Jyoti second, Jeev and Kapur sixth at European Open
London, May 29 (IANS) It seemed an Indian summer at the European Open with all three Indians in the fray placed inside top-six at the end of the first round at the London Golf Club.
While Jyoti Randhawa, fresh from a skydiving holiday in the US, shot a six-under 66 to be tied second, Jeev Milkha Singh shot a 67 and Shiv kapur, who of late has taken to meditation, also brought home a 67.
Anders Hansen chipped in for an eagle on his penultimate hole to take a one shot lead at 65. The Jo'burg Open winner carded a seven under par 65 to lead Thomas Aiken, Peter Hanson, Sam Little and Randhawa by a stroke after the opening day.
Randhawa was closely followed by Kapur and Jeev on five under par, along with seven others.
'I played pretty good today. I made five birdies and no bogeys, which is a good thing. I holed a good putt on last for a par, that was like a 12-footer and that is quite satisfying,' Jeev said.
'The golf course is excellent. I think it was quite different from yesterday. Because of the wind yesterday, I think they are going to cancel the round. But the weather is nice today. I think if you're playing in the morning, you should take advantage of it, because then it's completely a different golf course without the breeze.'
Jeev added that he was dividing his time between US and Europe. 'I finished fourth in the CA Championship, so I am focussing to play a lot more in US this year. I'm going to play about 15 events there and will play as many here.'
Shiv Kapur, who has been in mid-30s in last two events, said: 'I played nine holes yesterday in the morning and then rested at home. I just told myself today that I will keep the ball in play and will create opportunities.'
On his preparations, Kapur revealed: 'Well, do I a bit of medication, the Art of Living, some yoga and meditation that's helped me calm myself down and stay in the moment rather than get ahead of myself. I think I managed to do that pretty well today.'
