Thongchai hopeful of French delight

Black Mountain’s Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand will be seeking his third victory on European soil when he steps up to the tee at this week’s Alstom Open de France. Having been denied a win in Germany where he finished tied for fifth, all eyes will be on the Asian legend to put up another battling performance against the European heavyweights that include Graeme McDowell, Martin Kaymer and home favourite Victor Dubuisson.

Another Black Mountain sponsored player, Pelle Edberg of Sweden will be in action at the Aegean Airlines Challenge Tour in Germany while Alex Cejka will tee up at the Nova Scotia Open in Canada.

The German veteran is currently in third place on the money list and will be buoyed with confidence following his tied-12th finish on home soil last week.
