Belfry (Britain), Sep 26 (IANS) Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh continued his great season with an impressive three-under-par 69 to stay close to the leaders at tied eighth after the first round of the British Masters golf.India’s other challenger Shiv Kapur shot a 70, while Jyoti Randhawa shot 73 here Thursday.
Jeev, the Asian Tour No.1 in 2006, carded six birdies at the Belfry to end the day in tied eighth place, three shots behind co-leaders Marcus Fraser and Mikael Lundberg.
Jeev, who is presently 13th on the European Order of Merit, needs to stay inside the top-15 to earn exemptions into next year’s British Open and US Open.
“I am playing well and it is a good start. I will try and build on it,” said Jeev, who is still carrying an ankle injury. “Yes, it is there, but improving slowly.”
Kapur is currently lying in 110th position on the merit list and needs to finish in the top-115 to retain his playing rights in Europe.
