Freak injury forces Vijay Singh to withdraw

World number two Vijay Singh pulled out of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship on Tuesday, the Fijian unable to defend his title because of back spasms.

According to television reports, Singh injured his back at home in Florida while playing table tennis with his son.

He was examined by his physician and his condition will be re-evaluated over the weekend before deciding on his schedule for the remainder of the season.

Singh is also scheduled to defend his Canadian Open title in Vancouver next week.

"I have always defended a title on the PGA TOUR and I am greatly disappointed I won't be able to do so in Boston," Singh said in a statement.

"This tournament is very special to me and I hope to return to Boston in 2006.

"I hope they have a great tournament this weekend. I only wish I was there."

Singh's withdrawal leaves Masters and British Open champion Tiger Woods as the only player in the top 10 competing in the $5.5 million event.

The tournament, being played at the TPC of Boston in Norton Mass., begins on Friday with a rare Monday finish.
