Singh shows desire in latest victory
“I think he was out to prove that wasn’t the case,” Davis Love III said.
Singh’s two-shot victory in the season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship, where didn’t make a bogey over the final 29 holes and never let anyone closer than two shots to him over the final 25 holes.
Morning and evening for two weeks on the Big Island, he pounded his body in the gym. During the day, he spent five hours on the practice range hitting some 400 balls, leaving enough time for him to play 18 holes.
“I wanted this win, and I practiced hard for it,” said Singh, who turns 44 next month. “I worked hard and it paid off.”
His work ethic is now legendary in golf circles.
More than sheer work, however, Singh’s legacy might be his desire.
“There’s no trophies for doing it,” he said. “Really, it’s just a record created by who? It’s not even a record. It’s just numbers.”
Singh has a constant battle with his putting, and then his swing started to leave him. But he never lost his desire.
“It’s easy to fall off the top,” he said. “Once you’re sliding down, you’ve got to have something to hold onto. My physical condition probably kept me there. If I wasn’t strong enough, once you mentally get a little frustrated, you can just slide off so quickly. The good news is I’m fresh and I’m really looking forward to the season.
“I’m quite happy with the way I’m feeling right now.”
