Vijay Singh completes Grand Slam field

World number two Vijay Singh will complete the elite four-man field for the Grand Slam of Golf, the U.S. PGA Tour announced on Tuesday.

Singh, the winner of four events this season but not one of the majors, joins British Open and U.S. Masters champion Tiger Woods, U.S. Open winner Michael Campbell of New Zealand and PGA champion Phil Mickelson in the 36-hole event.

The Grand Slam is scheduled for November 22-23 at Poipu Bay Golf Course in Kauai, Hawaii.

The Fijian finished second on the major champions points list (273.16) and replaces South African Retief Goosen (288.83), who is unable to compete due to scheduling conflicts.

The major champions points list is composed of past major winners who competed in the 2005 majors.

Singh was the only player aside from world number one Woods to finish in the top 10 in golf's four majors, tying for fifth in the Masters, sharing sixth in the U.S. Open, a tie for fifth in the British Open, and tied for 10th in the PGA Championship.

The Grand Slam of Golf features a total purse of $1 million with $400,000 going to the winner.
