California:

Ace Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh faltered on the final day of the US PGA Tour Qualifying School at La Quinta, California, when he returned a card of five-over 77 at the treacherous Stadium Course. He thus missed the opportunity to create history by becoming the first Indian to qualify for the lucrative US PGA Tour, but became the first Indian to gain a full exemption on the second-rung Nationwide Tour, which replaces the Buy.com Tour in the coming season. Jeev was finally tied for the 73rd place at three-under 429 after six rounds. More than 4,000 players started the Q-School and only 170 made it to the final stage in what is universally regarded as the toughest golf tournament in the world. The top 35 and ties were to get their PGA Tour card, and 38 players got in at eight-under 424. The next 48 received full exemption on the Nationwide Tour. (PTI)
