Player Notes

Jeev is the son of an Olympic runner, Milkha Singh. Struggled with injury in the early 2000s but recovered sufficiently to taste victory at 2006 Volvo China Open, an event sponsored by both the European and Asian Tours. That was one of four wins worldwide that year, including two in Japan and the season-ending Volvo Masters in Europe. He led the Asian Tour's Order of Merit and leapt to 37th on the Official World Golf Ranking. . .In 2002, Singh became the first player from his country to qualify for the U.S. Open. His American adventure continued at the PGA Tour Qualifying School finals where he was on the verge of securing his card for 2003 before a disappointing final round 77. . .Was also the first Indian golfer to qualify for the European Tour, winning his card at the end of 1997. He contended for numerous titles, but relinquished his playing rights in 2002 and focused primarily in Asia and Japan. . .In 1996, he was part of the Indian team that stunned Scotland in the Dunhill Cup in St. Andrews where Jeev beat Andrew Coltart.
