Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh battle to win world’s No.1

The tournament result is almost a sideshow as Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh slug it out for the world's No.1 ranking in the final round of the $US5million ($7.23m) Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Massachusetts today.

Singh has a three-shot lead over Woods, and only has to stay in front of him to end Tiger's record 334 weeks at the top of the world rankings.

They are playing together in the last group.

After shooting an eight-under-par 63 on Saturday, Singh tied the lowest round of the day yesterday with a three-under-par 68 and a three-round total of 199, 14 under par.

Woods shot a two-under-par 69 to slip a shot further back, informs the Australian.

Singh would take over the top spot in the world rankings if he finishes tied or ahead of Woods.

"I’m looking forward to it. I’m in a little better position, I’m 3-up," Singh said Sunday with a laugh. "I’ve played with Tiger many times and I enjoy playing with him. He’s a great player. I’m ready to play tomorrow. ... I’m just going to go out there and try to win the golf tournament."

Singh has already won five of them this year — including the PGA Championship, his third major. He leads the tour’s money list by an ever-widening margin, and he is running away with the player of the year award, reports MSNBC News.
