Indian professional golfer Jeev Milkha Singh on July 15, 2012 gave two reasons to celebrate after beating Italian Francesco Molinari to win the Scottish Open and also earned a spot at the British Open next week at the Royal Lytham and St. Annes.

The day was started off with the 16th spot and then moved to the clubhouse lead. Jeev then waited for nine more groups to finish and found himself in the play-off with Francesco Molinari.

Jeev after the win said, “This is an amazing win. I waited for more than an hour, maybe longer to see if I was getting into a play-off. (Marc) Warren was playing well and then Molinari, too. I felt I had an outside chance of being in a play-off and after I finished lunch, there it was all of a sudden. I am glad I could pull it off”. After the regulation plays earlier the golfer said that he knew he was playing well.

Jeev added that he had been doing good rounds but not good tournaments. The Indian golfer said, “To have a good tournament you need to put together four good rounds and this week I did that”. This is the fourth win for Jeev in the European Tour event.
