Vijay Singh misses cut in first FedEx Cup tourney, continuing to show why he's done
HARRISON, N.Y. - Vijay Singh sat in the Westchester Country Club locker room, staring straight ahead. The 44-year-old Singh who talked before the first FedEx Cup playoffs started about contending for major events until the age of 50 was looking at his new reality.
Singh, No. 2 in the Cup standings only because he plays every single tournament imaginable, didn’t come close to scaring anyone but his travel agent at The Barclays. On this course that’s supposedly made for him - because he won it three times when the tournament didn’t matter and he was still had a majors pulse - Singh missed the cut by four strokes after going 4-over.
He shot an even par 71 this afternoon when he knew he needed much, much lower. He never made a charge, never made anyone think he could.
As I wrote yesterday, Singh is done contending in events that matter. He might win a few Wyndhams or Renos down the road, but he’s no threat to the big players anymore. A few fans who only stare at the money list and not how those figures have been reached and TravelGolf.com’s own village idiot disagreed. But Singh’s stare seemed to show even he is starting to see the reality he does not want to accept.
Vijay had a nice run, better than many thought he’d ever have. Now his career moves into a different stage - the only-challenge-for-little-ones stage.
Vijay in the locker room at Westchester isn’t Willie Mays dropping a ball in the outfield. But for him, it’s just as harsh.

Why didn't you mention his injuries or don't they have any bearing on his game?!!
What a pompous ass you sound like. Vijay is not done, not in the least. Wait and see.
