Singh walks down memory lane at Shinhan Donghae Open

Incheon, Korea, September 12: India’s Jeev Milkha Singh returned to nostalgic grounds, hoping to revive his winning memories of the Shinhan Donghae Open which starts on Thursday.
Singh won his first professional tournament at the Shinhan Donghae Open in 1994 and has since gone on to establish himself as one of Asia’s most decorated player, winning six times on the Asian Tour and multiple times in Japan and Europe.
Singh, who was also Asia’s number one in 2006 and 2008, will be up against a strong field that features some of the region’s best players including Korea’s Sangmoon Bae, compatriot and defending champion Gaganjeet Bhullar, Thailand’s Thaworn Wiratchant and Malaysia’s Gavin Green, who is currently fifth on the Asian Tour Order of Merit.
Green is confident of mounting a strong challenge when the 33rd edition of the Korean showpiece gets underway at the Bear’s Best Cheongna Golf Club.
The Malaysian’s bold assessment of his chances is backed by a stellar season where he has enjoyed three top-10 results, including two runner-up finishes in India and Chinese Taipei.
The 23-year-old believes he can continue riding on his rich vein of form and make a strong push for his entry into the winner’s circle on the Asian Tour.
Thaworn is meanwhile happy to be back on the Asian Tour after spending much of his time playing on the Senior Tour in Europe this year.
The 50-year-old holds the most Asian Tour victories with 18 titles and is looking to add to his tally with another grandstand finish this week.
