Prom blog: In good company!

December 11: Prom Meesawat of Thailand was in great company at the Thailand Golf Championship when he teed off with Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer. Read what he has to say in his blog after shooting a 71.

I’m very happy with my score considering my health and the tough conditions here. It is very tough to play in the wind. If you miss the fairways by a couple of yards, then you still have a chance to approach the green. But if you miss way left or right, then you have to lay up.
My back is getting better and better. I have to thank the Asian Tour physiotherapist for treating my back. I saw who I was paired with on Tuesday and I really wanted to play! I tried everything to get on the course.
I did well today but made a couple of mistakes. This is the first time I’m playing with Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer. I certainly learnt a few things and show them a few things as well!
Kaymer got into trouble on the 14th hole and he fought back to one-under which was great! I asked him about the course conditions and he said it was amazing except for the long rough.
For me, I need to get more distance. They have a big advantage on the par fives because of their distance off the tees. If I can get 10 yards more than I think I can do better. They do very well in windy conditions because their ball speed is faster.
It was good fun today and I look forward to tomorrow.
