Jeev Milkha Singh braved rain and tough conditions here today to win the Casio World Open golf tournament and end his six-year title drought in Japan.

Displaying his best iron play of the season, Jeev closed his final round with a 10-foot birdie that gave him a score of four-under 68 and a four-round total of 16-under 272 to bag the cheque of $241,000.

David Smail of New Zealand shot a 68 and finished two shots behind Jeev at 14-under 274, while Shingo Katayama (68), Toshinori Muto (70), Lin Keng Chi (69) and Tetsuya Haraguchi (72) ended third at 12-under 276.

The win was Jeev’s first in Japan in six years and his third title of the year after wins at Volvo China Open in April and Volvo Masters in September. It also meant Jeev has now won on three Tours this year with Volvo China being a joint-sanctioned event on Asian and European Tour and Volvo Masters the biggest event on European Tour.
