Jeev stumbles to tied 36th in Irish Open

Adare Manor, Ireland, May 18 (UNI) Ace Indian pro Jeev Milkha Singh had a disappointing penultimate day at the Irish Open as he stumbled to three-over 75 and was at tied 36th spot.

Jeev, who had a great start to the tournament when he was tied for the lead on the opening day, continued to slip and took his total to one-over 217.

It was a disastrous start for the Chandigarh golfer and as if the two bogeys on second and fourth were not enough, Jeev dropped a double bogey on the sixth hole to make it even tougher for him.

However, he did sink a birdie and made the turn three-over.

He then tried to fight back and picked up a stroke on the 10th hole but bogeys on the 13th and 17th further dented his prospects.

He then sank in a birdie on the par-five 18th hole to round off the disappointing day on a positive note.

Jeev is the only Indian to make the cut after Jyoti Randhawa, Shiv Kapur and Indian Masters champion SSP Chowrasia failed moved out of the fray.

Welshman Bradley Dredge took the sole lead and carded an impressive six-under 66 to take his total to nine-under 207, one clear of England's Richard Finch, who posted a seven-under 65.
