Thongchai savours memorable week at the Masters

Black Mountain sponsored player Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand did what no other Thais could not do at the Masters.After making the early exit in his two previous appearances in 2006 and 2010, the Thai star finally made the cut at Augusta National last week and went on to cap a magnificent week by posting a one-over –par 73 to finish in tied-37th
place with a four-day total of seven-over-par 295. Compatriots Sukree Onsham, Thaworn Wiratchant and Prayad Marksaeng are the other Thais who have played at the Masters, but it is Thongchai who now holds the distinction of being the first Thai to feature in all four rounds at the Masters Tournament after carding rounds of 73, 74, 75 and 73. Thongchai will head to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where he is expected to feature prominently on the leaderboard at the Maybank Malaysian Open this week.
