Jeev 36th in golf rankings

March 09, 2009 14:17 IST

Jeev Milkha Singh remains the best placed Indian at 36th while compatriot Jyoti Randhawa, thanks to his Thailand Open triumph, rose three notches to 117 in the latest Official World Golf Rankings issued on Monday.

Jeev hung on to his 36th place as the seasoned Indian prepares to tee off in the prestigious USD 8,500,000 WGC-CA Championship in Miami later this week.

For Randhawa, the Thailand Open triumph not only fetched him his eighth Asian Tour title but also helped him jump three rungs from his last week's 120th place.

TheĀ $ 79,250 winner's cheque which he collected at Phuket also helped Randhawa leapfrog to the second place in the Asian Tour Order of Merit with $244,555 against his name.

Among other Indians, Orlando-based Arjun Atwal is ranked 229th while Kolkata pro SSP Chowrasia is placed 364th in world rankings.
