Jeev Milkha Singh's search for his first top-10 finish on the European Tour this season ended on Saturday when he carded a 70 on the final day of the Nordea Masters at the Bro Hof Slott Golf Club.
Overnight joint seventh, Jeev surged ahead but a double bogey on the 15th pulled him back and he finished at the same spot. Lee Westwood completed his warm-up for the US Open with a final round three-under 69 to win by five shots. The third ranked Westwood's 19-under 269 saw him complete his 22nd European Tour victory and his third in Sweden.
