Singh named European Golfer of the Month
Vijay Singh's back-to-back wins on the US Tour last month has won him the European Golfer of the Month award for April.
The 41-year-old Fijian, an honorary member of the European tour, captured the Huston Open and then followed that by taking the New Orleans HP Classic.
Singh closed with a stunning back nine of 29 to take the New Orleans title by one shot ahead of Masters champion Phil Mickelson and Joe Ogilvie.
It took his US Tour victory tally to 18.
Other players in the running for the European Golfer of the Month award were Spain's Miguel Angel Jiminez, who became the fist multiple winner on the European tour this season when he won the Algarve Open, France's Christian Cevaer, winner of the Canarias Open and Italian Open winner Graeme McDowell but the jury, made up of members of the Golf Writers Association, were unanimous that Singh get the award.
Previous winners this season have been Jiminez (January), world number three Ernie Els (Febuary) and Australian Adam Scott (March).
All four winners will clash later this month at the PGA Championship at Wentworth.
