Singh favored in Houston Open

April 20, 2005 at 6:02 PM   |   Comments

HOUSTON, April 20 (UPI) -- Vijay Singh, a member of the this year's World Golf Hall of Fame induction class, will be the favorite when the Houston Open begins Thursday.

PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem announced on the eve of the tournament that Singh will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Singh is trying to regain the world No. 1 spot currently held by Tiger Woods, who is not competing this week.

The No. 1 spot has been tossed back and forth between Singh and Woods in recent months.

Singh returns to the tour after taking last week off and will be defending one of the 10 titles he won in 2004 while becoming player of the year.
