Franco, Singh Ride Course Record To Win at Bass Pro Shops Legends

Carlos Franco and Vijay Singh combined to shoot a course-record 12-under par in Sunday’s final round at Top of the Rock and win the Bass Pro Shops Legends at Big Cedar Lodge.

 
Starting the day seven-shots back of first round leaders, Jeff Sluman and Fred Funk, Franco and Singh finished the (rain-shortened) 36-hole tournament at 15-under – one shot clear of three other teams at 14-under, including Sluman and Funk.

Corey Pavin and Duffy Waldorf, along with Paul Goydos and Kevin Sutherland, were the two other teams to finish at 14-under.
