• Learned to play golf in Hua Hin as he had to walk through a golf course daily to get to school. His first club was made with bamboo and a piece of scrap metal. • Said he is lucky to be alive today as he had mixed with the wrong crowd during his youth and golf helped save him. • Tipped by Greg Norman to be a world-class player after the Aussie great played alongside him in the Dubai Desert Classic in 1996 and Norman again was impressed when the two played together in the BMW Asian Open in 2004. • A laidback character. Owes his success to his mentor, Supphaporn Maphungphong, who passed away in November, 2007.
