For the first time since August 16, 1992, Vijay Singh is not in the top 50 in the OWGR.

Father time may be catching up to him, but oh my goodness, what a run he had, eh?

Gives a lot of us 40+ hackers something to shoot for (relative to where we were in our 20s and 30s).

I really like Vijay, humble and friendly guy - and good!

I hope he has some sort of comeback, maybe not back into the top 10, but another win or two would be nice.

wow, it only seems like 2 minutes ago that he was #1

Just what I was thinking... it seems like just a couple years ago he won 9 events in one year. When I looked it up, I was surprised to see that was 6 years ago! Then I realized he was tops on the money list in 2008. What a difference a couple years make. I hope he can turn it around.

I have to agree that father time is catching up to him especially with the amount of practice and tourney's he plays. Lucky for him the champions tour isn't far off and I'm sure he will succeed there.

    • Im not actually trying to apply those changes..but bumping my hip forward for all full swings makes it hard to feel correct in not bumping it or moving it back for the chip.  It's like I then have a hard time feeling 55 percent of my weight on my front foot.. I'll obviously get it corrected I just didn't expect my chipping setup to feel so alien so quickly.
    • Reading your comments I ask myself if you have played competitive sports in any fashion. If it bothers you enough you either need thicker skin, or maybe stop playing in tournaments. Of all the things in the world golf is the least effected by outside influences. Its you, your ball, your swing, your thoughts that determine the score on the card. Shake it off the guy might just be a jerk but what he is doing isnt against the rules.  As others have said, If you want a confidence boost, when he says something about hitting over a lake or whatever, you nut the shot and hit it how you envisioned. Thats enough of a statement right there. If you let him get in your head he wont stop. If you keep playing good golf and dont react mentally or physically to what he is saying it will get old and he will stop.
    • I bought that same cart last year from Costco for $1500. I like that I can control it from 20-30yds away so it can get to my ball before I do, or it can start moving to the next hole while I am getting off the green. What I didn’t like is if I want to walk under the umbrella - I cannot find the right speed. It’s either too slow or too fast for my pace to walk alongside it. I also think the uphill balancing wheel is too small and if I forgot to extend it, the cart will tip over since my course is at the foothills and there are lots of slopes to climb. A few weeks after buying it, the price went down to $1200. Costco was nice enough to give me the difference eventhough they didn’t have to. I have only used it for a few months - I ended up getting a golf cart because I didn’t want to walk anymore. Then a few months later I joined a different club that included carts in my membership, so I now have an electric push cart and a golf cart sitting in my garage collecting dust...
    • My mother's son remembers polio.  😉 I remember the scare, and a friend of mine wearing those metal leg braces.  He turned out OK, and I played basketball against him in high school. We didn't have "vents", but we had "Iron Lungs." In 1952, the number of polio cases in the U.S. peaked at 57,879, resulting in 3,145 deaths.   The deadly polio epidemic and why it matters for coronavirus Polio was nearly eradicated with the Salk vaccine in 1955. At the time, little was known about this mysterious disease that paralyzed and sometimes killed young children.   Actually 1 American died every 33 seconds yesterday. https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/02/health/us-coronavirus-wednesday/index.html
    • this is first few lines of my 2020 goals; can't seem to do it properly (I didn't see any little plus sign but I did copy and paste)  My goals are to improve score through more time on the course.  I hope to play more and different local courses, and this will mean either solo or pick up some partners from the past.  I've been trying to hook up with these good ole friends from last century and only been able to a couple times. 2020 goals were to spend more time on the course.  I feel that will bring down my score avg and increase enjoyment.  My playing partner (that brought me back to the game) cannot play as much as I need so I started playing at least one round a week by myself to get on-course practice.  After a while, that gets a little old but still good for my game; I might hit a shot twice, mostly second shots.  I also finally hooked up with golf buddies from way past and now play on several of the really nice courses with old friends. This added time on course has improved my scores (and additionally added new specialized type clubs).  But last week, I was brought back down to earth as I actually could not finish a round (thru 12) due to my back problems returning; I had been getting 'uncomfortable' for a little while but denied the golf connection.  So I have been resting the last 2 weeks and now am pain-free again which tells me it's not the light work I have taken up but the golf.   Seems I may have to be satisfied with certain limitations and re-set some goals but I'm not quitting; it has been such a pleasure getting out on a golf course like I do.  I really appreciate it nowaday and enjoy the whole picture.  My home course is in very much isolation from the world and sometime, I never cross another group, no houses, total quiet... (so different from some of the stories I've seen here) I am still searching for a new used set of irons - with graphite shafts and other changes in club set-up designed to keep us ole farts in the game.  Arthritis is a b*tch.
