Ponte Vedra, FL -- Less than 48 hours after Vijay Singh claimed the 2nd annual FedEx Cup, the eponymous trophy has allegedly been lost by UPS in transit between East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta and Vijay's home in northeast Florida. A spokesman for UPS said they have no record of the trophy being shipped, despite Vijay being able to produce both a receipt and a tracking number.
Singh would have taken the cup with him on his short flight home, but knew he would be charged an additional $30 by American Airlines for the extra piece of checked luggage and shipped it en route to the airport.
Yesterday, Vijay claimed the tracking number showed the trophy leaving UPS' Atlanta processing center and then reappearing 29 hours later in Yakutsk, a city on the eastern edge of Siberia. The tracking number now reads as "invalid."
