Vijay Singh is newly crowned world No.1

If success is earned by those who work the hardest, then newly crowned world number one Vijay Singh is a shining example.

It has been a long, and often gruelling, global odyssey for the 41-year-old Fijian but he finally achieved his goal of claiming top spot from Tiger Woods with a three-shot victory in the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday.

Known for the long hours he has always put in on the practice range, U.S. PGA champion Singh has consistently played the best golf in the game for the last 14 months.

After going to head-to-head with Woods in a thrilling final round at the Tournament Players Club of Boston, and prevailing, his acknowledged dominance was at last recognised by the official world rankings, informs Reuters.

"I've achieved what I wanted to do," Singh said. "I won a major. I won quite a lot of tournaments, and at the same time became No. 1 in the world. The whole season has been a great one."

His season looks like the kind that once only belonged to Woods.

Singh's six PGA Tour victories are three times as many as anyone else. With two months left in the season, he already is a lock to win player of the year. He has a $2.2 million lead on the money list, and with at least five more tournaments to play, is a cinch to win his second straight money title, wrote San Francisco Chronicle.
