Singh Cashes In At Deutsche Bank.

Deutsche Bank Championship - Final Round
When was the last time he lived in Fiji? There must be some sort of common law, based on the amount of time he's lived here, that would allow him American citizenship, at least for one Ryder Cup.

Singh shot a blistering 63 and finished the tourney at -22 to threaten throwing the FedExCup, regardless of the new points system, into a done deal. The Deutsche Bank Championship was his in a walk. He's won three out of the last five including last week's Barclays. He literally destroyed the field with birdie putts of 35, 60, and 35 feet on the back nine. Nothing but net. Depending on how everyone finishes at this week's BMW Championship Singh could wrap up the FedExCup title before the season ending THE TOUR Championship. If that happens, look for the suits to reevaluate again to cut the abnormalities from the playoff scoring system.

Mike Weir settled with a final round 71 to finish 5 back at -17. Ernie Els, 70, Camilo Villegas, 72, tied for 3rd at -14. Sergio Garcia slumped to a 72, -13 to tie with Tim Herron. Herron's superb 65 today jumped him from 99th spot in the FedExCup standings to 48th, allowing him to continue playing.

If Vijay plays well enough this week, the Ryder Cup will be the only show in town. A great one yes, but a reminder that golf season, for another year, is on the wane.

Til' next,
