I've got a lot of confidence in my game and I'm looking forward to these two big weeks
After clinching his fourth European Tour title at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open last month, Jeev Milkha Singh has targeted a return to the world's top 50 by year's end.
It was Singh’s victory in Inverness, his first in four years, that granted him a place at this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
"My goal this year is to get back in the top 50 in the world," said Singh, who is currently ranked 86th in the world. "I've gone through a tough time with my injuries the last three years, but I've just hung in there and good things have come my way, especially the Scottish Open."
Singh has been paired with Zach Johnson for the first two rounds at Firestone and will tee off at 9.50am and 1.40pm local time.
He is determined to continue his recent run of fine form when he makes his third appearance at the event.
"I think the golfing Gods are back on my side, and I've got a lot of confidence in my game and I'm looking forward to these two big weeks," he said.
"I've played in Akron before twice, I've played the US PGA a few times, and it gives me good memories because my ninth place finish at the US PGA at Oakland Hills in 2008 was the best I've had in a major championship."
