Sentosa, Singapore, Nov 15 (UNI) Jeev Milkha Singh today racked up four-under through 14 holes to be tied fifth place at the Barclay's Singapore Open with four more holes to go in the third round, which will be completed tomorrow.

The Indian ace started the day at one-under and when play was called off due to rain, he had three birdies, a spectacular 130-yard eagle and one bogey to his name.

''I was very happy with my play, though the neck did cause me some discomfort. I hit the ball solid and putted decently, though a couple of them stopped just short or went past slightly,'' Jeev, who woke up with a pain in neck and shoulder said after his round.

Among the other Indians fray, Jyoti Randhawa started with three bogeys in first four holes from the 10th but rallied strongly to close with a one-over 72 at three-over 216.

SSP Chowrasia was five-over for the tournament and one-over for the day and had four more holes to play.

Digvijay Singh had a tough day, starting at even par, he opened with a birdie and then had seven bogeys in the next 14 holes to go to six-over.

Young Gaganjeet Bhullar also had a bad day as he was five-over for 17 holes with two birdies, three bogeys and two double bogeys.

Shiv Kapur was four-over for the tournament.

Chapchai Nirat of Thailand is the provisional leader at nine-under with an eagle-two on the 11th.
