Jyoti Randhawa has toppled Jeev Milkha Singh to be India's highest ranked golfer in the latest world rankings, which has him in the 84th place.

Randhawa, who has been consistent on the European Tour and finished a creditable tied seventh in the Qatar Masters on Sunday, rose to the 84th position leapfrogging Jeev.

Jeev, who had a wonderful 2006 before his form took a nosedive in the subsequent year, is now ranked 86th after his lowly tied 56th finish in Doha.

Next Indian on the ranking ladder is seasoned campaigner Gaurav Ghei at 231, while European Tour regular Shiv Kapur is 267.

Meanwhile, world number one Tiger Woods' fourth consecutive Buick Invitational title extended his lead over Phil Mickelson at the top of the ranking table to 11.02 average points.
