Jeev reaches career-best 29th

March 16, 2009 14:06 IST

Jeev Milkha Singh continues to soar high, reaching a career-best 29th following his fourth-place finish in the WGC-CA Championship with compatriot Jyoti Randhawa giving him company in the top 100 list of Official World Golf Rankings issued on Monday.

Jeev had a fairytale campaign in the WGC-CA Championship where a sensational opening round of seven-under 65 put him in the four-way lead.

The seasoned Indian eventually finished fourth at the Blue Monster in Doral to collect a cheque of $ 360,000 and jump seven places from last week's 36th position.

Randhawa, who broke into the top 100 following his triumph in the Thailand Open, is placed 96th in the chart.

US-based Arjun Atwal is way down at 237th, while last year's Indian Masters winner S S P Chowrasia is placed 331st.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson's second title of the year at the World Golf Championships-CA Championship helped him move up one place to world number two and to within 0.52 average points of number one Tiger Woods.
