Two-time former champion Vijay Singh is OUT of the US PGA Championship.

His place has been taken by Wyndham Clark with Brandon Hagy moving up to first alternate.

The Fijian missed the cut on his most recent major start at The Masters last month.

A winner of 34 PGA Tour titles, Singh spent 32 weeks as the No.1 ranked player in the world between 2004 and 2005. He won his first Wanamaker Trophy at Sahalee Country Club in Washington in 1998, holding off Steve Stricker to win by two shots.

He repeated the trick six years later, this time at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, where he defeated Chris DiMarco and former Open champion Justin Leonard in a playoff.

World No.150 Clark , meantime, made his major championship debut in last year’s US PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.
