Vijay in joint lead

other Updated: Aug 12, 2012 01:54 IST

Something of a forgotten man over the last three years, Vijay Singh served notice that he can still contend for major titles with a superb display in tough conditions at the PGA Championship on Friday.

As winds gusted up to 30 miles an hour on the challenging Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, the Fijian former world number one ground out a three-under-par 69, the best score of the day, in the year's final Major.

Seeking his first victory on the PGA Tour since the 2008 Deutsche Bank Championship, having battled assorted healthproblems, Singh was patience personified as he mixed five birdies with two bogeys.

“After a while you don’t really think about your score,” Singh said after ending a gruelling day in a tie for the lead at four-under 140 with Tiger Woods (71) and Carl Pettersson.
