Reno: Jeev Milkha Singh dropped six
bogeys in a wretched front nine to return his worst card of
the week -- a five-over 75 -- and sign off a disappointing
tied 55th in the Reno-Tahoe Open golf tournament here.

The seasoned Indian ended his campaign with a total of
five-over 293.

The 10th tee starter began well by striking a birdie on
the 11th but that was to be the lone bright spot in his card.

One-under at the turn, Jeev was undone by a string of
dropped shot starting on the first hole itself. He stumbled to
five more bogeys -- on the third, fourth, sixth, eighth and
ninth to round off a disappointing day.

American Matt Bettencourt (68) clinched the title with a
total of 11-under 277, while his compatriot Bob Heintz (69)
finished a stroke adrift at the second spot.
