Humble, TX, Apr. 24 (UPI) -- Vijay Singh parred the first playoff hole Sunday to defeat John Daly and become the first repeat winner of the Shell Houston Open.
Singh, who earlier in the week was elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame, shot a closing-round 70 to tie Daly at 13-under-par 275. Daly had a final-round 67.
In the playoff, pulled his drive into the water left of the fairway and went over the green on his approach shot. Singh's third shot left him with a two-foot putt.
"It was a tough day for me," Singh said. "Fortunately, nobody came out of the pack except for John."
Jose Maria Olazabal, who lost in a playoff three weeks ago at the BellSouth Classic, had a final-round 70 to finish third at 11-under 277.
Darren Clarke, who tied for second last week at the MCI Heritage, shot 67 to share fourth with Greg Owen at 278.
