Vijay Singh To Have Knee Surgery After Mercedes
Remember when Tiger Woods went through all that knee surgery, and it was basically the only sports story for a month?
Well, Vijay Singh has announced he will be having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee next week and won't be playing for three weeks, if not longer.
This news? Buried in Golf Digest's blog. Yeah, tell me about it...
Singh said he hurt the knee three weeks ago while winning the Chevron World Challenge, though he didn't say when or how. "More than anything, it's just wear and tear on the meniscus, and it just kind of gave out," Singh said Tuesday at Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course, where he is preparing for the Mercedes-Benz Championship, the season-opening event on the PGA Tour. "It's something I needed to get done, and I didn't want to put it off."
Hummmm, (scratches chin), remember the last two months when nothing was going on? Yeah, what some call Silly Season? Seems like that would have been a perfect time to knock out surgery on your knee.
I guess this means Vijay won't be playing in 47 tournaments this year like normal. Bummer.
