Singh on song at Greenbrier Classic

Former World Number One Vijay Singh made light of his 49 years to shoot a stunning   7-under 63 on the first day of the Greenbrier Classic to lead the field Thursday.

"Gosh, I don't know where that came from," Singh, who hasn't won on the PGA Tour since 2008, said. "I've been playing pretty good golf for a while, but just never got any scoring going. But today seemed I hit it close and drove the ball really well, hit a lot of greens and made some nice putts."

"Hopefully it keeps going," Singh said. "I don't feel tired. I feel really energized. I've been working really hard on my game, so it's nice to see something happen."

In particular, the man from Fiji  shot a smoking back nine in six-under 30 - his lowest in four years, taking him one stroke ahead of a trio of players that included fellow veteran Jeff Maggert, Jonathan Byrd and Martin Flores.

Singh is also way ahead of the favorite coming into the tournament, a whole eight shots ahead of tour leader Tiger Woods, who recently added the AT&T National to the Bay Hill and Memorial titles he won earlier in the year.

"I was a little bit off with my game, and on top of that I didn't have the speed of these greens at all," said Woods, who struggled immensly with his short game in a 1-over 71. "I missed literally every single putt high today."

"I've got the feel of the golf course now. I'm going to hit some balls later and definitely putt for a while."
