Singh’s suit draws little public reaction at TPC

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Aside from a spectator wearing fake deer antlers, there was little public reaction at The Players Championship to the lawsuit Vijay Singh filed against the PGA Tour.

Singh sued the governing body Wednesday for exposing him to “public humiliation and ridicule” during a 12-week investigation into his use of deer antler spray. The tour dropped its case last week.

The lawsuit and its timing raised eyebrows. The Players Championship is the Tour’s flagship event and is played on Singh’s home course.

But there was almost no reaction from the gallery while Singh played the opening round at TPC Sawgrass. The most noticeable response came at the first tee, where Jacksonville resident Jim Kavanagh wore those felt antlers.
