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. Mon, Oct 29, 2012 09:49:00 PM

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.

Jeev Milkha Singh spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

The rookie hit 13 (of 14) fairways, 16 greens and needed just 28 putts in his inaugural competitive round at Sedgefield. His longest of six birdie conversions was 21'6" at the par-4 8th hole. It's the third time in his career that he's posted a personal low of 64 on the PGA TOUR. He was the sixth into the clubhouse at the number.

Jeev Milkha Singh posted a 4-over-par 39-37=76 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

The rookie was concerned about his left shoulder (tendonitis) during tee balls today, but his entire game was off. Back in action for the first time since the Transitions, Singh hit just five (of 14) fairways and seven GIR at TPC San Antonio today. Both of his birdies were on par 5s. Continue to steer clear until he's regained health, form and confidence.

Due to a shoulder injury, Jeev Milkha Singh will remain out of action until at least mid-May.

Singh provided some insight on his ailing left shoulder. "I have no idea when exactly I picked up the injury," Singh wrote for GulfNews.com, "but it has been bothering me for some time. Fortunately, the scans showed no tear, but that is also the frustrating part. I was told that a couple of weeks rest and physio would get me up and running once again, but that did not happen." As a result, he has withdrawn from next week's Quail Hollow Championship and the Italian Open on the European Tour the week after. (He is not eligible for THE PLAYERS on May 6-9.) The PGA TOUR rookie is hoping to return to competition at the Texas Open on May 13-16.

Jeev Milkha Singh has been removed from the early field of next week's Open de Espana on the European Tour.

His web site has also been updated to reflect the dropped commitment to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. What remains there is next week's Quail Hollow Championship. However, approach that with a grain of salt as he has both the Byron Nelson and BMW PGA Championships listed as well; they're held simultaneously on May 20-23. We'll know of his official intention for Charlotte this Friday afternoon; that's when the field is released.

Jeev Milkha Singh has not competed anywhere since missing the cut at the Transitions Championship due to an injury in the rotator cuff of his left shoulder.

Specifically, Singh injured a tendon, forcing the layoff. "For almost eight weeks I would finish playing and get physiotherapy on the shoulder almost every day," Singh said in late March. "I must have hit an awkward shot sometime that brought about the injury and it kept getting worse and worse as I kept playing. My physiotherapist finally told me that if I didn’t take time off right away, I might have to be out for the whole year." His web site lists planned starts at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans and next week's Quail Hollow Championship, but he's not in the field for the prior and he's listed in the early field for next week's European Tour event in Spain instead.

Jeev Milkha Singh ended Matt Kuchar's stay at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, beating the American 1 up in the Jones Bracket in the second round.

Kuchar won the first hole with a par, but Singh tightened the screws, winning four unanswered to get to 3 up through 13. Kuchar then won the 14th and 15th with birdies before running out of steam. Each parred the last three. Singh advances into the third round in his first appearance at this event. He'll play Ian Poulter on Friday.

Jeev Milkha Singh eliminated Padraig Harrington 3 and 1 in the Jones Bracket in the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Harrington played the final five in 2-over without a birdie while Singh was 1-under over the same stretch to claim three holes. The Indian advances to face Matt Kuchar on Thursday.
