Thongchai Goes Out Fighting

  • SHARE
February 22: Thongchai Jaidee put up a resilient fight against Sergio Garcia before bowing out from the first round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play championship on Thursday.
The Thai ace was trailing by two shots on Wednesday before play was suspended due to a freak snowstorm but returned with a new spring in his step by winning the last two holes to force play into extra holes.
The former paratrooper from Thailand almost took the 19th when his putt lipped out but it was Garcia who birdied the 20th to set-up a second round clash with American Matt Kuchar.
Asian Tour honorary member K.J. Choi was also kicked out by Justin Rose after losing two matches with one more to play to the Englishman.
