Vijay Singh has a new bag


Papa’s got a brand new bag – or at least Vijay does. Singh is now carrying a Never Compromise-logoed golf bag around the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour this week. NC is the putter brand of Cleveland/Srixon, the golf equipment multinational with which Singh has been allied for some time now.
One sign the golf economy might be easing a little: There’s money for enhancements to top courses. The folks at La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA West out in the golf-crazy Coachella Valley of California (Palm Springs area) have spent $10 million on improvements lately. Some of that went to GPS Industries’ “Inforemer” HD/MAX GPS course yardage and information system. And to reinforce its reputation as an international golf destination, La Quinta and PGA West went for the multi-lingual models. The units can convey crucial info in up to four languages at any one time, which course owners can choose from this menu: English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian and Swedish. Arigato.
