Kuala Lumpur: Jeev Milkha Singh was a relieved man despite having to play 27 holes on Friday as he finished the day tied 26th before rains drew a premature end to the second day's play at the Maybank Malaysian Open golf tournament.
Jeev knows he can get extra rest without needing to get to the course till the second half on Saturday, while many of others return in the morning to finish their second round.
A total of 76 players will return on morning of Day 3 to complete the round.
Yet, there was a tinge of disappointment, as Jeev trying to finish before the siren was sound, ended with a bogey on the ninth, his closing hole. He has bogeyed the same hole in two successive rounds now.
Jeev finished with rounds of 70 and 71 to be three-under 141 and tied 26th as most of the other Indians were still battling to stay inside the cut line, which was expected to fall on even par or one-over.
