Hall of Famer Vijay Singh makes his second start of his 24th season on the PGA TOUR with his fourth appearance in The RSM Classic.
At 52 years of age, Singh is only second-oldest in the 156-man field this week. That honor would go to 59-year-old Fred Funk. He does join-up with 51-year-old tournament host Davis Love III and newly-minted 50-year-old Glen Day, who cracked the field as an alternate. This will be Singh's fourth tour of Sea Island Resort’s Seaside Course, going 1-for-3 and cashing a T27 in 2012. He joins the rest of the field in strolling the par-72 Plantation Course for one round, the first time the tourney has had a two-course format. Nov 18 - 5:35 PM

Hall of Famer Vijay Singh kicks off his 24th season on the PGA TOUR this week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

At 52 years of age, Singh is the oldest player in the tourney this week, joining 51-year-old Davis Love III as the only studs north of 50 in the 144-man field. Surely the big Fijian remembers that DL3 won the Wyndham last season at 51 years, 4 months and 10 days old, becoming the third-oldest to win on TOUR (Sam Snead is the oldest at 52-10-8). When the tourney begins on Thursday, Singh will check in at 52-8-0. He's played in each of the past three Shriners posting T49-T23-T36 and enters this year's edition off a T3 last week at the Fiji International, five adrift of the American winner Matt Kuchar.

Past Barclays and FedExCup champ Vijay Singh preps for his eighth playing of The Barclays and enters the Playoffs No. 118 in the FedExCup standings.

Singh won the 2008 edition in a playoff at Ridgewood CC in Paramus, New Jersey, en route to winning the whole shebang that year, taking the title the following week at the Deutsche Bank as well. The Hall of Famer also finished third in the 2011 Barclays at Plainfield, shortened to 54 holes due to Hurricane Irene. In total, he's 4-for-7 in the tournament (as part of the FEC Playoffs format) with the aforementioned his only cashes inside the top 40. Singh entered last week's Wyndham Championship 118th in the FEC standings and left No. 118 posting a T31 (66-70-69-66). Will the 52-year-old be inspired by Davis Love III's exploits, winning at 51 years of age last week at Sedgefield? As mentioned above, and similar to DL3, Singh's last victory on TOUR (of 34) came in 2008. He's qualified for every Playoffs (except 2013) and has progressed to the TOUR Championship three times, but not since 2011.

Vijay Singh signed the winning scorecard at the 2004 PGA Championship and returns this week for another look at Whistling Straits.

The Fijian still flashes some upside from time-to-time, owner of four top 25s in 20 starts this season. While eligible due to age, he hasn't made the full transition to the Champions Tour, and can you really blame him? He still averages 289.8 yards off the tee and is 13-for-20 on the PGA TOUR. Gamers can take a low-risk selection on the veteran, but should temper expectations.

Vijay Singh returns to the John Deere Classic after a 10-year recess from the tournament and enters the week 123rd in the FedExCup standings.

Singh has a brief, yet enviable record at TPC Deere Run. He's only played the Deere twice, winning in his 2003 debut and following with a T4 in 2004. It's an interesting start on the calendar for the 52-year-old and an interesting story-line. The PGA TOUR veteran is 11-for-17 on the season with three top 25s, highlighted by a T10 at the Valspar Championship, his first top 10 on TOUR since the 2013 Open. Singh has won 34 times on TOUR (562 career starts), the last coming in 2008 when he won the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, The Barclays and the Deutsche Bank Championship. The big Fijian also claimed the FedExCup title that year.
Jul 8 - 11:26 AM

Vijay Singh crafted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 to conclude his 18th Memorial at 10-under 278, currently T11 with play still in progress.

Singh peppered 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to a five birdie against two bogey loop around Muirfield Village. The 1997 Memorial champion posted four under-par rounds (71-67-71-69) for just the second time this season, and first time since he accomplished that task at the AT&T Pebble Beach back in February. Singh's split included a birdie roll that disappeared into the cup from 21'10" on the par-4 13th and 12'6" on the par-5 seventh. The 52-year-old is right on the border of recording his second top 10 (on 15 starts), having posted a T10 at the Valspar Championship.
Jun 7 - 4:48 PM

Vijay Singh is 5-under-par 69-66=135 through two rounds of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, five strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Singh hasn't won on the PGA TOUR since 2008, but the 52-year-old is playing like he's poised to end the drought. He's missed only nine (of 28) fairways and 10 greens in regulation at Colonial thus far. Today, he covered a bogey-4 at the fourth hole with five birdies, two of which ranging from 11-16 feet. The Hall of Famer has been content with competing against the younger talent. Despite his eligibility for the Champions Tour, he's made only four starts on that circuit. His slate features three top 10s and a T12.
May 22 - 6:04 PM

Vijay Singh turns his attention to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and enters the week slotted 140th in the FedExCup standings.

The 52-year-old continues to thumb his nose at the Champions Tour with all 12 of his starts this season coming on the PGA TOUR. Overall, he's still competing fairly well on the younger circuit going 8-for-12 with two top 25s, the last coming in the form of a T10 at the Valspar Championship. The Big Fijian is 4-for-6 Colonial Country Club peaking in his debut in 2009 at T6. He hasn't busted the top 30 in his next five editions, including a T70 last year.
May 20 - 8:51 AM

Vijay Singh has elected not to compete in this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Big Fijian has quietly strung together four paydays sparked by a T10 at Copperhead. He's 127th in the FedExCup standings, so it's an interesting decision to sit out an event with a relatively thin field. He's also a former winner in New Orleans, but over at English Turn in 2004. TPC Louisiana made its debut in 2005 and has been the permanent site of the tournament since 2007.
Apr 20 - 11:04 AM

Vijay Singh closed out the 79th Masters with a 1-under-par 37-34=71 to post 7-over-par 295.

This marked the 22nd appearance for Singh in the season's first major. While he's 52 years of age, he didn't compete in his first until he was 31 in 1994. He won the green jacket in 2000 and connected top 10s from 2002-2006, but has now gone seven consecutive without a top 25. Saturday's 79 thwarted the likelihood of that drought ending. He arrived in Augusta, Georgia, slotted 134th in the FedExCup standings. The Big Fijian will now take his talents to Harbour Town Golf Links for this week's RBC Heritage where he missed the cut the last two years, his only two starts in the last 13 editions of the tournament.
Apr 12 - 2:02 PM

Vijay Singh concluded the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 3-under-par 37-32=69 to finish his week at 2-under 286.

Coming into the week, Singh had been defying his age, sandwiching a missed cut at Honda with a T10 at last week's Valspar Championship and a T12 at the Northern Trust. Considering his recent form and that he was 20-of-21 in cuts made at Bay Hill, including a victory in 2007, Singh was carrying some mojo. After opening 2-under through his first 36 holes, he ballooned to a 4-over 76 in the third round, dashing any hopes of contending for a second title. His final round wasn't showing much promise, either. He went out in 1-over 37, but he closed like a champion with a bogey-free, 4-under 32 on the back, circling birdies on holes 10, 14, 16 and 17. At last check, The Big Fijian sat 58th on the leaderboard.
Mar 22 - 2:07 PM

Vijay Singh treaded water with an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to end his week at 4-under 280.

Singh was trending for a much better round, as he was 2-under through 14 holes, but the Copperhead Course showed her fangs late. Of his four birdies, the 19'3" effort on the par-3 13th was the highlight. This goes to show that the 52-year-old can still be competitive on the right layout.
Mar 15 - 5:04 PM

Vijay Singh turned in a 1-under-par 35-35=70 for his troubles in the third round of the Valspar Championship.

Singh enters the final round at 4-under 209 and safely inside the top 10. His round featured just two birdies and a lone birdie, with a 10'5" birdie on the par-4 sixth hole the closest thing to a highlight in his round. The Copperhead Course has played difficult all week, so another red figure in the finale would give him a chance to win.
Mar 14 - 4:46 PM

Vijay Singh arrived at the halfway point of the Valspar Championship in 3-under-par 69-70=139 and sits three strokes off the 36-hole lead.

The Big Fijian celebrated his 52nd birthday on Feb. 22 with a T12 at the Northern Trust Open. It was his first top 25 in 19 starts on the PGA TOUR. He's poised for another at Copperhead where he circled nine birdies again six bogeys. The highlight of today's set of four par breakers disappeared from 13'10" at the par-4 18th hole, his ninth of the day.
Mar 13 - 7:10 PM

Vijay Singh spun a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open and is 4-under 209 with 18 to play.

Singh will turn 52 years old on Sunday, and stealing a win would certainly be the best possible present. He is one off the clubhouse lead. His third lap around Riviera Country Club featured five birdies and two bogeys to go with 11 pars. All of his birdies fell from inside of 11 feet. Ball-striking has been a key, ranking inside the top 10 in strokes gained: tee-to-green for the week.
