Atlanta, Georgia - Vijay Singh, who earned 10 million dollars in his last outing, has decided to take a break from the golf tour.

Singh, 45, said some nagging injuries are the reason he is pulling out of a couple of Asian tournaments he had planned to compete in over the next two months.

Singh, who clinched the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup title on Sunday, said the only events he plans to play the rest of the year are the Father/Son Challenge and the Tiger Woods World Challenge, both in December.

"I've been hurt a lot," Singh said. "My arm still hurts and my back still hurts, so I'm going to take some time off and get myself in good shape physically and see if I can come out stronger to continue with my sport."
