ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) No one should have been more thrilled than Vijay Singh to hear about the voting changes for the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Singh is already in.
He was elected in 2005 with 56 percent of the vote from a panel that consisted mainly of golf writers, most of whom the big Fijian had blown off over the years. By then, Singh had 25 PGA Tour victories, three majors, two PGA Tour money titles and one Jack Nicklaus Award as player of the year. He is among the greats in the game.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The Texas Open is the last chance for players to crack the top 50 in the world ranking and earn a spot in the Masters.
The drama is lacking this year.
Richard Sterne is No. 53 and George Coetzee is No. 55 - except they're not in the field at San Antonio. The only players at the Valero Texas Open who can move into the top 50 are Chesson Hadley (No. 56) and Ryan Palmer (No. 62). Everyone else who could make it to the top 50 would have to win - and that's an automatic invitation, anyway.
