Singh fails to show up for Open qualifier
Vijay Singh has failed to show up for his tee time in a U.S.
Open qualifier. It’s likely his streak of playing in every major
championship for the last 17 years is about to end.
Singh shot a 7-under 65 in the final round of the Memorial on
Sunday, then told reporters he would not try to qualify Monday. His
only other chance would be to win or finish second in the St. Jude
Classic in Memphis, Tenn., this week, although it was not certain
that the three-time major champion would even play that
Singh has played the last 67 majors, the longest active streak
in golf. A year ago, he was given a special exemption to the U.S.
Open at Pebble Beach, but USGA executive director Mike Davis has
said no special exemptions were likely to be awarded this year.
