Vijay Singh played all four rounds at last week's Masters Tournament but will head back to the PGA TOUR Champions tour this week, withdrawing from the RBC Heritage on Monday.
The Fijian flashed up the leaderboard in R1 of the 82nd Masters Tournament, finding himself T16 after day one (1-under 71). He remained inside the top 25 after R2 but a 7-over 79 on Saturday moved him in the wrong direction. It was just the second cut made in six PGA TOUR starts this season. Taking a pass on the Heritage, he will head to the over-50 circuit instead and play in the Mitsubishi Electric Classic. Singh has three top 11s including a win on the PGA TOUR Champions tour.

2000 Masters champion Vijay Singh blew the cobwebs from his recent record at Augusta National Golf Club with a first round 1-under-par 35-36=71, to lie T4 on the live leaderboard, albeit very early in Thursday's action.

The Fijian followed his win at ANGC with eight straight top 20 finishes and yet since 2009 has been a shadow of that relentless golfer. He's made just five cuts in nine starts, with a best of T27 in 2012 and his round one 70 that year left him T10, the nearest he has been to the lead at the end of a completed circuit in all that time. He might - but only might - improve on that this year. He opened with three birdies in four holes; from 6'0" at 1, then 7'0" at 2 and 4. On the front nine he also made early par-breakers, from 36'0" at 11 and 4'0" at 13. Back-to-back bogeys at 6 and 7 marred the front nine, errors at 14 and 18 on the back, the latter due to a failure to get up-and-down from the back of the green.

Vijay Singh has taken a pre-tournament pass on this week's Honda Classic, giving a spot to Keith Mitchell instead.

Singh played back-to-back weeks in California, missing the cut at Pebble Beach and then grabbing a T73 last week at the Genesis Open. Perhaps he's ready for a break before hopping back on the train. There was no injury cited, given the pre-tournament nature of this WD. In his place, Sea Island resident Keith Mitchell will make his debut at The Honda Classic.

Past champion Vijay Singh strung together a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during round two of the RBC Canadian Open, keeping his name near the top of the leaderboard on 10-under 134.

Singh fired out of the gate on Thursday with a stellar ball-striking display. Today, he lost strokes off-the-tee and approaching-the-green, but salvaged his round with some short-game magic. Most notable was a 22-foot hole-out birdie at the par-4 fifth hole. He also sank a long-distance birdie from 32'5" at the par-4 first hole. Singh has been T70 or worse after two rounds in 11 of his last 12 PGA TOUR starts but he did find himself in solo fourth at the midpoint of THE PLAYERS this year, finishing T16 by week's end. The 2004 champ at Glen Abbey Golf Club is certainly enjoying his time at a familiar and comfortable venue.

Vijay Singh maintained a clean card in round one of the RBC Canadian Open, breezing to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 to sit one off the early pacesetters.

The Hall of Famer took advantage of a soft and scoreable Glen Abbey Golf Club. He pelted 16 greens and gave himself nine birdie looks from inside 13 feet. He converted on six of them, while keeping his round glued together with a 12'8" par-saver at the 8th. Singh is just 4-for-16 on the season but rounds like today prove that he's not ready to go full-time on the senior circuit just yet.

Vijay Singh turned back the clocks in round two of THE PLAYERS, penciling a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to reach 6-under 138 after 36 holes, just three strokes off the pacesetters at the top.

Singh arrived this week with seven straight missed cuts on the PGA TOUR but a little home cooking is doing the trick in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Steady striking was the name of the game today as he gained 2.168 strokes approaching-the-green, setting up seven birdie looks from inside 10 feet. Singh only converted on two of those, but he made up for it with two birdie bombs from outside 24 feet in addtion to a 27'8" hole-out birdie at the par-4 12th. At the time of his scorecard signing, Singh ranked 16th in the field for strokes gained putting this week, generally not one of his strengths. Making his 24th appearance at THE PLAYERS, he already owns four top 10s including a runner-up finish back in 2001.

Vijay Singh heads back to TPC Sawgrass this week for his 24th appearance at THE PLAYERS Championship.

The Hall of Famer has plenty of course experience this week, but not much success, at least for his lofty standards. In 23 visits to TPC Sawgrass he's collected four top 10s but never won the event. His closest call was a runner-up finish in the 2001 edition. More recently, he's missed the cut in four of his last six starts here. Even worse for his prospects, he arrives with seven straight missed cuts on the PGA TOUR. The 54-year-old may finally be aging.

Vijay Singh looks to break out of a recent slump as he turns his attention toward Harbour Town Golf Links for this week's RBC Heritage.

The Hall of Famer arrives on the heels of five straight missed cuts. He's found just one top 25 over the last calendar year on the PGA TOUR. On the bright side that came in the form of a runner-up finish at last year's Quicken Loans National. This week at Hilton Head, Singh will be very comfortable with the layout as he's making his 14th appearance at this event. His Heritage track record includes a trio of top 5s, but none since 2001. His last four visits have gone for T66-T51-MC-MC, making him an easy choice for gamers to overlook this week.

Past champ Vijay Singh makes his way back for a 23rd appearance at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

The Hall of Famer is 16-for-22 at this event in his career, including a victory in the 2004 edition. More recently he's 5-for-7 but nothing better than T25 since Monterey Peninsula CC replaced Poppy Hills in the rotation. The 53-year-old showcased his upside is still alive when he finished runner-up at last year's Quicken Loans National. However, he's finished T33 or worse in 10 starts since. Gamers have to factor in his recent form when considering Singh in any format this week.

Life Member and World No. 187 Vijay Singh is 1-for-3 to start 2016-17, cashing a T33 at the no-cut CIMB Classic and following with missed cuts at the Shriners and The RSM Classic.

The Hall of Famer shows little signs of letting up anytime soon, making 22 starts last season on the PGA TOUR, finishing 99th in the FedExCup standings, adding six events on the PGA Tour Champions. On the former, he posted two top 25s, both doubling as top 10s, highlighted by a solo second at the Quicken Loans National, his best finish since solo second at the 2013-14 Frys.com Open. On the latter, the 53-year-old's six starts was the most he's made since becoming eligible in 2013, and equaled his combined total from 2013-15. It remains to be seen if last year's increased starts on the senior circuit is a trend or an anomaly, as Singh continues to make more cuts on the main stage than he misses, and has qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs in each of the last three seasons.

After not qualifying for last year's edition, Life Member and past champ Vijay Singh returns to the Deutsche Bank Championship and arrives at 95th in the FedExCup standings.

The 53-year-old is the leader in career earning at the DBC with $3,266,468, $189,742 ahead of 49-year-old and 2009 winner Steve Stricker. This is his eighth appearance (in the FEC era), with his win in 2008 his only top-10 finish (T11/2010). The Hall of Famer is 14-for-21 on the season with two top 25s doubling as top 10s. His season best is solo second at the Quicken Loans National (six starts ago), chasing with missed cuts at The Open and PGA Championship, and three cashes outside the top 50, including T53 at The Barclays.

Vijay Singh maintained a steady pace during round two of the Travelers Championship, signing for a 2-under-par 33-35=68 to reach the midpoint at 5-under 135.

The 53-year-old splashed in just three putts from outside 4'1" today. Still, a pair of putts from 17-to-19 feet helped him stay on the positive side of the strokes gained putting equation. In fact, he improved 2.692 strokes round-over-round, in that regard. However, he found four fewer greens today which putt more weight on his play around the greens. He survived nicely, trading five birdies with three bogeys on the day. Making his 13th start at TPC River Highlands this week, he will enter the weekend just two off the pacesetters, searching for his third top 10 at the Travelers.

Vijay Singh started strong at this week's Travelers Championship, signing for a 3-under-par 36-31=67 to sit three strokes off the early pacesetters.

The 53-year-old is making his 13th start at TPC River Highlands, with just one missed cut on his record (last year). He took full advantage of that course knowledge, landing 16 greens in regulation despite hitting just eight (of 14) fairways. His lone setback was the flat stick, like it often is. He splashed in just one putt from outside six feet, a 10'8" birdie roll at the par-3 11th. Currently ranked 84th in the FedExCup race, the Hall of Famer is proving that he still belongs on the main stage and is not ready to commit full-time to the PGA TOUR Champions.

Vijay Singh finished inside the top 10 at the 2005 PGA Championship held at Baltusrol Golf Club and returns this week for another crack at the A.W. Tillinghast Design.

Singh finished T10 at the 2005 PGA Championship and hasn't found a top 10 in a PGA Championship in 10 trips since. His closest was a T16 at the 2009 edition (Hazeltine) but all other finishes have been outside the top 30. More recently he's flashed a bit of form with a runner-up finish at the Quicken Loans National last month. The 53-year-old ranks just 97th on TOUR in driving distance now, a metric that fueled much of his success during his prime. Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course stretches out past 7,400 yards, which may be out of Singh's range at this point in his career. The Hall of Famer will need to rely on course management this week if he wants to jump back into contention.

Hall of Famer and Life Member Vijay Singh smoothed a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's final round of the Quicken Loans National to post 14-under 270, up four places to solo second and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Singh finished in solo second, three back of champion and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III.

The 53-year-old, looking to become the oldest winner on TOUR ever, matched the low round of the day (with three others), circling seven birdies against a lone bogey on a failed scramble on the 71st hole. He bounced back with a 6'1" birdie on the 72nd hole for a walk-off 3 and record his best finish at the QLN, supplanting T7 in 2009, and his best lap in the tournament in his 32nd career round. The Big Fijian nets just his second top 10 of the season in 16 starts (T6, Honda), and if the runner-up holds, it'll be his 28th in 584 career events, first since the 2013-14 Frys.com Open. He'll also claim one of the four spots available this week to The Open Championship at Royal Troon, going to the top four finishers inside the top 12 and ties who were not already exempt.
