Memphis : Struggling for the past two weeks on the PGA Tour, Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh finally struck form and carded a steady three-under 67 to lie tied 12th after the opening round of the St Jude Classic.

Jeev, who missed successive cuts at the Crowne Plaza International and the The Memorial Tournament before failing to qualify for the US Open, sank in five birdies against a couple of bogeys to make a decent start at the USD Purse 5.6 million tournament.

The Chandigarh-golfer was off to a fine start by striking a birdie on the third hole. He picked up another shot on the fifth before an eighth hole bogey had him one-under at the turn.

On his way back, Jeev stumbled to a bogey on the 10th but made amends by gaining strokes on the 13th, 16th and 18th to sign off a reasonably good day.

At the top, England's Lee Weswood sparked with a 63 to take the sole lead. American Casey Wittenborg was second with a 64, followed by Ireland's Padraig Harrington (65).
