The sun was finally out ending the gloom at Club de Golf Valderrama but there was no end to the misery of Indian pro Jeev Milkha Singh, who capped a disastrous week with a final-round 82 that left him at the bottom of the leader-board at the Volvo Masters in Sotogrande.

The Indian golfer ended his campaign, that saw him struggle in the cold, windy and wet conditions throughout the tournament, with a total of 24-over 308 at tied 54th.

The weather-gods finally relented on the final day and Jeev started his last round rather well with a birdie on the first hole but even as the sun became brighter, the Indian's day slipped into gloom.

And the slide started with a bogey on the par-five fourth hole. A couple of double bogeys and a bogey left him five-over at the turn.

If the front nine was bad, the back nine turned out to be even worse and he opened with back-to-back bogeys on the 11th and 12th before stumbling to another bogey and a double bogey to round off his most wretched day in the greens in Sotogrande.

At the top, Dane Soren Kjeldsen (71) clinched the title by two strokes with a total of eight-under 276.

Germany's Martin Kaymer (68) and Englishman Anthony Wall (69) were tied for the second spot.
