Vijay Singh wins Toshiba Classic, his first individual PGA Tour Champions victory and first win in nearly 10 years! 

It's been a long time since Vijay Singh won on the PGA tour, with 34 PGA tour victories to his name, the long drought he has suffered must have taken it's toll. This former inductee into the World Golf Hall of Fame won nine time in 2004, three in 2008, and had not won until his recent victory in the Toshiba classic. 

His recent win by only a stroke finally broke his drought. 

According to Singh:

“Every time I tee up here I put so much pressure on me that I have to win,” he said. “It’s kind of the wrong way to approach it. Like this week, I just went out there, just play and enjoy it. If you win you win. If you don’t there’s always next week.”

The win drought was not due to the fact that he has not been playing, as he has played a total of 212 tournaments since he won the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2008. 

Vijay indicates that he will play more frequently on the PGA Tour Champions tour, with some additional time on the PGA Tour this year. Hopefully there won't be a similar break between his latest win and the next one!

It wasn't a win, but Tiger Woods has us believing that day is coming, perhaps even soon.

Tiger has given glimpses of past form in his latest appearance, significantly improving upon his performance in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, where he looked unmotivated.

He finished 12th in the Honda Classic, which while not super impressive on the face of it, contained some impressive sequences of shots, with hole proximity of 29 feet 3 inches and a driving distance of 318.9 yds, placing him first and second in the stats respectively. 

But will he be able to continue to improve, even if the rate of improvement is extremely incremental?

According to Brandt Snedeker: “I don’t see it going backwards from here,” “Only going to get better.”

Tiger's climb up the rankings has been explosive, with a jump from 388th to 149th due to his recent showing at Valspar.

On his upcoming appearances at Orlando and Bay Hill, Woods seems cautiously optimistic:

“I’m very excited,” he said. “Nice to get back.”
