Jeev Milkha Singh

Jeev is the son of an Olympic runner, Milkha Singh. Struggled with injury in the early 2000s but recovered sufficiently to taste victory in China, which also made him the 10th player to surpass the U.S. $1 million mark in career earnings. Comes from Chandigarh, which has produced top golfers such as Amritinder Singh and Amandeep Johl. Previously trained under Sam Frost but decided to do it alone in 2004, relying on Amrintinder's help and analyzing his own game through video tapes. Says reading mental books has helped his game.

Jeev is one of Asia's most decorated and global players, having won six times on the Asian Tour and multiple times in Japan and Europe. He is also a two-time Asian Tour No. 1-ranked player and was conferred an honorary membership in 2009. In 2011, Jeev produced successive T-4 finishes in the Macau Open presented by Cityneon and Asia-Pacific Panasonic Open in Japan and was also equal ninth and tied 11th at the Thailand Golf Championship and Avantha Masters, respectively. His season was also hampered by a back injury that saw him cut back on his schedule globally. He competes in Europe as well and played on the PGA Tour in 2010, where he finished fourth at the WGC-CA Championship in Doral. He carded his best finish of the season in Asia with T-7 at the UBS Hong Kong Open. Jeev enjoyed a stellar year in 2008, winning four titles across the globe and lifting a second Asian Tour's Order of Merit crown in three years. After starting the season with two disappointing runner-up finishes at the Indonesia Open and Ballantine's Championship in Korea, he hit top form by the Bank Austria Golf Open on the European Tour and Sega Sammy Cup in Japan. His biggest triumph of the season came at the Barclays Singapore Open in November, when he held off major champions Padraig Harrington and Ernie Els by one stroke. Victory helped him become the first man in Asian golf history to win over $1 million during a season, eventually earning $1.45 million, which is a Tour record. He went on to win the Nippon Series JT Cup in Japan which saw him end the year in 35th place on the Official World Golf Ranking. Jeev also finished tied 25th in the Masters in what was his second appearance at Augusta National and tied for ninth at the PGA Championship, his best in a major. Was named the Players' Player of the Year. In 2006, he also won four times across the world and claimed a first Asian Tour's Order of Merit title. He ended a frustrating seven-year winless drought with a one-stroke victory at the Volvo China Open in April which was an emotional triumph as a wrist injury had curtailed his career after winning four titles in the late 1990s. He went on to win the Volvo Masters, the European Tour's season-ending event, in Spain and then back-to-back titles in Japan at the Casio World Open, his first triumph in Japan, and the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup. He was the third Indian to win the Order of Merit title with a then-record earnings of $591,884. Such was his great form that he also notched no fewer than 15 other top 10s on the Asian, Japan and European tours. He also qualified and played in all four rounds at the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. Was also named the Players' Player of the Year and also won the Special Achievement Award for his magical season. In 2007, Jeev played primarily in Europe and the United States. Made a successful Masters Tournament debut in April, becoming the first Indian golfer to participate in the Masters by finishing tied for 37th and topped the leader board briefly after nine holes. Also played in all four rounds at the U.S. Open, finishing 36th but he was generally disappointed that he did not win that season. Prior to 2006, Jeev came close to winning at the start of the 2005 season in the Okinawa Open. He led the third round by four shots but was overtaken by a fast-charging Kiyoshi Miyazato in the final round and settled for T-2. Posted two other top 10s. In 2002, Jeev became the first player from his country to qualify for the U.S. Open. He carded four straight 75s to settle for joint 62nd position in what was his first appearance in a major. His American adventure continued at the U.S. PGA Tour Qualifying School finals where he was on the verge of securing his card for 2003 but shot a disappointing final-round 77 when a level-par round would have seen him through. Jeev was also the first Indian golfer to qualify for the European Tour. Having won his card at the end of 1997, he contended for numerous titles, but relinquished his playing rights in 2002 and focused primarily in Asia and Japan. In 1996, he was part of the Indian team that stunned Scotland in the Dunhill Cup in St. Andrews where Jeev beat Andrew Coltart. Has also finished second in the following events - 1995 Passport Open, Korea, lost in a playoff in the 1997 Asia Pacific Ericsson Masters in Indonesia, 1998 Hero Honda Masters, 1998 Thailand Open, tied second in the 1999 South African Open and 2001 Iiyama Cup, 2006 Pakistan Open, 2006 SK Telecom Open in Korea and 2006 Yomiuri Memorial Open in Japan.

The first Indian golfer to qualify for The European Tour continued to compete at the very highest level in 2011, finishing 94th in The Race to Dubai. The last of his three European Tour titles came in 2008 in Austria, and with eight top tens he finished a career-high 12th on the Order of Merit. Off the course, the highlight came when he was granted the Padma Shri by the Indian government, an award the equivalent of a knighthood - given to Indian citizens to recognize their distinguished contribution in various spheres of public life, including the arts, industry and sports. He really hit his stride in 2006 with wins in the Volvo China Open and the season-ending Volvo Masters at Valderrama. In July, 2012 won for the fourth time on the European Tour at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. He finished 2012 32nd in the Race to Dubai with earnings of euro 926,062.
