Jeev shines, Randhawa falters in Alstom Open de France
Paris: Jeev Milka Singh carded a second successive three-under 68 to notch up the best finish among Indians, signing off tied 16th even as Jyoti Randhawa slumped after faltering in the final round of the Alstom Open de France.
Jeev ended the tournament with a total of five-under 279 after striking six birdies against three bogeys in the final round.
His front nine was an eventful affair as he struck three birdies and stumbled to an equal number of bogeys to make the turn even-par.
But he made amends in a blemishfree back nine by striking three birdies.
In contrast, it was a final-round disaster for Randhawa who carded a 12-over 83. The Delhi-pro dropped five bogeys, three double bogeys against just a lone birdie in a horrendous performance to total five- over 289. Randhawa, who was tied fourth overnight, signed off tied 60th.
Similar was the story of Shiv Kapur, who carded a seven-over 78 in the final round to end with a total of 12-over 296 to be 80th on the leaderboard.
Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez (67) picked up the title with a total of 11-under 273.
