Generally AP articles don’t make me laugh, but this one sure did.
Vijay Singh, who won the first two events, tied for 44th and earned enough points that all he has to do is complete four rounds at the Tour Championship in two weeks to collect the $10 million payoff.
But the surly Singh didn’t seem terribly grateful.
In a move that took some shine off the tour’s new prize, Singh refused to speak to NBC Sports and walked briskly past a group of other media after finishing his round.
What’s up with Vijay? I failed to catch any of his round, and a quick glance at his scorecard showed a very respectable 69, including a back nine 33. I know his putter was balky all week, but what’s new? So what exactly was eating at the big Fijian?
The AP writer opines:
Singh’s behavior at the end of his round, however, raised questions how much he cares about a trophy that is part of the tour’s so-called “New Era in Golf.”
