Vijay Singh's trainer filling in as caddy

Vijay Singh has won twice with his trainer, Joey Diovisalvi, working as his caddy. Singh said there is good karma between the two, but it only lasts so long in the player-caddy relationship.

Diovisalvi is a whiz at creating fitness routines. He certainly is strong enough to carry a golf bag, especially on a mountainous layout like the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Hawaii, where the Mercedes Championships was played. But he's not a pro caddy, so Singh does a lot of the leg work.

"It gives me a lot better feel of where I need to hit on the greens and where the pin is," Singh said. "At times when you do that, you get more focused on pin placement, where the trouble is, where you've got to hit it.

"But it's also a hassle, running around and doing your own yardages. I kind of get tired of it after two weeks. That's why I'm getting my old caddy back."

Diovisalvi will work again this week at the Sony Open, also in Hawaii, but Paul Tesori will return to be his caddy at the Buick Invitational, which begins Jan. 17 in San Diego.
