Fort Worth (Texas): Jeev Milkha Singh`s
chances of making the cut for weekend action seem bleak as he
is in the bottom heap of the leader-board with a three-over 73
in the opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational here.
The seasoned Indian pro is tied for the 113th spot in the
USD 6.2 million event.
It was an ominous start to the proceedings as Jeev, who
played his back-nine first, stumbled to a bogey on the 10th
He dropped three more shots on the 12th, 15th and 17th
but a birdie on the 16th left him three-over at the turn.
The front-nine was slightly better as he mixed two
birdies with an equal number of bogeys but it was just not
enough to undo the damage done earlier.
The Indian will now have to produce a vastly improved
performance to make the cut.
At the top, it was a three-way tie for the lead with
Americans Jeff Overton, Jason Bohn and Blake Adams carding
Englishman Brian Davis was the nest best-placed at fourth
with a 64 in the opening round. PTI
