Ace Furyk seals Canadian Open win
Jim Furyk
Furyk won his first title of the year

FINAL ROUND LEADERBOARD:
(US unless stated)
-16 J Furyk
-15 V Singh (Fij)
-13 R Palmer, G McNeill

Jim Furyk fired a hole-in-one in the final round as he edged out Vijay Singh to retain his Canadian Open title.

Furyk fired six birdies and an eagle in a round of 64, and a bogey at the last was not enough to deny him victory.

The world number two had already birdied two of the first three holes when his tee shot on the par-three 209-yard 4th finished in the hole.

His winning total of 16 under was one ahead of Singh, with Ryan Palmer and George McNeill two shots further back.

England's Brian Davis finished tied for 27th on seven under.

Singh was the overnight leader and had a chance to force a play-off with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th but could only make par.

Furyk was a relieved man after his last-hole bogey almost cost him dearly. "Obviously 18 was a little bit of a slip-up," said Furyk.

"I'm glad it didn't cost me, and I would have loved to have closed the door there knowing I was going to win the tournament.

"But it didn't cost me and it feels good to get a victory."

Singh was left to rue his missed opportunity, but admitted Furyk was a deserving winner.

"I had my chances, but I couldn't get it going on the front nine," Singh said.

"I had a chance on the last, but Jim played well. Anyone who shoots seven-under on the last day is deserving."
