Vijay Singh, at 53, grabs share of first-round lead at Sony Open

A month away from turning 53, Vijay Singh showed Thursday in the Sony Open why he doesn't spend a lot of time with players his own age.

Singh made birdie on his last two holes in gorgeous weather near the shores of Waikiki for a seven-under-par 63 and a share of the early lead with Ricky Barnes and Morgan Hoffmann. It was Singh's best score at Waialae by two shots and his lowest opening round in more than three years.

Barnes made four straight birdies at the turn and closed with an up-and-down from behind the green on the par-five 18th, while Hoffman holed a 25-foot eagle putt on his final hole at the par-five ninth to join the early leaders.
