Fiji's Vijay Singh shot a final round 67 to win the Funai Classic on Sunday.

The 40-year-old finished at 23-under-par 265, four strokes ahead of Tiger Woods, Scott Verplank and Stewart Cink.

Singh entered the final round tied with Verplank, Cink and Rollins but opened a three-stroke lead over Cink as he took 33 shots on the first nine holes.

World number three Davis Love III and John Rollins tied for fifth at 18-under.

Singh's fourth win of the season moves him to the top of the PGA Tour money list, and he is expected to be second in the new world rankings on Monday.

The Fijian, who has two wins and six top-five finishes in his last 10 starts, earned $720,000 for the victory - he has now made $6,827,507 this season.

"I don't think I've had this kind of performance ever," said Singh.

"It's been going on for a long time - I just hope I don't wake up from this dream.

"I'm playing the best that I can play right now. And it's a good feeling to go out there knowing that you've got a chance of winning the golf tournament every time you tee it up."

World number one Woods is in danger of losing the money title for only the second time in his career.

Woods' absence from next week's event gives the participating Singh a chance to further his advantage.

Then both men will go for the crown at the season-ending Tour Championship next month in Houston.
