Vijay Singh (born 22 February 1963) is a Fijian golfer of Indian descent who has won tournaments in many parts of the world and currently plays mainly on the U.S. based PGA TOUR. He was born in Lautoka, Fiji but grew up in Nadi. He has won three major championships (one Masters in 2000 and two PGA Championships in 1998 and 2004) and was the leading PGA Tour money winner in 2003 and 2004. In 2004 and 2005 he spent a total of 32 weeks at the top of the Official World Golf Rankings, making him the only man to displace Tiger Woods as World Number 1 so far this century.
Vijay, a resident of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, is the son of an airplane technician who also taught golf. Growing up, he admired the swing of Tom Weiskopf, using it as an early model for his own. Vijay is considered the Ben Hogan of his era, often staying at the range hours before and after his tournament rounds working on his game.
Standing six feet two (1.88 m), Vijay is married to Ardena Seth. They have a son, Qass Seth, born on 16 June 1990.
