Prom shines in the Netherlands

September 13: Thailand’s Prom Meesawat opened his campaign with a three-under-par 67 for tied ninth at the KLM Open in Zandvoort, Netherlands on Thursday.
The 29-year-old was three shots back from the leader Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain and shared ninth place with nine other players at the Kennemer Golf and Country Club.
“I haven’t played much on a links golf course before so it has been a pretty good round for me. Playing on links course is very different from playing back in Asia but you can try many different shots you like here. It’s going to be really tough if it’s windy,” said the Thai, who is nicknamed the ‘Big Dolphin’ due to his burly physique.
“It’s not really windy now and it’s great fun out there. I think this is the best start for me this season on the European Tour. I hope to keep up the good work for the rest of the week,” added Prom, who won his maiden Asian Tour title in 2006.
South African Jbe Kruger and Wu Ashun of China posted matching 69s to take a share of 31st place while Rikard Karlberg of Sweden, a two-time Asian Tour winner, carded a 70.
Jeev Milkha Singh, a two-time Asian Tour Order of Merit winner, and India’s S.S.P. Chowrasia returned with identical 71s while Liang Wen-chong of China signed for a 73.
