MARKHAM, Ontario – Jim Furyk successfully defended his Canadian Open title when Vijay Singh missed a 20-foot birdie putt on the final hole.
The 209-yard, par-3 fourth was just as important in the outcome.
Furyk took the lead there Sunday with a hole-in-one and played it in 5-under par for the week, while Singh bogeyed it and was 3 over in four rounds.
Furyk, the winner last year at traditional Hamilton Golf and Country Club, finished with a 7-under 64 for a one-stroke victory.
He had a 16-under 268 total on Angus Glen’s links-style North Course.

GULLANE, Scotland – Tom Watson survived a double bogey at the last hole Sunday to win his third Senior British Open in five years.

He finished one ahead of O’Meara (72) and Ginn (75).
