Default Should Vijay Singh have won more majors??

This guy is so good has arguable improved every year. Works hard. Should he have a better major record.

I really don't like his form but think he is a factor at the British Open. He took second last year and he has played great. However, he is entered in the John Deere this week and then flys over to the British Open. He has done this before, in fact I think he won the Deer last year.

Vijay, is a star player who plays every week. He is not the most personable player on tour but I like him for his work ethic.

Not ready to say that about VJ. (More majors). I think he definitely will win some more, but not sure if he should have won more.

Even when he won his two majors he wasnt really one of the top players. In some ways he is better now. At least more consistent. So I think we are only looking at maybe 5-6 years of him as far as expected to contend in majors. He got a late start on the tour.

The fans hate him, but you gotta respect that work ethic.

Would not be surprised to see him contend at all in the Open

Aly- I am playing Jacobsen this week in the Scottish Open. Think he is in great form right now.

His putting, before the belly putter, held him back some. I also think he is very streaky and plays a bit "moody" compared to other world class players in that when he plays bad he will be "relatively bad" for 6-8 tourneys straight and then rip off 6 straight T5's once he snaps out of it. Most of the other top players don't fall for that long a period unless truly mired in a season-long slump. He also seems to "give up" more than many other top players ( not John Daly give up but he often finishes poorly when out of it ).

Default RE:Should Vijay Singh have won more majors??

I agree about how he doesn't gut it out. However to find guy that can grind it out 100% for 35 events a year would be unusual.

I like Singh for wanting to defend the John Deere even though he should be in Scotland preparing for a major. He said "the fans deserve to see a person defend their championship." That is huge. Wish more players would be like him in that regard.

Its funny golf fans don't typically like Singh because of his attitude and his non flamboyance. However some of the tour players that I know consider him one of their best friends. I find that interesting.

Default RE:Should Vijay Singh have won more majors??

Vijay is potentially the best player out there and he knows he should be winning or very close every week including majors. However, when his putter lets him down he doesn't have the mental strength to get through it - that's his number one and only weakness. His abiliy to be so aggressive in his play shows he feels he is the best but his relative lack of results is getting him down.

He needs to take a few weeks off and get a good mind guru and get comfortable with the belly putter again. If he does this he will win again at leat twice this year but probably not the PGA - too close. Sometimes, I think he is more comfortable feeling there are better players out there than him - with Woods in decline there is no one that is better than Vijay and he knows it and so his level has dropped to match the others.

Triple Pop 3 ball

Singh/Daly -129 over Eldrick round 1



Daly 15-1 top 5, 80-1 to win.

Should be 15-1 to win, not top 5. Vijay 13-1

Just read a preview article in the Racing Post online (English Sports Paper) that VJ shot 77 in a practice round for the USPGA
