New Delhi:At 40, Jeev Milkha Singh is currently the highest ranked Asian golfer, according to the latest official rankings issued on Monday.
Recovering from rib injury which forced him to withdraw from the BMW International Open in Munich, Jeev dropped a place to 40th in this week's chart.
Jeev, however, benefited from KJ Choi's slump in form that pushed the US-based Korean, who held the number one Asian's spot for quite a while, down to the 43rd place.
Jyoti Randhawa, who missed the cut in the BMW International Open, was the next Indian at 139, while Orlando-based Arjun Atwal, who remains out of action due to injuries, is 276th.
Shiv Kapur, who finished tied eighth in Munich, is at 198, while SSP Chowrasia, who came tied 21st in Munich on Sunday, was at 403.
