"I am not going to South Africa next week because I am not fit enough. I am going to practice for two weeks after this, get better and then try Morocco (Hassan II) and then try take a month off, after that," Jeev said. "With the month off, I am sure with the medicine, I should get better and I can work harder on my game also," he said in Mumbai at the IPL-style Louis Phillipe Cup event that started today at the BPGC course in Chembur.
The Tshwane Open is scheduled from February 27 to March 2 and after the tournament in Morocco, the star golfer is set to take another three-month break before returning to the course by taking part in the Malaysian Open scheduled from April 17.
"After Morocco, I will take a month off and then start from the Malaysian Open. Then I will play three weeks - Malaysia, Volvo China, a tournament in Korea. Then I take a week off and then I start from the Spanish Open. Then I move to Europe. Basically just play there and then I will hopefully play the British Open, US Open and hope to do well," he said.
The Chandigarh-born Arjuna awardee, winner of four European Tour events in his glittering career, rated 2013 as his worst year as he was plagued with injury problems like a tear in his shoulder.
"2013 would be the worst year so far. The reason for that is a player who is injured and not practising enough, I don't think can perform. That is the truth and reality. Now I feel, with the medicine that I am taking, my injury is 50 per cent better," he said.
"I just feel till March if the injury gets better, I will probably start working harder on my game and my performance is going to get better," Jeev added.
