Jeev at tied fourth

Yokohama (Japan), Oct 4, 2012, PTI: 0:06 IST
Jeev Milkha Singh made a strong opening with a four-under 68 that placed him fourth after the first round of the Canon Open 2012 on the Japan Tour.

Playing his fourth tournament in a row in Japan, Jeev had as many as six birdies, but his closing bogey, only the second one in the round, spoilt what was otherwise a fine round.

Jeev, a four-time winner on the Japan Tour, is two behind joint leaders — the 2009 champion Yuta Ikeda (66) and Yuki Sato — while Taichi Teshima (67) was third. Jeev shared the fourth place with Ryo Ishikawa (68), Shigeki Maruyama and three others.

Bhullar at tied 57th

Gaganjeet Bhullar overcame the pain of a triple bogey to keep himself afloat with a round of one-over 72, which put him at tied 57th place at the end of the first round of the CJ Invitational hosted by KJ Choi in Yeoju, Korea.

Canada’s Ryan Yip seven-under-par 64 to take the first round lead.
