Vijay Singh surged on the back 9 and caught up to Kenny Perry on the 18th hole at -12. Singh misjudged the wind and knocked his approach shot in the drink. Perry safely knocked his approach shot onto the green and two putted to win at Bay Hill.
Though Vijay didn’t win, he still regained the #1 world ranking due to Tiger’s mediocre finish.
The battle between Perry and Singh was nearly as entertaining as watching John Daly on 18. John was at even par on 18 (he played the back first) when he knocked his approach shot in the rocks. Instead of taking a drop, he took several whacks at his ball but only managed to catch rock. He scored an 11 on that hole and dropped himself to last place.
