Jeev Milkha Singh, who is now not a regular on the Japan Golf Tour, will lead the Indian challenge even as Rahil Gangjee seeks a sold finish at the Asia-Pacific Diamond Cup which starts here tomorrow.

Jeev, who has most International titles amongst all Indian professional golfers, will be one of the seven Indians teeing up at the Ibaraki Country Club’s West course.

The other six Indians in the field include Jyoti Randhawa, the first Indian to have ever won a title in Japan and to date the only one other than Jeev. Also in the fray are Arjun Atwal, Rahil Gangjee, Chiragh Kumar, Gaganjeet Bhullar and Himmat Rai. Four of the seven have won multiple title on Asian Tour while Gangjee, Chiragh and Himmat have one each.

Gangjee, who has had decent results this season will be looking at a good finish to move up from 15th place to inside Top 10 and earn a spot into the lucrative CIMB Classic in Malaysia next month.

Gangjee, who has had Top-10 finishes in Maybank Malaysian Open (T-9), Hero Indian Open (T-10) and Afr-Asian Mauritius Open (T-7), will be looking for another good finish to add a second Asian Tour title to the first he won way back in 2004.

“I have been playing well, so I hope I can get a decent start and then challenge for a good finish,” said the jovial Gangjee, who has recently shifted base from Kolkata to Bengaluru, where golfing facilities are better.
