In 2004, Vijay Singh was absolutely insane.
In-freaking-sane. The guy won nine times on the PGA Tour. He was 138-under par in those tournaments. The guy made golf look so simple even Tiger Woods seemed worried.
That was then, this is now. Singh hasn't won since September of 2008. He has dropped to 35th in the world. He just doesn't seem to be the same guy as he used to be.
The only guy that doesn't believe that? Vijay Singh.
This week at the Honda Classic, Singh is in the hunt, 7-under par after two days and a shot back of Anthony Kim and Camilo Villegas, the leaders. Vijay pointed out early this week that although he is 47, he can still play, and yep, he's way better than Kenny Perry.
Kenny Perry had a great season last year and he's almost 50, 49 and I'm a lot healthier and fitter than Kenny Perry, so I think I can go a long ways.
Yep. That's Vijay being Vijay. He might not hit a lot of fairways (131st last year) or knock in a whole lot of putts (164th in '09) but the guy knows he has talent that is really undefinable.
This week, Singh could break through. If he does, he'd be the first big name to do so since the Woods fiasco. With his resume at Augusta National, a healthy Singh is a scary thing. He thinks that, the only question is, does the rest of the PGA Tour?
