Jeev fails to make it to semis

other Updated: Nov 01, 2009 01:57 IST

A back-nine fightback by Jeev Milkha Singh fell just a bit short and he missed making the semifinals of the Volvo World Match Play championships on Friday.

Jeev, who at one stage fell four holes behind Ross Fisher after 10 holes, narrowed the gap down to just two with two holes to go. A missed putt on 17th ended his hopes despite the birdie, which further reduced the gap to just one.

Fisher's one hole win earned him a second victory and, with four points, he topped the pool and moved into last four.

In the semifinals at World Match Play, Anthony Kim will meet Robert Allenby while Angel Cabrera will clash with Ross Fisher.
