Vijay Singh left Augusta National in disgust after missing the cut in 1998. His streak of 53 consecutive cuts made was history, and his confidence on the greens was shattered. Singh brought a new attitude in 2000, and he jumped to the front. He was one of eight players who had to complete the third round Sunday morning because of weather, but Singh played his remaining four holes in even par to complete a 2-under 70. Later that day, Singh carded a final-round 69 for a three-shot win over Ernie Els. An assist from Mother Nature was helpful, he said, as he needed only 30 putts in the final round.
