Hua Hin’s most renowned senior professional golfer Prayad Marksaeng could be the reason the LPGA lady professionals did so well at an unusual tournament held at Royal Hua Hin Golf Course on 9th September.

This event pitted some of Thailand’s best known Senior professionals against the best lady golfers in the land from the Thai LPGA.  There were also some VIP amateurs in the field including Cha-Am Mayor Khun Nugool Pornsomboonsiri and Phetchaburi & Prachuap Khiri Khan Golf Course Association President Khun Suvit Reanroogruang.

Khun Suvit (pictured left) was asked about his golfing handicap, which he described as zero. A fact check may be required for that declaration!

Prior to the tee off, a golf clinic was conducted Prayad Marksaeng.  Marksaeng is Hua Hin’s best known professional golfer who has many major wins.  The Asian Tour has been a favourite with six victories, including the 2017 Singapore Open at the age of 50. 

A crowd of predominately male golfers gathered around the 10th tee where Marksaeng showed them how he could consistently drive the ball over 300 metres with a predicted draw or fade, high or low.

Meanwhile many of the ladies were more interested in sharpening their putting skills than getting ready to ‘boom’ their drives on the course.  As a result the old adage, ‘drive for show, putt for dough’, once again proved to be one of golf’s best predictors of success; in this case success for the LPGA ladies. 

Footnote: Golf purists will also be aware that practice on the course before playing results in disqualification; in this case Marksaeng’s demo on the 10th hole!
