Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh saved his best for the last as he carded a sparkling four under 66 in the final round to rise 16 rungs and sign off tied 45th in the Greenbrier Classic golf tournament .

Jeev ended his campaign with a total of 10 under 270 after striking five birdies against just a lone bogey in the
final round.

However, the other Indian in fray, Arjun Atwal, dropped down the leaderboard tied 68th after his worst card of the
week a one over 71 left him six under 274 overall.

It was not the kind of start that Jeev would have wanted as he went one over after just two holes courtesy a bogey on the second hole.

But he more than made up for the lapse by striking birdies on the fifth, sixth and ninth to make the turn
two under.

The Chandigarh pro then played out a flawless back nine that also included birdies on the 13th and 17th holes.

In contrast, an erratic Atwal went on to stumble to four bogeys against three birdies in his topsy turvy round.

At the top, Australian Stuart Appleby made a stunning final round surge to clinch the trophy. Appleby turned in an
astonishing blemishfree 11 under 59, which included nine birdies and an eagle, in the final round to total 22 under
258.

Overnight leader Jeef Overton (67) finished second with a total of 259.
