Jeev wants to return to top 50 by March

Jeev achieved his career-best ranking of 28 in March, 2009. The golfer narrowly missed out on a chance of qualifying for the 2013 British Open, as he finished 32nd in The Race to Dubai and according to the qualifying policy, the top-30 in the European Tour's money list receives invitations to participate in the 2013 edition of the tournament.

Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh is aiming to win a Major championship in the new season and said his focus would be to stay away from injuries and return to the world's top 50 by March end. The Chandigarh golfer had a good year in 2012 as he clinched his fourth European Tour title at the Scottish Open. He was also part of the winning Asian team in the Royal Trophy.

"My goal is to stay injury-free and get back into the top 50 so that I can play in the Major, which is my favourite tournament. I want to win a Major this season," Jeev said on the sidelines of the launch of the Gujarat Kensville Golf Challenge here. "I will be playing for four weeks and then take a week off. I am flying to South Africa to play at the Volvo Champions. After that I will play at Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

"So I have end of March and five tournaments to get into the top 50. There is lot of pressure but I know if I am fit and have the momentum going, I can be in top 50 once again," added the 41-year-old golfer, who achieved his career-best ranking of 28 in March, 2009. The golfer narrowly missed out on a chance of qualifying for the 2013 British Open, as he finished 32nd in The Race to Dubai and according to the qualifying policy, the top-30 in the European Tour's money list receives invitations to participate in the 2013 edition of the tournament.
