Jeev Milkha Singh smoothed a 5-under-par first round of 33-33=66 in the Made in Denmark tournament at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.
The 44-year-old Indian enjoyed seven straight years on the European Tour from 2006 and is a four-time winner, but recent times have been tough and he hasn't finished better than 133rd on the Race to Dubai since 2012. This year he is 164th with just two top ten finishes, both in Thailand, and he hasn't recorded a top 30 in Europe itself since the Lyoness Open in June 2015. This round may help change that. Starting on the back nine he ticked red at 11 and 15 before launching his second nine with three more ticks in four holes at 1, 3 and 4. He made bogey at No. 5 but made up for it with a final birdie at the 8th. When he signed his card as a late morning starter he was solo fifth and four behind the co-leaders.

Jeev Milkha Singh will be flying the Indian flag during this week's U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont CC.

Ten years ago the genial Indian became a fixture on the European Tour, capturing four wins and reeling off seven seasons in which he featured highly in the rankings. But he’s hit a lull and has not bettered 133rd in the Race to Dubai in the last three years - and is not on course to improve that in 2016. He was T7 in the Thailand Classic in March, but it was his first top ten since the Dubai Desert Classic in 2013 and he arrives 0-for-3. Four previous U.S. Open starts have seen him play three weekends but never break the top 30 (or indeed 73 in any one round). His best result was T36 (at Oakmont) and he did take fewer putts than anyone in the field in 2006, but missed the cut on his most recent visit in 2009. If nothing else the vibes will be good. When his entry was confirmed a few days ago he tweeted: "Looking forward to battling the unrelenting Oakmont. I love the @usopengolf"

Jeev Milkha Singh finished T7 on 11-under 277 at last week's True Thailand Classic for his first top 10 on any tour since T10 at the 2013 Dubai Desert Classic.

In his second appearance on the Blue Mountain GC, Singh, 44, posted rounds of 73-68-69-67 for his first top 10 in his last 93 worldwide events. He played in the inaugural edition last year but missed the cut.

Jeev Milkha Singh painted a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round at the UBS Hong Kong at Fanling.

The Indian is a four-time European Tour winner but, at 140th on the Race To Dubai, he needs a top three finish this week to keep his card. Singh had a mixed front nine with bogeys at 1 and 9 flanking birdies at 3, 4 and 6. But on the back nine he found a groove and circled birdies at 11, 13, 14 and 18 to pull within a shot of the lead held by Andrea Pavan and Lu Wei-chih. The 43-year-old has missed his last three cuts in this event but did finish third in 2006 and seventh in 2010. Today, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation.

Jeev Milkha Singh was T5 in the last British Masters to be played and he'll try his luck again in this week's edition at Woburn.

That top five came back at The Belfry in 2008 after which the tournament fell of the European Tour schedule until it was resurrected this year. Singh has played in 24 events this season but only cashed in 10 and is down at 153rd on the Race To Dubai. The latest was a T33 in the Open de Italia although since then he's missed the cut at the Porsche European Open in Germany and last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland. The Indian has contested two previous British Masters on this week's course, the Marquess, but crashed out at halfway in both 2001 and 2003.

Surprisingly, Jeev Milka Singh hasn't contested the Hero Indian Open since 2008 but he does line up in this year's field.

Singh - one of the few top Indian golfers not sponsored by Hero - has won national Opens all around the world (Scotland, Singapore, China and Austria) but has never triumphed in his own. At least he gives himself the opportunity this week although stories suggest he's not a big fan of Delhi Golf Club (one top 10 in last four visits). Current form is a concern too as he's missed his last two cuts.

Jeev Milkha Singh maintains his busy schedule by making a 15th start at the Emirates to contest this week's Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The Indian just keeps on running, much like his father Milkha Singh who finished fourth in the 400m final at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. After making 24 starts from April onwards in 2014, Singh has started 2015 with a T63 in Abu Dhabi and a T38 in the Qatar Masters. As for this week, he boasts a strong record at the Emirates and has cashed seven times in his last eight starts. Four of those were top 20s, including a T10 in 2013 when he sat fourth after 54 holes. His best finish is T6 in 2001.

Jeev Milkha Singh cashed in a win at the Scottish Open for a spot in the field at the World Golf Championships–HSBC Champions.

Singh tied for 23rd in last season’s edition, and looks to improve on that this week at Mission Hills' Olazabal Course. He’s teed it up three times with the world’s elite this season, with a T67 at the WGC-Bridgestone his best showing. He has not cracked a top 20 since his win in Scotland the week preceding the British Open.

Jeev Milkha Singh turned in an even-par 32-38=70 for his opening round of the British Open.

The penultimate qualifier into the major (via his win in Scotland on Sunday) split half of his fairways and greens, so his score makes sense, but it's how he arrived at it that's interesting. He sprinkled five birdies in between three bogeys and a double and played his final seven holes in 3-over. Afterwards, he said that he had planned on traveling to India before his backdoor victory at Castle Stuart, but was grateful (obviously) to crack the field at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.

With a birdie on the first hole of a playoff, Jeev Milkha Singh emerged with the victory at the Scottish Open.

Francesco Molinari was attempting to go wire-to-wire at Castle Stuart Golf Links, but he closed with an even-par 72 to give Singh a chance. The eventual champ was in the 10th-to-last pairing today. After signing for a bogey-free, 5-under 67 to post 17-under 271, he later said that the repaired to the clubhouse to have tea and chocolate cake, only to witness the field regress. Despite an otherwise impressive week, Molinari need to convert an eight-footer for par on the 72nd hole to force sudden death. After the Italian's long-range birdie never threatened to drop, Singh curled in a right-to-lefter for birdie from about 15 feet to secure his fourth European Tour victory. As the highest finisher inside the top five not already exempt into the British Open, Singh will make the trip to Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Remarkably, it will be just his second appearance in the major (MC, 2007). He's also now exempt into next month's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Jeev Milkha Singh did not appear in a PGA TOUR event in 2011.

For a guy that was so intent on earning his PGA TOUR card, which he did in 2010, that he didn't make one start this season is surprising. He entered with a Minor Medical Extension affording four events to earn $366,732 and an elevation in status, but never committed to a single tournament. Minor medicals do not carry over into the following year, so unless he gives Q School a try and graduates, we won't see much of him if at all on the PGA TOUR in 2012.

Jeev Milkha Singh signed for a 3-over-par 37-38=75 following his opening round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

Singh is in our crosshairs today since he withdrew from last week's Challenge Tour opener in his native India due to recurring back trouble. If his body allows it, he is expected to compete in each of the next five weeks as well.

Jeev Milkha Singh withdrew from the Gujarat Kensville Challenge on the Challenge Tour, citing a back injury.

Singh was the signature entry for the developmental tour's season-opening event in India. Undoubtedly, this is the same malady that kept him out of play for all of December until a return at last week's Royal Trophy. For the time being, he's scheduled to appear in next week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

Returning to competition for the first time since a sore back bumped him from the Casio World Open in late November, Jeev Milkha Singh is ready to tee it up at this week's Royal Trophy in Thailand.

The Indian battled an injury to the rotator cuff in his left shoulder most of 2010 before incurring the back issue. On Dec. 16, he wrote the following in his blog: "Starting 2011, I am planning to cut down on the number of tournaments I play. I generally play 36 tournaments but next year I would play around 30. I have realized it the hard way that I am no longer young, and I am definitely not Superman. I need to give my body ample rest." None of the seven events on his schedule are in the U.S. While he has a Minor Medical Extension affording four events on the PGA TOUR, he cannot be relied upon as a go-to in long-term formats.

Jeev Milkha Singh has been given a Minor Medical Extension in 2011.

Singh was sidelined for several weeks during the spring due to a rotator cuff injury in his left shoulder. As a result, since he finished 164th on the money list, he has four events to earn $366,732 and get elevated to the Major Medical category. Should he fall short but bank $143,484, he'll have conditional status for the remainder of 2011.
