This week we return to the beautiful Black Mountain Golf Club for the True Thailand Classic Presented by Chang, where a strong field has gathered.
The morning marquee group of Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Thomas Pieters and Thongchai Jaidee is full of character and European Tour wins, and is bound to attract plenty of attention from the locals when they get going at 08:10 from the tenth tee.
Jiménez, who finished tied seventh in Hua Hin last year, has had two weeks away from The European Tour so will be eager to get going again, while Pieters will be taking to the lush fairways of Black Mountain for the first time.
Meanwhile, Jaidee, who is Thailand’s most successful golfer of all time, will be looking to go one better this year in his home event, having finished in a tie for second place behind champion Andrew Dodt last year.
Another home star, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, has Dodt and Kristoffer Broberg for company in the afternoon, with the trio getting under way at 12:50.
The recently-wed Aphibarnrat finished tied for fourth here last year and would love nothing more than to win his fourth European Tour title in front of the home galleries, while Broberg heads to Thailand off the back of his debut in the WGC–Cadillac Championship in Florida.
Alexander Levy and Joost Luiten are in the next two groups out after the afternoon marquee three-ball, while big-hitters Nicolas Colsaerts, Peter Uihlein and Scott Hend are also in action.
