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.
Aug 4 - 7:10 PM

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.

Hall of Famer Vijay Singh bobbed and weaved to an even-par 37-34=71 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to post 8-under 205, down three places into a two-way T6, a distant seven in arrears to 54-hole leader Billy Hurley III.

The 53-year-old began the third frame in solo third on 8-under, three shy of overnight co-leaders Hurley III and Jon Rahm. He broke even with five birdies against five bogeys on just five (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. After posting positive numbers with the flat stick over the first two rounds, the Big Fijian suffered through a -2.071 in R3. To be fair, he's trying to become the oldest winner on TOUR ever (Sam Snead was 52 when he won the 1965 Wyndham). Despite the dropped shots, he did manage memorable non-conventional birdies on Nos. 11 and 18, each from between 50 and 54 feet from off the green, including the latter using the flat stick for a walk-off 3.
Jun 25 - 7:12 PM

Hall of Famer Vijay Singh bombarded the back nine of Congressional Country Club en route to a 5-under-par 35-31=66 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader at 8-under 134.

The 53-year-old is not known for his work with the putter (121st in strokes gained putting) but he got the flat stick working today. He rolled in seven putts from outside six feet, including five from outside 10 feet. The longest was a 15'8" birdie splash at the par-4 fifth hole and he walked off the course gaining 2.912 strokes with the putter today. From holes No. 5 through 17, Singh played his ball at 8-under (eight birdies, five pars) but ended on a sour note by finding water at the par-4 18th, swallowing a bogey to wrap up the day. The Life Member has just one top 25 on the season, a T6 at the Honda Classic, but if his putter stays hot over the weekend we could see another one this week.

Former champ and Life Member Vijay Singh returns to this week's Shell Houston Open after a seven-year recess from the tournament.

Though at a previous venue, the three-time winner is the only player to successfully defend a Shell Houston Open title (2004-2005), and also tied the tournament record with a winning aggregate of 26-under 266 in 2002 (TPC Woodlands). He WD prior to the 2010 edition and missed the cut in 2009 in his last of 13 appearances. The 53-year-old Hall of Famer posted a T6 at The Honda Classic three starts ago for his first top 10 in nearly a year (2015/Valspar) and chased with T64 and a missed cut (by two) at the Arnold Palmer Invitational after rounds of 71-75.

Hall of Famer Vijay Singh orchestrated an even-par 33-37=70 in the final round of The Honda Classic to post 3-under 277, good for a two-way T6 and his first top 10 on TOUR in nearly a year.

The Life Member's last top-10 finish was T10 in March of last year at the Valspar and his T6 at PGA Nat'l is his best since solo second at the 2013-14 Frys.com. He began his final frame in a three-way T6 and stayed there with a four-birdie one-double two-bogey finale. The Big Fijian won the 1999 edition (TPC Heron Bay) and posts his sixth top 10 at the Honda in his 13th overall appearance on rounds of 69-70-68-70. For the week, Singh finished T2 in driving accuracy at 76.79 percent (43/56) and ranked ninth in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but was T66 in putts per GIR. Not bad for the elder statesman in the field at 53 years of age.

Life Member Vijay Singh bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in today's third round of The Honda Classic to post 3-under 207, up eight spots on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 53-year-old celebrated his birthday on Feb. 22nd and is the elder statesman in the field. He's the 1999 Honda champ (TPC Heron Bay), twice runner-up -- also at previous venues -- and overall is making his 13th appearance. The Big Fijian, who opened in 69-70 (T14), was bogey-free 5-under thru his first 14 holes on Saturday, but played his final four holes in birdie-less 3-over squaring bogey on 17 (failed sand save) and a four-putt double bogey-5 at the 13th (from 19'7"). He split 10 (of 14) fairways but mustered but 10 greens in regulation.
Feb 27 - 5:24 PM

Vijay Singh steadied an even-par 35-35=70 in the second round of the Honda Classic, reaching 1-under 139 through 36 holes.

The Fijian is making his 13th appearance at this event and is looking for his first top 50 since the 2010 edition. He's well on his way through two rounds, thanks to 22 (of 28) fairways hit and 27 greens in regulation. Both rank T4 in the field, at the moment. The wildcard for Singh is always the flat stick, and it let him down today. It started early with a three-jack on the par-4 first hole. He rolled in just two putts from outside five feet today, losing 1.388 strokes:putting by day's end. The putter will remain a question mark over the weekend, but it's something to keep an eye on.
Feb 26 - 5:20 PM

Overnight co-leader Vijay Singh settled for a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 36-hole tally of 8-under 132, down seven places on the live leaderboard to T8.

The 52-year-old shared the 18-hole lead with four others after a bogey-free 63 in round one. He limped out of the gate with three bogeys over his first six holes, including two failed up-and-downs and a three-putt bogey at the fifth from sixty feet, one inch. The Hall of Famer struck back with birdie from 22'4" at the par-3 seventh and a 14-footer for eagle at the par-5 ninth. He added circles at 10 and 12 from inside nine feet, before an inexplicable three-putt bogey-6 at the last from 24'10", including missing his par putt from 30 inches.
Jan 15 - 9:43 PM

Vijay Singh smoothed his way to bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 to start off his week at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

The Fijian took a very unique approach, missing nine (of 14) fairways on the day. With an average driving distance of 317.2 yards he was able to pull short irons and play just fine out of the thick stuff. It helps that his usually-poor putting stroke did a complete one-eighty today as he gained 3.435 strokes with the putter at the time he signed his scorecard. Look for Singh to regress throughout the week, but this round certainly gives gamers a nice boost.
Jan 14 - 5:36 PM

Life Member Vijay Singh made two starts in the fall portion of the wraparound schedule with a T44 at The RSM Classic chasing a missed cut by two at the Shriners.

The Hall of Famer pumped out 23 starts last season (16 made cuts) with four top 25s and one top 10 (T10, Valspar), good for 119th in the FedExCup standings. He has two top 10s over his last 70 starts on TOUR so big-money finishes for the 52-year-old are rightfully scarce. The 34-time TOUR winner's last title came in 2008. He's playing his 24th season on TOUR and turns 53 on February 22nd.

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.
