Lets take a break from Tennis and talk about Golf

Arjun attwal wins maybank malyasian open.
Well i'm soo happy to see him win after what he has gone through last year. That car accident he survived and apart from that he also possibly face charges on vehicular homicide for alleged involved in drag racing which killed a person. Although those charges are dropped. But he certainly kept his focus and came through.
this is attwal's third european tour title.(and he won here for the second time and also he also won singapore open in 2002.) With this win he certainly wins two year exempt in european tour.(that is upto 2010.)

Indian golf is on rise.
Well when was the last time did indian golfers finish in top 10 in 4 consecutive weeks.
Very interesting. Good day for golf in india.

Re: Lets take a break from Tennis and talk about Golf

India’s ace golfer Jeev Milkha Singh's fortune is not going with his way these days as once again he came agonisingly close to winning a title but lost in a deciding playoffs to Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell after a neck-to-neck tussle in the final round of the Ballantine’s Championship at the Pinx Golf Club in Jeju Island, South Korea on last Sunday.

Jeev (68, 66, 64, 66) and McDowell (68, 64, 66, 66) were involved in a playoff as both ended the regulation 18 holes in the final round with totals of twenty-four under 264. The two professionals also fired the best rounds (66) of the final day along with Englishman Zane Scotland.

The Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) member thus had to consent with his second runners-up finish of the year. His previous runners-up finish this season came at the Indonesia Open. PGTI member Jyoti Randhawa was the next best Indian at tied 11th.

Even though Jeev did not win, his top-notch performance at the Pinx Golf Club has helped him climb to sixth position on the European Tour Order of Merit. Jeev was 40th on the European Tour Order of Merit prior to the start of Ballantine’s Championship.

He has also climbed from seventh to second on the UBS Asian Tour Order of Merit. Besides his two runners-up finish this year, Jeev has also registered two other top 20s. He was tied 11th at the Johnnie Walker Classic in India and tied 19th at the Dubai Desert Classic. Jeev is now certain to make a leap in the world rankings as well.

In fact, Jeev was a stroke ahead after 16 holes but then bogeyed the 17th to make it all square. On the 17th, Jeev chipped out from the rough and made a two-putt. The Chandigarh golfer then saved par on the 18th by converting a crucial seven feet putt and as a result ensured a playoff between himself and McDowell who also made par on the 18th.

The playoff that teed-off on the par four 18th was a nerve wrecking affair. Both Singh and McDowell parred the first playoff hole. On the second playoff hole (18th), Singh looked down and out as McDowell’s approach shot landed on the fringe of the green to the right side while his own second shot landed in the bunker to the right of the green.

However, both players once again made par when McDowell two-putted and Singh chipped out and made a brave 15 feet putt. The third playoff hole (18th) proved to be decisive. After both players found the fairway, Singh hit a magnificent approach that stopped six feet short of the pin.

McDowell soaked the pressure to hit an even better shot that landed just two feet short of the hole. McDowell sealed the title when Jeev missed his six feet putt and made par while he holed his short putt for birdie.

Jeev’s finish in Korea was reminiscent of his last runners-up finish at the Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open in February where he had missed a three and a half feet par putt on the closing hole that handed Chile’s Felipe Aguilar the title.

I saw the last 6 holes or so and it was so heart-breaking. Jeev had it in his grasp but he blew it with bogie at 16 and he struggled after that. The sad thing was he was leading for most part of the day but just came short when it really mattered. Still it was not a bad finish

BTW Jeev has started with a 68-3 off the lead at WGC after day 1..Go Jeev

Same thing hppened in the Indonesian Open too. one stage he got 3 shots lead with 3 holes to go. I think when it comes to finishing he has some Sania Mirza type problem
But Jeev is improving
Jeev finished 7 under 281 at WGC and finished joint 26th, not a bad effort!
btw 7 indian among the top 15 in asian tour order of merit.

Re: Lets take a break from Tennis and talk about Golf

Jeev is tied to third at the Scottish open. He is two shots away from the lead with 18 holes to play tommorow.
This event also has big time players ernie els (former double USO champ and british open champ), phil mickelson.(double masters champ and PGA major champ.) the former USO champ ange cabrera, and many other top ten players as well. Jeev did a pretty good job so far in a tough field.
and good luck tommorow i hope you finish in top 3 and qualify for USO.

Re: Lets take a break from Tennis and talk about Golf

Jeev finished 9th with 7 under & could not qualify for the British open. I always found him little bit unsettled in the final round. nevertheless another top 10 finish.

This is Jeev's second title of the season, following his Bank Austria Open triumph in Vienna.

He birdied thrice last four holes -- for the sensational win.

The fact that he had to play 35 holes in the last day didnt help him one single bit but still a real good effort under tough conditions..It was raining the whole time and it was a Great effort from him..
