Jeev slips in final round

Jeev slips in final round

The seasoned pro ended his campaign with a total of six-under 278 on Sunday.
A 10th tee starter, Jeev stumbled to a bogey on the 11th hole before hitting a purple patch to reel off a birdie hat-trick from the 14th to 16th holes.

A bogey-birdie finish to the back-nine left him two-under at the turn and he made it three-under by gaining a shot on the first hole.

But things went haywire from there as he stumbled to a double-bogey on the fifth hole before dropping another stroke on the ninth to end the final round  with rather disappointingly.

Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra finished a couple of strokes ahead of Jeev at tied 47th after returning a fine five-under 66 which included five birdies and an eagle against a couple of bogeys.

At the top, Scot Martin Laird (68) clinched the title after beating the American duo of Chad Campbell (69) and George McNeill (67) in a play-off.

The trio was for the top spot tied with totals of 19-under 265 after regulation play.
Chad Campbell was eliminated after the second playoff hole, the par three 17th at the TPC Summerlin layout.

Laird earned $756,000 for the win and secured a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour.

The Indian signed off with a total of nine-under 279 in the European Tour event on Sunday.

For the third time in four days, Kapur found a birdie on the third hole but made the turn even-par after dropping a stroke on the ninth in the final round.

Kapur was off to a disastrous start in the back-nine as he double-bogeyed the 11th hole but he struck form soon after, reeling off five birdies in the space of seven holes, including a hat-trick from 16th to 18th.

Englishman Lee Westwood carded a second successive six-under 66 to total a spectacular 23-under 265 and lift the title by two strokes.
