Bhullar finishes second in Macau; Jeev rises to 32nd


As Thaworn continued his rich vein of form to claim his 11th Asian Tour victory with a commanding six-shot triumph, Bhullar shot a superb five-under 66 to move up the ladder and finish second. Bhullar picked up $54,250 and moved to sixth on Order of Merit.

Digvijay Singh (73, three-over 287) finished tied 43rd, down from overnight 36th and C Muniyappa, 26th after third round, dropped to tied 56th with a final round of 77 for a total of six-over 290.

Jeev breaks par

Jeev Milkha Singh finally broke par and turned in an improved four-under 68 in the third round to rise to the tied 32nd spot, but SSP Chowrasia languished at the bottom after carding a two-over 74 in the Mercedes-Benz golf Championship here.

After rounds of 72 and 74, Jeev sank in as many as five birdies against a lone bogey to take his three-day aggregate to two-under 214. Swede Hanson Peter blasted a five-under 67 to grab the lead with a total of 11-under 205.

A stroke behind were English Dyson Simon (68), Dane Hansen Soren (70) and Kingston James of South Africa (70).
