Singh wins again and moves to world no. 3

Four years on from winning the same tournament to become World Number One for the first time, Fiji's Vijay Singh won the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, Norton, Massachusetts with an amazing final round of 63 for a five stroke win over Canadian Mike Weir. By winning his second straight FedEx Cup tournament Singh holds a big lead in the chase for the $10,000,000 prize as well as moving up to World Number 3, an improvement of 2 positions.

Gregory Havret got up and down from the bunker at 18 to win the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles by a stroke from Graeme Storm after a round of 70 gave him a 14 under par total. It was Havret’s second victory on Scottish soil, after he won the 2007 Scottish Open. The win takes the Frenchman to world number 85, a jump of 59 places.

This week's other winners were Shintaro Kai at the KBC Augusta on the Japan Tour, Scott Hend at the Pertamina Indonesia President Invitational on the Asian Tour, Antti Ahokas at the ECCO Tour Championship on the Challenge Tour and Kent Eger at the Seaforth Country Classic on the Canadian Tour.
