ATLANTA -– Vijay Singh has won the FedEx Cup, finishing four rounds at the Tour Championship to clinch the PGA Tour's points race and earn a $10 million bonus.
Singh won the first two playoff events, building such a large lead that no one could catch him at East Lake unless the 45-year-old Fijian withdrew or was disqualified. He closed with even-par 70 and finished at 9-over 289 for the tournament, far behind the leaders.
It was the second year of the FedEx Cup, and the second consecutive year the finale lacked drama. Last year, Tiger Woods led by such a big margin he could have skipped the Tour Championship.
Singh gets $9 million in cash. The other $1 million is deferred compensation.
