Getting To Know Your Two Obscure PGA Championship Leaders
After day one, Jeev Milkha Singh and Robert Karlsson were leading the last major of the season.
Maybe not the two most recognizably names in golf, I thought it would be fun to check out some things about the two.
Jeev Milkha Singh was born in Chandigarh, India, but attended Abilene Christian University, which I heard is the new hot spot for those crazy Indian Christians to head. His wife's name is Kudrat and says that "watching movies" is what he enjoys doing. Singh has won three times on the European Tour including the Bank Austria Golf Open earlier this season.
Robert Karlsson might not be the most well known golfer, but he is the only player this season to finish in the top-10 in the first three major championships. His nickname is Ivan Drago obviously because of his size (6'5") and the fact that most Americans think anyone not from American are all the same (Karlsson from Sweden, Drago was from the Soviet Union). His interests include family and sports (exxxciting dude, this Karlsson).
