Singh Named as Newest Inductee to Golf Hall of Fame

Vijay Singh
Vijay Singh of Fiji has been named as the newest inductee into the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Florida.

Singh was undoubtedly helped by a spectacular 2004 season that included nine victories. The 42-year-old Singh is currently number-two in the world rankings. He is in Texas defending one of those titles at the Houston Open. Singh was chosen on 56 percent of returned ballots.

Larry Nelson, Curtis Strange, Henry Picard and Craig Wood round out the top five vote getters.

The winner of 25 PGA Tour events including three major championships, Singh is the youngest member to be elected on the PGA Tour-Champions Tour ballot.

The World Golf Hall of Fame's annual induction ceremony is scheduled for November 14.
