New Delhi, Sep 30 (UNI) Riding high on the crest of a wave after clinching two titles this season, Jeev Milkha Singh is all set to return to the Indian Open and post his maiden win at the one million dollar Asian Tour event that gets underway here from October 9.

Jeev, who finished tied fifth in the British Masters this weekend to move to 58 in the world rankings, is in amazing form during which he bagged two titles and a top 10 finish at the Majors.

The 36-year-old, who is currently ranked number two on the Asian Tour Order of Merit and is placed 10th in Europe, played in the tournament last year finishing joint 13th. The result came during a season when he was not at the peak of his powers but this year he is back on track.

He won the Bank Austria Open on the European Tour and the Sega Sammy Cup in Japan.

The Chandigarh pro's performance at the Majors has been the most heartening. For the second year in a row, he made the cut in the US Masters and finished tied 25th while arguably his finest ever week since turning professional in 1993 came when he was placed tied for ninth in the US PGA Championship, where he was the first round leader.

Other marquee names already confirmed for Indian Open, to be staged at the Delhi Golf Club here, are Swede Daniel Chopra, New Zealand's Mark Brown, who has won twice in India this year and leads the Asian Tour Order of Merit list, and last year's number one ranked player Liang Wen-chong from China.
