Vijay Singh already looking forward to 2005

Vijay Singh looked at Sunday as the beginning, not the end.

The 41-year-old Fijian wrapped up one of the greatest years in golf history with his best round of the week, shooting a 5-under 65 to finish ninth at the Tour Championship.

Singh came to East Lake with a chance to become the first player since 1950 to win 10 tournaments in a year. He surged into contention on the front nine, getting as low as 7-under for the round, but bogeys at 16 and 17 ended his hopes.

``It would have been nice to get 10 wins, but I'll take nine,'' Singh said. ``Ten wins is a dream year. That's why it hasn't happened in some 50 years.''

Singh already had a dream year financially, becoming the first player to win $10 million in a season. In fact, he just missed getting to $11 million, coming up $94,834 short on the official money list.

After a short break, Singh will begin preparing for 2005. He doesn't want the year he became the world's No. 1 player to be the pinnacle of his career.

``This is not the end,'' he said. ``I'm just beginning a great career, I hope. I can't wait to get out there and do it again.''

One other thing: Singh clinched his first Vardon Trophy by having the PGA Tour's lowest scoring average (68.84), beating out Ernie Els (68.98).

Tiger Woods, who had captured the award five years in a row, dropped to third at 69.04.
