August 28, 2016: Jeev Milkha Singh produced a solid performance for much of this week, before a late string of bogeys derailed his quest for a top 20 finish in Made in Denmark. Nonetheless, Jeev did enjoy a great week in Denmark, playing the kind of golf we have known him for years.
The hunger is clearly driving the great man forward. Jeev Milkha Singh is not ready to give in just yet, despite long years under the Sun flying the Indian flag on the international circuit. After a brilliant week of golf at the Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort, Jeev finished T21 in the European Tour’s Made in Denmark.
Lying T21 overnight, Jeev started off firing on all cylinders. The 44 year old stamped his authority on the course in Farso with some early birdies.
Jeev took shots off the course at the first, fourth and sixth holes as he kept his sheet clean through the first eight holes.
A bogey at the par-4 ninth halted his march and another lost shot at the twelfth hole reduced his advantage for the day to just one under, with six left to play.
A double bogey at the 14th came as an unexpected setback, as Jeev dropped into over par territory. The Indian clenched his teeth from there, producing four straight pars to end the week on his own terms.
Despite dropping 14 spots, this must count as a positive week for Jeev. He looked set to challenge for a top ten finish after making three early birdies.
There is a new spring in the step for Jeev Milkha Singh. After missing the cut in eight of nine events, he has bounced back in style with a top ten finish at the King’s Cup. He finished just outside the top 50 in the D+D Real Czech Masters, before producing this brilliant effort this week in Denmark.
Jeev is currently ranked 776th in the world, but is clearly playing a higher level. If he can find some consistency through the rest of this season, it will not be long before he regains some of his past glory.
