The 2008 FedEx Champion has been battling a knee injury since January. He’s only made 7 of 11 cuts this year and ranked. Despite a slow start, Singh’s been improving in his recent appearances. Singh placed T-9 at The PLAYERS, and last week at the Byron Nelson Championship, he finished T-16, shooting three consecutive rounds in the 60s.
Singh followed his first round score of 6-under-par 64 with yet another 64, today – Bogey-free, no less! He’s currently in 3rd place and a mere two shots off the lead behind Steve Stricker going into the weekend.
What’s his secret been? After yesterday’s round, Singh, a man of few words, said, “Now I got to practice.” No way! There’s a shocker. I’ve never heard him utter those words. Wait, I almost forgot – He likes to practice…a lot. Jokes aside, I have to give him credit for his intense work ethic – I mean, I’ve heard practice makes perfect.
Let’s see if the 46-year-old vet can keep up his stellar play this weekend. It’d be nice to see him secure his first win since last December. With momentum and practice, there’s a strong possibility that may happen (uh-oh, he’s been hit by the notorious Wei jinx).
