The winner of three majors has a lifetime status on the PGA Tour, which he regularly enjoys, however, specific selection conditions will not allow him to play at the Colonial Golf club.

Singh found a great alternative and decided to show up for the Korn Ferry Tour, which will be held the same week at the TPC Sawgrass Golf club-the home arena of the 57 – year-old golfer. According to the rules, any representative of the main Tour has the right to play in the second division, but this decision of the honored veteran did not like some of his colleagues from the second League. One of the Korn Ferry Tour players spoke very negatively about this in social networks and reproached Singh that his decision to play at the Korn Ferry Challenge tournament just steals a place from one of the golfers trying to earn a living.

In the course of a heated exchange for a colleague, Phil Mickelson was forced to intercede (Phil Mickelson): “It is no secret that our relationship with Vijay is not close, but I would like to speak in his defense. Not only is he a member of the Golf Hall of Fame, he has also made a significant contribution to the development of the PGA Tour, on which the Korn Ferry Tour depends financially. So he deserves to play where and when he wants to.”
