Kiradech aims for fast PGA Tour start

Kiradech aims for fast PGA Tour start”

The highest-ranked player in the field this week, Justin Thomas, follows in an eight-way tie for sixth on six under, alongside the likes of Louis Oosthuizen, Byeonghun An and European Ryder Cup star Paul Casey.

As you know, I had my shoulder surgery in 2016 and then I received a sponsor's exemption to play in the tournament later that year and while I didn't win then, it gave me the confidence that I needed in my comeback and I subsequently won in Mayakoba (the only PGA TOUR tournament held in Mexico). When I was a kid, my goal has been to be a part of the PGA TOUR. Past year I feel like I banged on the door a couple times. I can't explain how it feels but it is such a good moment for me. "I think I have an opportunity to play well and hopefully knock off a win or two". Coming back to Malaysia will be a good starting point, for sure.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat, the 2013 Asian Tour number one, will play in his first PGA Tour event at the CIMB Classic after becoming the first Thai to earn a PGA Tour card. "My career started here and it's nice to be back home again", said Kiradech.

If I had not received the invitation from Malaysia, who knows, I may not have played in Mayakoba.

"The golf course is in good shape".

"I've seen this event on television for so many years, and obviously Anirban (Lahiri) won the Malaysian Open here a few years ago so I've seen this golf course a lot on television and today was my first look at it". "This is always going to be the place I got my first PGA Tour victory and that's very, very special". He finished tied for 53rd at the Safeway Open last week.

Water is the primary defense for this course, but it's so short that players can usually club down to avoid any real trouble off the tee. Obviously all three events are big PGA Tour events.

I'm looking forward to defending my title and seeing my fans there again.

Here you can find everything you need to stay up to date with the world's foremost golf tour. "Every year the field gets better and better and the players get better".

He likes his chances of beating 2017 champion Pat Perez, Brandt Snedeker, Keegan Bradley and 2013 and 2014 victor Ryan Moore, who are among the starters in the CIMB field this week.

Meanwhile, in South Korea, Lydia Ko has made a tidy start to the KEB Hana Bank Championship, sitting in a tie for 10th at two-under.
