As we start our second year of publishing here at The Pattaya Golfer, we look back at 2015 where we enjoyed watching Jamie Donaldson, win the Thailand Golf Championship 2015, at Amata Springs Chonburi, Lee Westward 2014 winner came in 2nd. Thailand’s young sensation Kiradech Aphibarnrat nished a fantastic year coming in seventh and Phachara Khongwatmai was sixth.
Looking forward into 2016, this will de nitely be a vintage year for golf and we will remember it for a longtime. So many exciting events planned here and worldwide.
Kicking off with our own global event right here in Pattaya is the 10th Honda LPGA Thailand with the World’s top 50 players competing. Watch out for large crowds to support the Thai LPGA players at The Old Course in February.
Looking further ahead the highlights will be watching local hero Kiradech Aphipbarnrat take on the Augusta National in April for the rst time, and then we also have the Ryder Cup and the return of golf to this year’s Olympics.
Pattaya will host the Thailand Golf Travel Mart here at the Dusit Thani in February and then to end the year we have the return of the Thailand Golf Championships to Amata.
Here at Pattaya Golfer we hope to bring you exclusive interviews with the stars, great pictures and of course local reports and news…..should be a fun 2016!!!
