Sunday, August 24, 2008. (AP) -- Vijay Singh won The Barclays for a record fourth time Sunday, matching Sergio Garcia with a long birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff and finishing off the Spaniard with
another birdie on the second extra hole.
The 45-year-old Fijian closed with a 1-under 70 to match Garcia (70) and Kevin Sutherland (68) at 8-under 276 on the sun-baked Ridgewood Country Club course, the first-time site after 41 seasons at Westchester Country Club.
Singh, the 1993, 1995 and 2006 winner at Westchester, earned 11,000 FedEx Cup points in the playoff opener to take the lead with 109,500 points -- 5,125 ahead of second-place Garcia. The WGC-Bridgestone Invitational winner three weeks ago at Firestone, Singh also earned $1.26 million for his 33rd PGA Tour victory.
