Singh has won two golf majors a€"the 1998 US PGA Championships and the 2000 Augusta Masters. And returning home to the land of his roots after nearly 20 years meant a lot to the Fijian Golfer of Indian origin. "A lot has been said about me not recognising my roots, which is not true," says Singh. The golfers visit to the country follows his win at the five million dollar Tour Championship in Atlanta. He says his career was at its peak and was keen to carry on his form into the next season.
