In virtually clinching $10 million grand prize for FedEx Cup, Vijay Singh shows less practice equals more wins
That wrap Vijay Singh wears on his left arm isn’t for show. The 45-year-old Fijian is battling tendinitis even as he racks up wins - three in five weeks now after he blew away the rest of the field in the Deutsche Bank this holiday weekend.
The ailment’s actually made Singh cut back on his usual endless hours on the practice range.
It turns out the forced break is very good for Singh’s game and bank account - he’s all but clinched the second FedEx Cup and the $9 million in cash that goes with it this year (someone else would have to win twice in the final two events while Vijay kept finishing close to last to have a real chance of changing the script). This is one of the few cases in sports where less practice actually means better results.
It makes you wonder just how great Vijay Singh could have been if he hadn’t beat himself up by hitting balls till after the sun went down - after having finished his round in tournament after tournament year after year. Then again, he wouldn’t be Vijay without this range obsession.
At least, you know that guys like Adam Scott will never have this problem.

stupid thing up, giving the PGA Tour the
embarrasment so richly deserved for their
crimes against golf.
Sergio would have to at worst - at worst - win and finish second in the final two FedEx Cup events and Vijay would have to finish close to last in both to even give Garcia a possibility under the points system.
If you're going to try and sneak in a GoDaddy.com link with that fake reviews blog thing, at least work in some golf knowledge, Beck. Or read the post.
