Singh wins the Telsus Skins Game

Vijay Singh made a 3-foot birdie putt worth $50,000 on the fourth playoff hole Tuesday and won the Telus Skins Game with a total of $140,000 and six skins.

Ian Leggatt of Canada, who missed a 40-foot putt for birdie on the fourth extra hole, was second with five skins and $95,000, while defending champion Sergio Garcia finished third with five skins and $85,000. John Daly was fourth in the $360,000 event with two skins and $40,000.

Garcia, who missed an eagle putt that would have given him the championship, and Singh birdied the par-5 18th to force the playoff.

The foursome played the 18th a second time with Daly, Singh and Leggatt all getting birdies. Garcia was eliminated with a par.

The threesome then all parred No. 1, a par-5.

Daly was eliminated on the par-5 18th with a par while Singh and Leggatt each had a birdies.

In the skins format, each hole has a dollar value and the lowest score wins the "skin." If there's a tie, the money is carried over to the next hole.

Garcia led after Monday's first round with $60,000, followed by Legatt ($35,000) and Singh ($15,000). Daly was shut out on the first day.
