Jeev: A win is round the corner

Jeev Milkha Singh on Wednesday said cutting down on the number of tournaments this season has helped him and exuded confidence of breaking his three-year old title drought soon.

Jeev, who last won in Japan in 2008, has completely recovered from his back injury, which plagued him for the last three years.

"It helped to reduce the number of events. I used to play 40 weeks a year, but this season I will be playing 35 weeks. I was injured for the last three years but now my fitness is okay and the game is also getting better," said Jeev.

"I have been hitting the ball quite well. I have gained around 10 yards. I am also working on my putting and chipping. If I can improve on that count, I am sure a win will be round the corner," he added.

Asked about his next tournament, Jeev said: "I have been playing for last five weeks in a row and so I took a two-week off. I will play the BMW-PGA Championship at Wentworth from May 24 next."

Jeev, who turned 40 last December, said he wants to earn a place at the 2016 Olympics when golf makes its debut at the Games, to be held at Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

"My dad (Milkha Singh) represented India in so many Olympics and my goal is to represent India at the 2016 Games. It would be a proud moment for me and my family, if a father and a son can represent India in two different sports."
