Vijay Singh will tee it up at this week's RBC Heritage.
Singh has a pair of 3rd place finishes at Harbour Town Golf Links, but they came back in 2000 and 2001. That was when third place finishes were routine for Singh. In theory, the Fijian lacks the short game needed to compete at Harbour Town, ranking 191st in strokes gained-putting and 90th in scrambling. Luckily for Singh, he will get a chance to disprove that theory. Apr 15 - 10:42 AM

Vijay Singh spun a blemish-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Typically success at Bay Hill requires prowess on the par 5s, but only one of Singh's four birdies occurred on the longest holes. His birdies ranged in distance from 13'5" to 1'8" and he split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 13 GIR. Form has been a question of late, as he hasn't cracked a top 40 in any of his seven starts in 2014. He enters the final round at 3-under 213.

Vijay Singh returns to the Valspar Championship where he is a past champion.

Singh started off strong at the Copperhead Course, finishing runner-up his first time in 2003 before returning to win the next season. He hasn't cracked a top 15 in six subsequent trips, and his recent form isn't much to get excited about either. He hasn't cracked the top 40 in 2014.

Vijay Singh is set for his 10th start in the Farmers Insurance Open.

While he's never enjoyed a top-10 finish at Torrey Pines, he has only missed the cut one time and owns five top-25 finishes. He's made two of four cuts in 2013-14, and has already almost doubled his 2013 cash total of $309,351. He missed the cut at the Sony Open in his only action in calendar year 2014.

Vijay Singh only earned $309,351 on the 2013 PGA TOUR, failing to make the FedExCup Playoffs, but as a lifetime member it really didn't matter in terms of his 2013-14 status.

The real story is what went on off the course with Singh. Unless you were hiding under a rock, you now know something about deer antler spray that you didn't before. You also probably know that he is involved in a lawsuit with the PGA TOUR. Savvy gamers have known for some time that what goes on off the course with golfers often carries relevance inside the ropes as well. The typical problem is the lack of knowledge of issues as they are happening. The Fijian's profile and the public nature of his lawsuit allows us insight we aren't normally afforded. Despite the runner-up at the Frys.com Open, he's 50 years old, coming off the roughest season on the course most fans can remember and has a major legal battle on his hands. That's not a pleasant recipe in fantasy land.

Vijay Singh shot out of the gates in 2013-14, posting a runner-up finish at the Frys.com Open at 15-under-par 269 due in part to his final-round 3-under-par 34-34=68.

Without a win since 2008, Singh gave himself a legitimate chance at CordeValle Golf Club. He circled five birdies and squared two bogeys, but it wasn't enough to run down Jimmy Walker. The Fijian led the tournament in GIR, landing 61 for the week and 15 in the final round. While the putter normally cripples him, he finished 34th this week and in the middle of the pack. That goes to show what an average week with the flat stick could still mean for the veteran.

Vijay Singh is off to a strong start in 2013-14, with a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the Frys.com Open improving him to 12-under 201 and one off the clubhouse lead.

Singh has dipped his toe onto the Champions Tour, but remains committed to the PGA TOUR for now. After an opening bogey, he went on to rattle off five birdies and an eagle at the par-4 17th. He's one of many players to land 16 GIR on the afternoon. Should he figure out a way to win at CordeValle Golf Club on Sunday, it would be his first since a three-win 2008 campaign.

Vijay Singh is 6-under-par 69-67=136 through 36 holes of the Frys.com Open, five strokes off the overnight lead.

Since failing to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs, Singh made his debut on the Champions Tour where he finished T6 at the Pacific Links Hawai'i Championship. Now fully exempt on the PGA TOUR as a Life Member, he's started with a bang at CordeValle. After hitting 13 greens in regulation on Thursday, he landed 17 today and circled five birdies, the longest of which measuring just 13'5" at the 17th hole. Alas, he couldn't come in blemish-free due to a three-putt bogey from 37'7" at the par-4 eighth; he whiffed on the par save from 39 inches. Singh doesn't carry anywhere the kind of fantasy value that once made him a top selection in most long-term formats and for many weeks during the season, but he could be the source of cheap dollars and FedExCup points because he like to stay busy.

Vijay Singh opened the Pacific Links Hawai'i Championship with a 3-under-par 33-36=69.

The 50-year-old Fijian is making his debut on the Champions Tour this week. He hasn't played since the Wyndham Championship and finished 146th in FedExCup points. Singh hit 15 greens at Kapolei Golf Club today and erased one bogey with four birdies, three of which on the set of four par 5s. He's fully exempt as a Life Member on the PGA TOUR until he fails to meet the minimum requirements to sustain that eligibility. That said, consider him best used as a flier for salary formats assuming he comes with a price tag of $309K.

Vijay Singh began his third round of the RBC Canadian Open on fire before eventually signing for a 6-under-par 29-37=66 and reaching the clubhouse at 8-under 208.

Singh started his day birdie-eagle-birdie at Glen Abbey and was soaring up the leaderboard. He then added birdies at seven, eight, 10 and 13 before a double bogey at the par-3 15th and a messy bogey at the par-5 16th knocked him off track. He rebounded to birdie the par-5 18th after a cozy pitch. The putter was the key, picking up over two strokes on the field at the time of his posting. Entering the week 143rd in the FedExCup standings, he has work to do if he wants a tee time at The Barclays.

Vijay Singh carded a 1-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the AT&T National to reach the clubhouse one stroke off the early lead.

This is the first time since the Arnold Palmer Invitational (1-under 71) that the 50-year-old has signed for a red number after a first round. Overall, he's finished no better than T20 (Sony Open) all season but still ranks 131st in FedExCup points on the strength of nine paydays. Today at Congressional he hit 12 greens and buried four birdies against three bogeys. His longest par breaker measured just 10'6" at the par-4 eighth hole, his penultimate of the round.

Vijay Singh heads to the Travelers Championship in the midst of a huge slump.

The Fijian looked in good form when he shared 38th at the Masters, but since then things have not gone well. Since then, he's missed four of five cuts with a T80 at the Byron Nelson thrown in for good measure. Given the timing of his slump, one can't help but wonder if the deer antler spray controversy and ensuing legal angels he's chosen to explore are taking their toll on his game.

Vijay Singh signed for a 2-over-par 39-35=74 following his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

While Singh made news for his lawsuit against the PGA TOUR this week, he's still a golfer coming off a back injury that reportedly prevented him from competing at Quail Hollow last week. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation but fanned on four putts inside eight feet and circled only three birdies. The set included a crowd-pleaser at the par-3 17th from 15'4".

USATODAY.com is reporting that Vijay Singh has filed suit against the PGA TOUR, claiming that the organization violated "its duty of care and good faith" concerning the golfer's usage of a once-banned substance.

While the TOUR dropped its case against Singh last week, you saw this latest action coming. "The PGA Tour has now finally admitted that the use of deer antler spray is not prohibited," the suit claims. "Rather than performing its duties to golfers first, and then determining whether there had been any violation of the Anti-Doping Program, the PGA Tour rushed to judgment and accused one of the world's hardest working and most dedicated golfers of violating the rules of the game." In a statement, Singh added, "I am proud of my achievements, my work ethic, and the way I live my life. The PGA Tour not only treated me unfairly, but displayed a lack of professionalism that should concern every professional golfer and fan of the game." The lawsuit won't prevent Singh from competing on the PGA or Champions Tours. He's scheduled to go off the first tee at 2:00 p.m. ET for his opening round of THE PLAYERS on Thursday.

Vijay Singh has been removed from the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship, citing a back injury, per PGA TOUR Media on Twitter.

Singh has popped in and out of fields all season. His last early WD occurred in Houston due to a knee injury. As we relayed to you on Tuesday, he was able to continue competing during the appeal process to PGA TOUR's sanction after his confirmation that he used IGF-1. However, remove that entire saga and you still a 50-year-old touring professional who has beaten his body pretty good over the years. Look for him to give it a go at next week's PLAYERS, an event where his best finish is a runner-up to Tiger Woods' "Better Than Most" victory of 2001. It will be a home game for the Fijian.
