Vijay down, not out of FedEx Cup

Friday, August 28, 2009

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Vijay Singh’s defense of the FedEx Cup is off to a bad start. He shot a second straight 75 and missed the cut at The Barclays. However, a missed cut isn’t as damaging this year because the FedEx Cup points re-set won’t happen until before the Tour Championship. (It’s complicated, just take my word for it.) At No. 59 in the rankings heading into The Barclays, he should be safe for the Deutsche Bank Championship field next week, but Singh will need to step it up a notch if he expects to retain the Cup. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
