Singh starts season without regular caddie

Vijay Singh will start the new season without the caddie he has had since June 2003.

Singh and Dave Renwick had a testy relationship toward the end of the Fijian's record-setting season, and it ended in late November at the Grand Slam of Golf in Hawaii.

At least for now.

Renwick is in Scotland, taking a much-needed break from 18 months with the hard-working, and at times hard-nosed Singh.

``I'm not retired,'' Renwick said from his home near Edinburgh. ``I spoke to Vijay the other day and said I would call him the first week in March. If I don't come back with Vijay, I'll look for someone else.''

Singh will use his trainer, Joey Diovisalvi, at the Mercedes Championships, and then Paul Tesori at the Sony Open and beyond. Tesori, who had been working for Jerry Kelly, was Singh's caddie until the middle of 2003.

Renwick can enjoy the fruits of his labor. Singh won more than $11 million worldwide last year, and assuming Renwick got the standard 10 percent, the caddie would have earned enough to finish in the top 70 on the PGA Tour money list.

``I'm just going to hang out at home, spend time with the wife and family, not do too much,'' Renwick said. ``I'll be ready to get back to work.''
