Jeev Milkha Singh signed off tied 67th in the 91st PGA Championship without a single sub-par card against his name, turning in his week’s worst - a six-over 78 - in the final round.

After rounds of 74, 73, 74 and 78, Jeev finished with an aggregate of 11-over 299 to miss out on an automatic berth in the Greg Norman-led Presidents Cup International team.

Eventual winner Y E Yang overtook Rory Sabbatini and Jeev to win the final automatic berth in the international team. Jeev will now have to wait for his chances when Norman announces two captain’s picks.

The Hazeltine National Golf Club once again bared its fangs and Jeev struggled all along. After two par shots, Jeev birdied the third hole to go one-under and was left to do the catching up job for the rest of his round. Jeev ran into a wretched six-hole stretch dropping five shots and picking just one.

Three-over at the turn, the Indian birdied the 11th and 14th holes but his woe was far from over as he dropped as many as five bogeys in this stretch to slip down the leaderboard. Jeev was still richer by USD 14,050 for his exploits.
