Jeev finishes tied 54th in Canadian Open

Ontaria: A wretched back-nine
marred Jeev Milkha Singh`s card as he turned in an even-par 70
in the final round to end tied 54th in the RBC Canadian Open
golf tournament here.

The seasoned Chandigarh-pro finished with a total of
three-under 277.

It was perfect start to the proceedings as Jeev slotted a
birdie on the first hole. After making pars on the next six
holes, the Indian gained consecutive shots on the eighth and
ninth to make the turn three-under.

Things, however, went awry in the back-nine as Jeev
stumbled to three bogeys -- on the 14th, 15th and 17th -- to
round off the day on a disappointing note.

Swede Carl Pettersson bagged the top honours after
returning his best card of the week -- a 67 -- to total
14-under 266.

American Dean Wilson signed off a stroke behind
Pettersson at the second spot with a 72 in the final round.
