Vijay Singh posted a career-best 10-under 61 on Sunday to rally from six shots be­hind and win the Charles Schwab Cup Championship.

The win also delivered Bernhard Langer the Charles Schwab Cup ti­tle for the fifth time along with its US $1 million prize.

The 55-year-old Singh finished at 22-under 262, four clear of runner-up Tim Petrovic, who began the final round one shot behind Scott McCarron.

The win was his third of the year and helped him finished at No. 4 in the Schwab Cup and seventh on the money list with US $1,698,952.

“The way they were scoring all week, I thought if I got to 20 (under), I might finish top 5,” said Singh, who missed only one green in regu­lation.

“I birdied the first two, hit it close at 4. I just kept going. I didn’t think about much. I didn’t even know what we were shooting.”

The Fijian golfer earned his first share of the lead after making bird­ie on No. 7. A birdie on No. 14 was his third straight, and it gave him his first solo lead at 20-under.
