Thongchai wraps up week in tied-fifth

  • SHARE
June 30: Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee enjoyed another remarkable week in Europe when he fired a sparkling seven-under-par 65 to finish tied fifth at the BMW International Open on Sunday.
The three-time Asian Tour Order of Merit winner and EurAsia Cup captain was denied a place in a four-man play-off by one shot after he closed with a four-day total of 18-under-par 270.
Victory would have been the Thai's second win on European soil in a month but he was nevertheless still pleased with his battling performance at the German showpiece which was won by Paraguay's Fabrizio Zanotti.
"I played really well this week. The weather and course conditions were perfect. I was happy to be in contention again and I knew I had to get to nine or 10-under to stand any chance of winning. It's okay. I still enjoyed myself today with a bogey-free round," said Thongchai.
India's Gaganjeet Bhullar meanwhile signed off with a 70 to take a share of 33rd place.
Over in the United States, Korea's Noh Seung-yul could not repeat his third round heroics where he charged into contention by entering the final round of the Quicken Loans National trailing the leader by two.
A final round 70 however saw the 2010 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner slipped 28 places down to finish in tied-30th.
Ends.
