Vijay Singh not concerned with No.1 loss
Fiji's Vijay Singh took losing his world number one spot to U.S. Masters champion Tiger Woods in his stride after finishing eight strokes off the lead in a tie for fifth
Woods dislodged Singh at the top of the rankings after he beat fellow American Chris DiMarco on the first playoff hole to win his fourth green jacket, but the Fijian indicated he would be aiming to reclaim it soon.
"It doesn't concern me very much, it's a long season," said Singh after returning a level-par 72.
The deposed world number one was at odds with his putting all week, his reason for never really challenging for the lead.
"I just couldn't get the feel of it, couldn't get the pace," Singh said.
"I tried everything.
"I'm not putting badly. I just can't get a feel in my hands, so I'm just going to continue to work on it."
Singh played the final round with defending champion Phil Mickelson and there was no hint of animosity between the pair after Friday's much-publicised spat over spike marks.
"We had a great day out there," Mickelson said after finishing a stroke behind Singh in 10th place.
"It was fun coming here as champion and to wear the green jacket around here," Mickelson added.
