Jeev Milkha Singh Seeks Revival in Manila Masters Golf

Jeev Milkha Singh's recent struggle is difficult to imagine as it was only two years ago that he won the prestigious Scottish Open for his third victory on European soil. He was also ranked as high as 35th in the world back in 2008, the year he became the Asian Tour's Order of Merit champion for a second time with a record haul of USD 1.45 million in winnings.

Manila: Struggling to revive the form which made him India's top golfer, seasoned pro Jeev Milkha Singh has pinned his hopes of a turnaround on the USD one million Resorts World Manila Masters which tees off here on Wednesday.

From being a top-50 player in the world, the two-time Asian Tour number one has fallen on hard times over the past two seasons but the 42-year-old believes he can haul himself back into the winner's enclosure.

"It's been about 20 years since I came back here (to the Philippines). I was only about 22 or 23 years old when I last played here. I'm glad to be back after so many years and it's good to have the positive vibes and good memories from the last time I was here. I hope to build on those and play my best this week," said Singh, who won the 1995 Philippine Classic and Asian Matchplay Championship.
