A late slump marred Jeev Milkha Singh's card and he turned in an even-par 71 in the final round to sign off tied 62nd in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open golf tournament in Las Vegas. 

The seasoned pro ended his campaign with a total of six-under 278 on Sunday. 

A 10th tee starter, Jeev stumbled to a bogey on the 11th hole before hitting a purple patch to reel off a birdie hat-trick from the 14th to 16th holes. 

A bogey-birdie finish to the back-nine left him two-under at the turn and he made it three-under by gaining a shot on the first hole. 

But things went haywire from there as he stumbled to a double-bogey on the fifth hole before dropping another stroke on the ninth to end the day rather disappointingly. 

Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra finished a couple of strokes ahead of Jeev at tied 47th after returning a fine five-under 66 which included five birdies and an eagle against a couple of bogeys. 

At the top, Scot Martin Laird (68) clinched the title after beating the American duo of Chad Campbell (69) and George McNeill (67) in a play-off. 

The trio was for the top spot tied with totals of 19-under 265 after regulation play.
