Singh skewered after filing lawsuit the day before tourney start

The news of Vijay Singh’s lawsuit against the PGA Tour sent a charge through TPC Sawgrass yesterday. Many of those who work in the industry were stunned by Singh’s timing -- filing the lawsuit the day before The Players Championship begins.

Singh, never known for being the warm and fuzzy type, was skewered on Twitter by, among others, Golf Channel's Randell Mell, Sports Illustrated's Gary Van Sickle and veteran golf writer Steve Elling.

An interesting twist has been the reaction of Singh’s former agency, IMG Golf. IMG and Singh were together for several years before they parted ways a few years ago. IMG has occasionally set him up in golf outings since then, but they have no formal relationship and IMG has not been in contact with Singh since the golfer first revealed that he used deer antler spray earlier this year. IMG fielded calls from reporters much of the day, but the agency is responding by saying that it doesn’t rep him. Informally, IMG is doing its best to distance the agency from this suit.

The consensus around TPC Sawgrass is that Singh might be doing more damage to his reputation by suing the PGA Tour than anything he suffered from the deer antler spray case, which the tour ultimately dropped.
