ORLANDO, Fla. -- Kenny Perry made a clutch par on the 72nd hole Sunday and won the 2005 Bay Hill Invitational presented by MasterCard when Vijay Singh, tied for the lead with Perry at 12 under par heading to the last tee, hit his second shot into the pond fronting the 18th green and made a double bogey.
