Veteran golfer Jeev Milkha Singh slipped five places and is now ranked 935th in the latest World Golf Rankings on Monday. Jeev, recently, missed the halfway-cut in the just-concluded Open de France.
Following his tied 30th finish in the Open de France, India's Anirban Lahiri also dropped four places to 51st. Current Asian Tour leader Lahiri, 28, was 47th after the US Open that concluded on June 21. Lahiri competed at the Open de France and finished tied 30th with a four-day total of three-over 287 at the Le Golf National. This is the first time since February 9, Lahiri's ranking has moved beyond 50. In this year, he has won two tournaments—Malaysia Open and India Open—co-sanctioned by Asian and European Tours.
Bengaluru-based Lahiri, who has played this year's Augusta Masters and US Open, will wrap up his preparation for the The Open starting on July 16 as he tees off at this week's Scottish Open.
Among other Indians, seasoned Shiv Kapur also dropped nine places to be 366th as he missed the cut in Paris. Another experienced golfer SSP Chawrasia is 185th in the rankings topped by Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy. This year's Masters and US Open champion Jordan Smith of US is second.
