Vijay Singh: Practice Makes Perfect

I don't know what to say about Vijay Singh other than AMAZING. I guess it is only appropriate that Vijay means Victory in Hindi.

Let's review Vijay's year
1. Won 8 tournaments including 5 of last 6
2. Earnings of $9,455,566 (new record)
3. Became #1 Player in the World
4. Soon to be player of the year

Obviously Vijay is #1 in scoring and greens in regulation, but numbers I found interesting were Vijay is 145th in driving accuracy and 133rd in putts per round. I did not realize that his driving or putting ranked so poorly. 2004 stats

Vijay Singh hasn't made this much noise since he made the comments about Annika Sorenstam playing at the Colonial. And even now, it's not like he's really making any noise. He just practices, plays and wins. Doesn't say more than a few words, ever.

I wonder if Vijay Singh really did cheat on the Asian Tour. For much of his career Vijay was known as the guy banned from the Asian Tour for turning in a counterfeit scorecard.

If the Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren breakup rumor is true, I think now would be a good time for Vijay to make his move. I hear she only likes golfers that can say they're number one.

They don't call Vijay a P-I-M-P for nothing. You know what they say about those silent ones.

Speaking of silent ones, Vijay is also known for ripping a good one at least a few times per round.

The latest rumor is that Tiger and Elin are going to marry next weekend.

Vijay works very hard on his golf swing, probably as hard as any player on tour. He has bee using a training aid called the Speed Stik for the past two years. I don't know if you could credit all his success to it but he claims to have increased his distance considerably since using it.

You can see him using it HereDoug Marks
