New Delhi:

Jeev Milkha Singh continues to touch dizzy heights and the on-song Indian leapfrogged to a career best 36th in the latest Official World Golf Rankings following his emotional triumph in the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup.

The Golf Nippon Series JT Cup was clearly the most memorable victory for the Indian who was hardly in the right frame of mind with his wife recuperating in a Toky hospital after delivering a stillborn baby.

Urged by her to play on, Jeev went on to win his second Japan Tour title of the year -- overall fourth this season --and the 24 rank points he earned in the process helped him break into the top 40, a height no Indian could reach before.

Besides the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup, Jeev's other triumphs this season include Singapore Open, Nagashima Shigeo Invitational Sega Sammy Cup and Bank of Austria Open.

Jeev is also assured of this year's Asian Tour Order of Merit title.

Among his compatriots, Jyoti Randhawa is ranked 147th, while the US-based Arjun Atwal (200th) is the only other Indian in the top 200.

Indian Masters winner SSP Chowrasia is way behind at 323rd.
