The reigning champion of the FedEx Cup, Vijay Singh, will miss about five weeks after the completion of the Mercedes-Benz Championship this weekend. The Mercedes-Benz Championship is the first official tournament of the year. Singh will have doctors operate on his right knee to have some routine work done on his meniscus.  His targeted date of return is the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am where he will pair up with his son. It will be interesting to see how he shoots this weekend with a knee that Singh said was injured at the Chevron World Challenge (won). We will find out pretty soon just how much damage was done to the ligament based on how he scores. I wouldn’t expect any Tiger-esque heroics for this event, but  if the knee is a factor it will be quite obvious that it is on his mind.
