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

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.

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