters title and the Green Jacket to his collection of trophies.
The next couple of years went by relatively quietly until 2003, when he again had a resurgence of form. He won four tournaments, beat Tiger Woods to top the money list with US$7 573 907, and had 18 top-ten finishes.
In 2004 he achieved his 12th consecutive Top Ten finish, only two behind the incredible Jack Nicklaus’ all-time record. He went on to take his third major, winning the 2004 PGA Championship, and with this win came the Number 1 in the official World Golf rankings, ending Tiger Wood’s 264-week streak at the top of the golf world.
2005 heralded a battle royal between Singh and Woods for the coveted number one spot, and Tiger finally stamped his authority with his win at the 2006 US Masters.
Currently Vijay Singh joins the ranks of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Zach Johnson as the only multiple winners in the 2007 PGA Tour season.
Oh yes, he has shown he can take on and beat the very best. He has also won an incredible 19 times since turning 40, tops the list of the most PGA tour wins by a foreigner with 31, and is only the second man to have reached $50 million in career earnings.
