Woods' rival?

The birth of Woods' rival has come.

Not just in one tournament, but week in and week out.

It's 43-year-old Vijay Singh.

Despite his age, he has a similar work ethic, energy, charisma and pure talent. as Tiger Woods'.

Singh won only one tournament last year - the Barclays Classic - and if you believed the chatter, he was headed for the Champions Tour seven years too early. But he found his groove in the season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship this past weekend. He beat the field - made up of 2006 PGA Tour winners, minus Tiger and Phil Mickelson - by two strokes over Scott.

Singh's work ethic is crazier than ever. He was no different in preparation for the Mercedes, with two-a-day workouts, sandwiched by a five-hour stint hitting balls. He's always had a work-harder-than-the-other-guy approach.


He is also determined to get his game back on track. He's one of the most disliked guys on tour. And he couldn't care less.

And with Tiger Woods scheduled to become a first-time dad this summer, his priorities might change a bit.

"Life doesn't stop at 40," Singh said after his win at the Mercedes. "It just begins, I guess. It hasn't been easy. You know, once I turned 40, I probably picked up my training and my practice even more. Not so much my practice, but my physical training has been a lot more intense. Two workouts a week for the last month and a half has been pretty hard. Each day you finish that, you come back home, you feel really, really tired.

"But when you finish the whole routine, you feel really good about yourself and that showed this week."

Singh now has 18 wins after turning 40, breaking Sam Snead's previous record.
