Vijay Singh a 'complete turd' for Korn Ferry entry: Tour golfer

He's a complete turd for playing. He's got his money and he's got his career.

"It's no secret VJ and I aren't close, but I'd like to say on his behalf that in addition to being a member of the HOF, he's a big part of the PGA Tour's success which financially subsidizes, and always has, the KFT".

Mickelson delivered his take on Twitter in response to a discussion by Golf Channel's Morning Drive crew on if Singh should be allowed to take a spot at a Korn Ferry Tour event or not.

Phil Mickelson supported Vijay Singh's entrance to a developmental tour event.

On the other hand, Singh has earned his right to enter the event and that absolutely counts for something.

The tour's flagship event, the Australian PGA Championship, will not be impacted and will take place at the Royal Queensland Golf Club from December 3-6, the statement said.

Following his evening address to the nation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson released a document outlining specifics of a new plan to tackle the novel coronavirus.

Schnell, now ranked No. 913 in the world, hopped on Twitter and blasted Singh for entering the Korn Ferry event calling him a "true piece of trash" if he ends up making the cut and accepting money from the event. "I'm still trying to make a career unlike Vijay", he replied to someone.

Singh has won 34 times on the PGA Tour since he joined in 1993, and won the FedExCup in 2008.

The tournament, now co-sanctioned by the European Tour, dates back to 1905 and was won a year ago by world number six Adam Scott at the Royal Pines Resort, where it had been played since 2013.

Singh, 57, is a World Golf Hall of Fame inductee now playing on the PGA Tour Champions for senior players. The 35-year-old has one Korn Ferry Tour win to his name and has finished in the top 25 twice in PGA Tour events, but has yet to earn his PGA Tour card. If Singh feels playing in a Korn Ferry event will help his game and he has the ability and means to do it, he should do it. Singh hasn't commented on why he has entered the field, but my best guess is that it's because the event is being held at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Verda Beach, Florida where he resides. This is why, including myself, we should all breathe a little before posting something.

Singh, like every other professional golfer on the planet, is ready to get the competitive juices flowing again, and playing in a Korn Ferry Tour event just so happens to be his only way of doing that. Singh is considered a "life member" of the PGA Tour, but there is no eligibility category for that week's Tour event, the Charles Schwab Challenge, since it is an invitational.
