CARMEL, Ind. – With a bogey at the par-4 14th, Vijay Singh now projects outside the top 30 in FedExCup points. It’s the first time all day that Singh – the 54-hole co-leader with Phil Mickelson – has projected outside the players who will advance to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
The player benefitting the most from Singh’s drop is Scott Piercy, who now projects to 30th.
Singh still has four holes to make up the ground, however. He’s currently at 16 under, four shots off the lead held by Rory McIlroy, who has birdied the par-5 15th to move to 20 under.
UPDATE (5:25 p.m. ET): Singh bogeyed the par-4 16th and is now at 15 under for the tournament. That puts Singh in solo eighth place. He’s now projected to 33 in points.
