Thongchai saves his best for last

Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee ended the week on a positive note by closing with his best score of three-under-par 69 at the US$8.5 million WGC-HSBC Champions on Sunday. It was the Black Mountain sponsored player’s first under-par and lowest round since his opening day’s 71 at the year’s final World Golf Championship event.

Thonghcai conceded he fell victim to the testing conditions and admitted he was far from his beest after signing off with a four-day total of three-over-par 291.

“It was a tough week, to be honest. The course set-up was tough and the pin positions were difficult. I hit the ball well but just couldn’t hole my putts.

I’m glad I was able to catch up a little bit today but this is a course that can really get you and you need to be at the top of your game

I was not in the best of form this week but that’s golf. You cannot win every week. There will be some good weeks and some bad weeks.” said Thongchai.

Over in India, Jazz Janewattananond, another Black Mountain sponsored player, added a 69 to previous rounds of 69, 70 and 71 to enjoy his fourth top-10 finish on the Asian Tour.
