SINGAPORE, Nov 4 (Reuters) Argentine Angel Cabrera held off a charging Vijay Singh to win the Singapore Open today, firing a final round 72 to finish on eight-under for the tournament and a stroke clear of the Fijian.

Singh, who started the day six shots behind Cabrera, shot a final-round 67 and missed out on forcing a playoff when his eagle putt at the last stopped just short.

The Fijian momentarily drew level when he sank his birdie putt but Cabrera held his nerve to register a birdie of his own and walked away with his fourth victory of the season.

''It was a tough day. It was very windy out there but I did enough to win,'' Cabrera said in a greenside interview.

''I knew Vijay was doing well but it was up to me. I knew I would win if I played the closing holes well.

''Hopefully, I will be back next year to defend.'' Australian Adam Scott, who was seeking a hat-trick of titles here, finished third on three-under with American Jin Park a further shot adrift in fourth.

Lee Westwood was the only other player to break par for the tournament, the Briton closing with a disappointing 74 for a one-under total after he had earlier threatened to challenge for the title.
