Vijay Singh has knee surgery, out for 3 weeks

Three-time major champion Vijay Singh had surgery on his right knee and was expected to miss the next three weeks on the U.S. PGA Tour.
Singh, the FedEx Cup champion, had athroscopic surgery on Wednesday in Jacksonville to repair torn cartilage. He hoped to return in time for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am starting on Feb. 12.
"The doctor says I'll be on crutches for a few days, and then I'll be OK," Singh said. "I don't consider this a big setback or anything. I think the knee will be much stronger in the long run, and it is certainly better that it happened now compared to the middle of the season."
Singh played last week at the Mercedes-Benz Championship and tied for 27th in the 33-man field.
