Sentosa, Oct 31 (UNI) Ace Indian Pro Jeev Milkha Singh is determined to regain the Asian Tour's Order of Merit crown with some great showings in the big-money events in the region over coming weeks.
The seasoned Indian, Asia's number one in 2006, trails Mark Brown of New Zealand by a little over 150,000 dollar but the next three tournaments in Asia, offering a combined purse of 12.5 million dollar, are bound to change the merit list.
''I've won the Order of Merit title and I would love to win a second. It will come down to who does best in the HSBC, the Barclays and the UBS. There's huge prize money in those events and a win or a top finish in any of them would set you up for the merit title. It's going to be very interesting,'' Jeev said.
''Mark and I have a good contest going and I know just how determined he is to win the number one title just as I am to do the same,'' the Indian added.
The Asian Tour now heads to the 5 million dolllar HSBC Champions in Shanghai next week, followed by the 5 million dollar Barclays Singapore Open and 2.5 million dollar UBS Hong Kong Open.
