Lytham St Annes (England), Jul 22: Jeev Milkha Singh finished his campaign at the British Open rather tamely with a three-over 73 that ended with a double bogey on the 18th on Sunday.

Jeev's 73 saw him end the week at 10-over 280 and in tied 73rd place.

He was off even before Anirban Lahiri had teed up for the final round.

"Wish him (Lahiri) luck from my side. He is having great week and will learn a lot from this week," said Jeev.

Lahiri was due to tee of at just before 1 pm local time.

Jeev admitted he was disappointed at not being able to do better, but said, "I was really glad to be here. I enjoyed every bit of it. I expected better results than the way it has ended up. I fought hard."

"My goal was to finish under par but I fell short. Mentally I'm tired and I'll rest next week and start again at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational (in August). I must admit I was not mentally sharp enough. May be it was the highs of last week. So, I am looking forward to a week in Chandigarh."

"Time to celebrate (the Scottish win). We'll have a few parties at home. Will be nice to catch up with the family after the Scottish win and the start at the Open. My next two events will be the WGC at Akron and the PGA Championships at Kiawah Islands. I should have recharged my batteries by then," he added.
