Vijay Singh Withdraws From Korn-Ferry Event:
Seems that Hall of Famer Vijay Singh has changed his mind.
The 57-year-old Veej was signed up to play in the Korn Ferry Tour event that starts next week at the Dye Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass.
When the 34-time winner announced that, social media lit up and he took some heat for it.
Now Singh has quietly changed his mind and won’t play in the event next Thursday.
Singh was eligible to play. The PGA Tour allows a lifetime member (players with 20 or more wins) to enter any Korn Ferry event if that player is not eligible for that week’s PGA Tour event.
The PGA Tour has confirmed the withdrawal but Singh has yet to say anything.
