Vijay Singh beats Jeff Maggert in playoff

Vijay Singh shut out Jeff Maggert on the second playoff hole and won the Constellation Senior Players Championship on Sunday. Singh, who had won the Masters and two PGA Championships, had never won on the PGA Tour Champions before.

''It's a little different,'' he said. ''It's a senior major, you know, so it's - any time you win a tournament no matter what it is, you feel accomplishment, and that's what I feel. I feel like I played well, and it's a win. A win is a win.''

Singh and Maggert finished at 20-under 268 with a 67 and 68, Brandt Jobe came in third at 18-under and Jerry Kelly was tied for fourth place with Scott McCarron at 17 under.

Maggert started the day in a three-way tie with McCarron and Bart Bryant with Singh a shot back but it soon turned into a duel between them.

''I wasn't really watching the scoreboard or Vijay,'' Maggert said. ''Like I said, I thought I needed to shoot 5-, 6-, 7-under today to really kind of ice it. So I was really focused in on making seven or eight birdies today. ... You know, I thought some other scores would come into play there toward the end, but the last two or three groups looked like they were struggling, other than me and Vijay.''

Both scored identically through the first fifteen holes but a bogey for Maggert on 16th and a couple of missed putts on the 18th led to a playoff.

''We played toe-to-toe all day,'' Maggert said. ''He hit a nice shot on 18, and I had a chance to make a few putts throughout the day, but they just didn't go in.''

After dipping in and out of the senior tour over the last few years Sing is playing more consistently on the senior Tour.

''To win the first major on this tour, I'm really excited about that,'' Singh said. ''Winning my first tournament at the beginning of the year was big, and now I've won this one, so I look forward to winning a lot more now. I always say, the first one, you get the first one out of the way, you can win a lot more after that.''
