BETHESDA, Md. — Vijay Singh still pounds golf balls on the range as much as anyone on the planet, his love for the game and his search for more hardware measured in each shot he takes.
Despite celebrating his 50th birthday three years ago and being inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame 10 years ago, and despite his 34 PGA Tour titles, all the aches and pains associated with the unrelenting march of time and his relentless attack on buckets of balls, he knows he can hang with the younger set on the PGA Tour.
So there Singh was on the driving range Friday on a stifling day north of the nation’s capital, sending one ball after another toward the horizon shortly after taking up residence on the first page of the leaderboard through two rounds of the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club. At 53, the Big Fijian can become the oldest winner on the PGA Tour – Sam Snead was 52, 10 months, 8 days when he won the 1965 Greater Greensboro Open.
But he isn’t…
