Ace Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh is targeting to break into the top-30 world rankings as he prepares for a grueling season ahead.

"I want to break into the top 30. I'm going to play 22 US PGA tournaments this year and another eight on the European Tour," said the 38-year-old champion golfer at a function here last night to announce his association with Calaway Golf as its brand ambassador.

Jeev, currently placed 55th in the world rankings, feels humility is a great virtue for any individual to do well.

"If you stay humble you would do well," said the Chandigarh-born golfer who was the first to break into the top 50 world rankings from the country.

Jeev is very excited about the young crop of golfing talent in the country and said it augured well for the future.

"We have a talented lot. All these players are 20 or 21 and are hungry for success. I like their attitude. They have told me we want to do better than what you have done," said Jeev.

He singled out youngsters Anirban Lahiri, S P Chowrasia, Gaganjeet Bhullar, Himmat Rai, Shiv Kapur and C Muniyappa for praise and said the Indian golfers were respected all over the world now.
