Jeev bang on target, tops Westwood

Jeev bang on target, tops Westwood

In his first Group D encounter, the Indian pulled off a huge surprise by scripting a stunning six-hole victory over Westwood. Jeev was joined by Ross Fisher at the top after the Englishman had mastered Camilo Villegas by two holes. Golfers in each four-player group face each other in a round-robin format and the group toppers will make it to Saturday’s semifinals.

There was no sign of his ankle injury as Jeev birdied the first, fourth and fifth holes and was five-up after seven holes as Westwood bogeyed the third, sixth and seventh, while failing to sink a single birdie.

Chopra grabs lead

Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra (65) grabbed the lead while Gaganjeet Bhullar (67) rose to tied seventh before inclement weather cut short the second round of the $ five million Singapore Open golf tournament here on Friday.

The 35-year-old Chopra sank in six birdies to take the lead with a total of seven-under 135.
Overnight leader Ian Poulter of England was tied with Chopra on seven-under after shooting two birdies in three holes of his second round, which will resume at 7.40am (Local Time) on Saturday.
