Vijay Singh wins Seniors' Toshiba Classic

WHAT: US PGA Tour Champions (Seniors)
Toshiba Classic
WHERE: Newport Beach Country Club
Newport Beach, Califofrnia.
WINNER: Vijay Singh
MONEY: $270,000
SCORE: 11-under 202
BUZZ: Singh birdied the closing par 5 to lock up his second senior victory, holding off the trio of Tommy Tolles, Tom Pernice Jr. and Scott McCarron by one shot.
Singh finished in 5-under 66 to overtake Pernice, the second-round leader who shot a 69 on Sunday. … McCarron was closing on Singh with birdies on Nos. 15 and 16 before a three-putt bogey on the par-3 17th stalled.
Fiji-born Singh hit 81.5 percent of the greens in regulation for the week. A 34-time US PGA Tour winner and former World No. 1, the 55-year-old Singh splits his starts between the regular US PGA Tour and its over-50s equivalent.
 He missed the cut in three of his four US PGA Tour starts this season, and he finished T-43 in his most recent Senior Tour start at the Cologuard Classic.

Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie, who have each made a fortune on the US Senior Tour, did not do so well in this one. The Florida-based German finished 58th with a three-over-par total while the 54-year-old Scot finished T62 on five-over-par.
Englishman Paul Broadhurst finished T22 with a three-under total.
