Vijay Singh's winning clubs

"I'm very, very uncomfortable with 4- and 5-footers," he admitted after his win Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. But unlike the typical weekend player, there is a lot more than pride on the line when a Tour player stands over an awkward-length putt.

"I was practicing 4- and 5-footers all week last week," Singh, 45, said. "And at the end of the day it pays off. And 17 and 18, it showed up. I told myself, 'Just like home, go ahead and make the stroke.' And it went in."

While he did miss a few relatively short putts, Singh also holed some long ones and felt better about his stroke after going back to a belly putter.

"Right now I'm very comfortable with the putter I have," he said. "I feel like I'm not thinking too much over the ball. I'm just making a stroke." According to Never Compromise, the putter Vijay is using is a Never Compromise GM2 Exchange #7 belly putter.

Singh, who now has more victories on the PGA Tour than any other non-American-born player, confesses that he still brings traditional-length putters with him, but he's hoping he won't go back to one. "If you see me with a short one, that means that something is wrong with me."

Here is a complete list of all the clubs that were in Singh's bag last weekend at Firestone Country Club:

Driver:                   Cleveland HiBore XL (9.5°)
Fairway woods:    Cleveland Launcher Steel Fairway (13°), Adams Idea a3 Boxer (19°)
Irons:                     Cleveland CG1 Black Pearl (4-P)
Wedges:                Cleveland CG12 (54°, 60°, 64°)
Putter:                  Never Compromise GM2 Exchange #7 belly
Ball:                      Titleist Pro V1x
