NEW YORK - Tom Watson had given senior players a "second life" with his inspirational British Open campaign, Vijay Singh said yesterday.

He added that the 59-year-old's performance at Turnberry, where he lost in a playoff to fellow American Stewart Cink, meant the Fijian had reassessed how much longer he himself could compete at the highest level.

"Tom Watson, what a great story that is. That gave a second life to everybody, even in their 50s," Singh, 46, said in a conference call to promote next month's tournament at Liberty National, which kicks off the FedExCup playoff series. - Reuters
