Jeev finishes inside top-10

Jeev, who was second at the end of two rounds, struggled through the third and it continued for the front nine of the final round before finding three birdies on the back nine.

He shot 68 in the final round to end tied 10th with a total of 17-under 271 for the week at the Luxehills International Country Club.

Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium cruised to his first European Tour victory as he won by a four shots with a final round six-under 66 and a total of 24-under 264.

Jeev was one-under for the first nine and 14-under for the week at that stage in a low-scoring tournament. But then birdies on 14th, 16th and 18th saw him get into top-10. It was his first top-10 since his tied seventh at the Hong Kong Open in November last year.

Atwal slips to 36th
Arjun Atwal slipped to tied 36 following a one-over 72 third round at the Heritage golf tournament in South Carolina.

Atwal had birdies on 10th and 12th and his bogeys came on eighth, 13th and 17th.
Meanwhile, Luke Donald of England is one round away from becoming World No 1 after a one-under 70 which put him one ahead of defending champion Jim Furyk.

Donald is third in the world behind top-rated Martin Kaymer, who’s not playing this week, and No 2 Lee Westwood. But Donald would claim the top spot with a victory at Harbour Town, despite Westwood winning fares the Indonesian Masters.

Bhullar tied 20th
Gaganjeet Bhullar shot a modest even par 72 in the final round to finish tied 20th in the $750,000 Indonesian Masters in Jakarta.

Bhullar finished with a four-day total of five-under 283. World number two Lee Westwood, who turned 38 on Sunday, got himself a perfect birthday present, winning the title for his first victory this year.
