Jeev Milkha Singh will reach another golfing milestone in his illustrious career as he becomes the first Indian to tee up at the 16-man World Matchplay Championships here from Thursday.

The reigning Asian Tour No 1 conceded his ankle injury has not healed yet but sounded confident of making it to the semifinal. "The field is absolutely world class and it will be good to play against them in match play," said the golfer, clubbed in Group D along with Lee Westwood, Camilo Villegas and Ross Fisher. This is for the first time that an Indian will be playing in this euro 3,250,000 (approx Rs 22.6 crore) event.
