Jeev sixth in pro-am of Dubai World Championship

Dubai : Jeev Milkha Singh led his team to a sixth place finish in Wednesday's pro-am but the real test for the Indian star golfer starts on Thursday when he tees off in the Dubai World Championship.

Jeev and his team totalled 20-under to finish four shots behind the team led by Retief Goosen which won the event.

Meanwhile in round one, world number 60 Jeev has been paired with Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello.

Jeev has not been in the best of form in recent times but his stunning triumph over Lee Westwood in the Volvo World Match Play would give him enough confidence when he tees off at the Greg Norman-designed Earth Course of the Jumeirah Golf Estates.

World's premier golfers are gunning for big money in the tournament with a whopping USD 7.5 million purse.
