- The Fijian posted 7 under for a share of the lead at the Sony Open.
- The 52-year-old is now 250th in the world.
Look who’s back! One of the coolest customers in golf just shot 63 to take a share of the lead with Americans Ricky Barnes, Morgan Hoffmann, Kevin Kisner and Brandt Snedeker. Vijay hasn’t won since 2008 and a victory in Hawaii would make him the oldest PGA TOUR winner in history.
“I feel like I can come out and win any tournament if I play well,” he said. “It’s been the same way for the past five, six years.
“I just haven’t produced the scores I want to produce, but I’m always optimistic about my next day, my next round, my next tournament. Same this year.”
Vijay is one of those dudes who obsesses over the mental game. It would be good to see the 34-time major winner notch another one under his belt and buck the trend of teenage winners.
It’s a sign you’re no longer a big gun when the PGA TOUR have no coverage of you posting a low score. At least Greg Owen was there to remind us how good these guys are…
