Meet Thongchai

Spent his childhood in a two storey wooden house which backed onto a golf course.

 

Represented his province at football but was injured when a wooden skewer was embedded in his foot. During recuperation he sneaked onto the Army Golf Club behind his home in Lop Buri, tied the discarded head of a five iron to a bamboo stick and started playing golf. Joined the Royal Thai Army in 1989, aged 20, becoming a paratrooper and then turned professional ten years later.

 

Has since won 19 titles worldwide, including eight on the European Tour. Was the first Thai to win on the European Tour and the first Thai to compete in all four Majors. Was playing captain for Asia at the inaugural EurAsia Cup.
