Jeev was tied with Peter Baker (England), the current Order of Merit leader.

“I played well this week in the windy conditions. It is not an easy course in those conditions. I am currently in 14th place in the season long Order of Merit Rankings,” he informed the media.

Jeev will compete in the MCB Tour Championship in Mauritius next week, from December 6-10, 2023, at Constance Belle Mare Plage. It is the season’s final event.

“My target for next week is to finish in the top 10 on the Legends Tour Order of Merit. If I manage that it will enable me to qualify for invites for all the Senior Majors in 2024. Now that would be very special,” he remarked.

“I kept my card on the Japan Senior Tour last week, so things are shaping up nicely,” said Jeev, who will return to Dubai following the Mauritius tournament.
