Vijay Singh sidelined with foot injury

Golfer Vijay Singh, the second-round leader of last weekend's Masters Tournament, will be sidelined indefinitely with an injured left foot, his agent said.

Singh has plantar fascitis, which causes pain in the arch and blisters on the foot, said Clarke Jones, Singh's agent with IMG.

He added that Singh's foot became worse Sunday night, after a seventh-place finish at the Masters, his eighth tournament in nine weeks. Singh fell out of contention with a quadruple-bogey 9 on the 15th hole on Sunday's final round. He finished seven strokes behind Masters winner Tiger Woods.

``It's come up at a bad time,'' Jones said from his office in Cleveland. ``We don't want a situation where he's not going to be healthy for the next major.''

Jones said he didn't know if rest and therapy would be sufficient to heal Singh's foot or if additional procedures would be needed. The next major is the U.S. Open, scheduled for June 13- 16 at the Black Course at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, New York.

Singh, who won the 1998 U.S. PGA Championship and 2000 Masters, was scheduled to play in a skins event in India this weekend.

``I was really looking forward to my first golfing trip to India,'' Singh -- a native of Fiji -- said in a statement released by IMG's London office.
