IMG distances itself from Singh in wake of lawsuit


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Vijay Singh's lawsuit against the PGA Tour on Wednesday, filed by Peter R. Ginsburg Law, LLC in New York, was not assisted in any way by his long-time agency.

'He did this with no collaboration from IMG,' said Clarke Jones, IMG's managing director for North America.

Singh hasn't had a signed legal contract with IMG since he left the agency two years ago, but has since used IMG to help negotiate deals informally.

The agency had been notably quiet on his situation since a Jan. 29 admission of using deer-antler spray and the impending PGA Tour legal process.
