Jeev Milkha Singh wins Scottish Open
Jeev Milkha Singh won this years Scottish Open in a playoff with Francesco Molinari.
The Indian number one, ranked 192 in the world, won the £470,000 prize money after a birdie on the first hole in the playoff.
The conditions were very tricky on the last day, but Singh managed to beat them best in Aberdeen.
Jeev isn’t the only member of the Singh family who’s got some sporting prowess.
His father, also known as “The Flying Sikh”, narrowly missed out on an Olympic medal in the 400m in Rome in 1960.
The buzz around the Lytham St Annes area is amazing for The Open coming back to the North West.
As I’m currently working in the newsroom for the Lytham St Annes Express, we get inundated with pictures and sightings of golf-mad celebs who’re trotting around the quiet coastal town.
The editors are getting quite excited for the arrival of Tiger Woods in his private jet, and have even let themselves loose with the thought that Barrack Obama might be coming on one day because the dates fit with the opening of the Olympics.
It’s a bit far fetched, but it’d be hilarious to see Air Force 1 trying to land and stop itself on the shortest runway known to man that is Blackpool Airport.
Nevertheless, The Open is looking to be a great event, and I’m looking forward to seeing some of the golfers and maybe some celebs having a wander around the area.
