Vijay Fires 61 and Takes the Lead

Vijay Singh of Fiji started the day in a tie for seventeenth, and finished the day with a strong lead. Singh shot his career low score, 61 in heavy rain from Ernesto and strong wind. His ten under par round would allow him to leapfrog the field, including Tiger Woods who also played a strong round shooting a four under 67. Vijay's round included only a single bogey as his usually inconsistant putting seemed to calm down. Tiger Woods will play with Vijay on Monday, the final day of the Deutsche Bank Championship, at three strokes back. Tiger Woods is looking for his fifth consecutive win at a course and tournament which has never gave him victory. Tiger faced Vijay Singh two years ago where Vijay would beat Tiger head-to-head and capture the number one world ranking from Tiger. Two years later, another showdown will take place as Tiger will try for another straight victory, but this time Tiger is on top. Justin Rose of Great Britain is tied with Tiger at 8 under after surrendering his second round lead. Aaron Baddeley was not able to make a real move shooting 70 as former PGA Champion Shaun Micheel and Ryder Cupper J.J. Henry passed "Badds". As the European Ryder Cup team was finalized this morning when Captain Ian Woosnam named Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood his final two member, the two American team members both are in the top five. J.J. Henry is one of the four Ryder Cup rookies who Tiger took out to dinner last week. Austrailian Robert Allenby, a co-leader from the second round, shot 73 potentially taking him out of contention.
